Economists, including such luminaries as Steve Keen, Michael Hudson and the various advocates of MMT, do not look at the mutually digital natures of double entry bookkeeping and the money and pricing systems and so do not comprehend the monetary and economic policy and timing significances to be derived from those utterly integrated commercial infrastructure and empirical tools. They also apparently do not have a good grasp of the signatures of paradigm changes all of which the policies to be derived from the above significances accomplish.
New paradigms integratively account for and resolve lingering problems in the old/current paradigm. They do this by cutting through all of the complexities with a single new concept that simultaneously fits within all of the legitimate structures present and yet transforms and creates an entirely new pattern.
While well considered research on lower levels than paradigm changes is well and good, committing at least equal consideration to exploring and comprehending new paradigms would seem to be more fruitful because of their integratively deductive and inductive nature and the sweepingly rapid and permanent changes they effect.
In essence paradigm perception/cognition makes the process of crafting policies a fast and straightforward rational and logical process, while the inductive process by itself can be laborious, fraught with doubt to the point of apathy or over reach and so can make effective change an unnecessarily long process.
