Quantum Economics – Philosophy of the Econom

The philosophical comparison of social developments such as economy to the particle related quantum mechanics may look incidental or incoherent but conceptionally said the human perception has changed from certainty and simplicity to uncertainty and complexity too, therefore the perception of principle understanding processes in economy philosophically must change too the way it has changed in Physics and Mathematics , because the “uncertainty” of the information for particles in their “position” and “momentum” goes much farther in social sciences where the “uncertainty” of the social-economic developments and processes as reported by Governments or private groups are even more unclear and subjective. The similarity of the old “certain” and “simplified” approaches in Physics where particles were taken as measurable and static was well used in Philosophy and Economics where the processes were simplified and taken as measurable or at least easily put in systems of evaluation; thus there is not difference between the approaches in Physics and Economics in terms of thought and conventionalizing of simplifying processes and what in science seems irreversible is the constant conventionalizing complex reality. More “uncertainty” must go in the same way and apply to Philosophy and Economics as well.

The similarities between science in Physics and Economics goes even beyond the evolving perception from simplicity to complexity into the reality of realization of “unpredictability” and “uncertainty” when the same way when in Physics was realized that a “particle” is in constant change that there isn’t way it could be measured without error. It isn’t just because of the insufficiency of the human technology but because of multiple and mutually changing realities and even farther because the reality is extremely unpredictable and unknown. The same way in Philosophy and Economics could be easily realized that social economic processes are not static but “unpredictability” and “uncertainty” of ever changing social economic realities are not measurable by any means therefore to think that by using a few statistical measurements might give us a realistic picture of the economic situations is unrealistic and uncertain but even beyond the processes in social and economic structures are so diverse and changing that they are more like the particles in quantum mechanics then to any theoretical explanations of the statistic economics or principle of evaluations of Philosophical conceptions such as Marx’s or John Lodge’s or whoever’s. The ever changing reality and the uncertainty coming out of it may only be theoretically explained by some theories and philosophical conceptions but these could not provide an adequate picture of the ever changing and uncertain social-economic reality in which especially economic processes are at the most unpredictable and uncertain. The ideologies of some economic structures such as Communism or Capitalism, or Socialism which are conventionalized based on philosophical conceptions are far away from explaining the social-economic processes but more likely they are providing some “security” in a very diverse and insecure realities; these ideologies did work somehow in a political world of cold wars and ideological confrontations when one was better then the others, but do not work in an open free world where these philosophical conceptions do not find any applications or support.

To measure statistically or anyhow a realistic picture of the social-economic processes is uncertain the developed tools and indicators for such measuring are inadequate and limited but even they were developed to perfection they still would not be able to measure these processes because the processes by themselves are uncertain and could not be measured.
