If SORAnomics Had A Textbook..

To establish SORAnomic science, we need to create its textbook. Below is a suggested outline for it, roughly based on the format of The Wealth of Nations.

Unlike Samuelson’s or Marshall’s Economics which focus on markets, production, and competition, our SORAnomics focuses ultimately on the society’s happiness and the continuance of the human species. Unlike Economics which must be split into micro and macro, SORAnomics is united, as businesses, employees, and governments are seen as different parts of a single entity called a human society, working towards those ultimate goals.
