Properties of an Economy Without Human Beings {08}

Standard economics starts with behavioral axioms and arrives at conclusions about the equilibrium properties of the economy as a whole at point t. The present paper employs objective structural axioms and random changes in order to determine the conditions for market-clearing and budget-balancing in the pure consumption economy until the limit t → ∞. From the conditions of stochastic supersymmetry, six simple behavioral rules are derived that guarantee the desired outcome. These rules contrast with actual behavior and this explains why the plans and expectations of economic man are many times frustrated.
