The economic boom from the industrial revolution led to the dominance of utility and pleasure causing the marginal revolution to establish wrong ideas. Because of profit maximization, for example, monied people were no longer happy with 5-20% return but wanted 100-500% return. This caused them to stop spending, starving their own economy of money.
After that, the problems began as panics, crashes, world wars, and cold wars as people were taught that their loss was caused by someone else instead of themselves.
Economics was formalized after the marginal revolution of the 1870's, as the direct descendant of Mercantilism which believed that money is wealth. This belief continues today as the 'liquidity preference' advocated by John Maynard Keynes. Money allows gambling which lets anyone get wealth by chance, naturally creating more volatility as the world becomes richer through speculation in stocks, commodities, property, crypto, etc. Economics was easy to sell to people because selfish-interest is quite common.
This gambling mentality, together with the core beliefs in Economics such as profit maximization and equilibrium have led to boom and bust, best seen in the the Roaring 20's boom and the 1930's Great Depression bust. The failure of DSGE during the 2008 Financial Crisis shows the absurdity of Economics.
Economists, therefore, should not be surprised at recurring economic crises because their very teachings propagate them. In fact, it would be very surprising if there would be no crises while Economics is being taught in schools.
Well, not really. The problem is that money is a number, like a particle, whereas value is a feeling, like a wave. This wave-particle duality then creates problems:
Having a lot of money gives the ego power over other egos, giving a feeling of superiority to the monied-ego, leading to arbitrary actions which encroaches on other egos, creating injustice and eventually, evil.
A dirt-poor evil bum can hurt a few people, but an ultra rich evil man can hurt so many.
SORAnomics uses the effort theory of value, facilitated by agreements which can store wave-data as ethics and ego-data, which is then processed by in order to prevent injustice and the growth of evil. This prevents democracies from degenerating into tyranny and aristocracies from slipping into oligrachy, in Socrates-speak.
If you work for 1 hour in exchange for $10, then your work-information generated in that hour will be overwritten by the $10-money-information, just as a particle is bumped off by another particle. You don't remember most of what you did in every day of the first month of your first job, but you remember your first salary amount very well.
In contrast, a labor-for-labor system would retain all the information* about that labor, allowinig precision in labor-allocation.
Why hire a plumber and a carpenter to fix your kitchen sink and dinner table, when you can just hire one guy that has experience in both?
Prices can only be assigned by the mind relative to the current moment and place. This is why asset prices fluctuate far more than wages or most commodities. Money doesn't work for things that have a not-so-obvious-value (wave-value) like:
Economics has no way to accurately put a price on the future effects of such things, but SORAnomics has, through relativistic effort-valuation and resource credits.
The economic decline in 2020 came from the corona virus which came from the war against the Amazon which began in 2019. This is similar to the Spanish flu which came with World War I and ended after that war ended, and the Black Death which came with the Mongol Conquest. Therefore, ending the destruction of the Amazon is the best way to end the virus. Without it, the virus will merely mutate, rendering current vaccines ineffective.
Both Economics and Modern Medicine have no knowledge of Dialectics or even Metaphysics, and so they are unable to give such clear policy proposals. SORAnomics has Dialectics and Metaphysics baked in, just as Adam Smith, David Hume, and Plato were Dialectical Metaphysicians (scientific moral philosophers in layman-speak).
Economics is largely based on Physics as proven by the extensive use of Calculus and the removal of Moral Philosophy during the mid-19th century. Prior to that, Economics was called the Political Economy which was largely based on law, morals, and not math which can be dismal.
Modern Economics was created by Paul Samuelson from MIT which is a physics school. In contrast, David Hume and Adam Smith came from University of Edinburgh and Glasgow which had a balance of arts and engineering. We continue this by not only developing the metaphysical theories, but also the apps to implement them.
SORAnomics uses models that are totally data-driven and not based on imagination and wishful thinking
Classical economics has a lot of models that never saw the light of day. We bring them back to replace those created by modern economics. The models above come from actual economic data and are not merely theoretical. When combined with data science, these new models gain a predictive ability that is lacking in Economics.
In 2015, our model predicted an anomaly occuring in Q1 2018 which turned out to be the Bitcoin bubble and the 2018 correction. The model predicts a much bigger crisis in a specific year between 2019 to 2030 and this is what we are preparing for (actually, the model has specified a year in our submitted paper, but since revealing the future changes the future, it's better to make it ambiguous). Our models work in the real world because they are based on actual data and not on the desired data.
It's going to be a long one and things will not get better anytime soon, so we hope you've heeded our warnings from 2015 and spent the pre-crisis years 2016-2018 preparing
Crunching economic data from the 13th century up to the present by hand was a lot of work, so we're creating the system to automate it through ISAIAH or the We love philosophy, but we love engineering too!
SORAnomics will use the SORA system of servers to feed essential economic data to a centralized data platform. It will use instead of GDP, and grain values instead of currency values to sustain economies even during a financial crisis, as the main implementation of the effort theory of value. It can render information asymmetry obsolete since everyone can have access to the same information. Economics can get GDP data quarterly, but SORAnomics can get it by the minute, allowing real-time policymaking.

The Physiocrats invented the economic table 250 years ago to trace the supply chain in order to create a cohesive economic system to rival the money-based and arbitrary Commercial (mercantile) system. The Commercial system won and became Economics and e-commerce, creating the same trade wars and environmental destruction that it did in the 18th century. Our system brings back the Physiocrats' economic table through our data plaform in order to prevent the problems that Commercialization brings.

SORA introduces the concept of resourcization or the use of resource credits which are social contracts that give right to assets or resources (products and services) in lieu of money. Resourcization preserves value in a slowing-down economy by converting money into assets and resources, just as monetization does the opposite and speeds up an economy by converting assets and resources into money.
Resourcization prevents bubble-economies from crashing and companies from closing down by converting money-based transactions and debt into barter. This preserves production and reduces uncertainty even when the economy is starved of money, since value-data is preserved in the cloud as an alternative tool of trade and valuation. The regulator can then use this data to formulate the corrective policies.
Economists can be converted to SORAnomists to work on each decentralized economic node, instead of working for centralized finance, research, or the public sector as is the usual career path in Economics. We estimate that one SORAnomist is needed per 100,000 population and will have an objective-subjective skill set. The objective being represented by Data Science to process the data and DevOps to extract, transform, and load or serve that data. The subjective being SORAnomic science and the moral philosphy on which that science is based. In contrast, Economics is mostly objective, lacking a proper moral foundation.
A global population of 7 billion people, would need 70,000 SORAnomists, or double the staff of Facebook
A bank's core competency is the trust and security that it provides for storing precious things. SORA evolves these stores of value as transactions to turn banks into transaction clearinghouses.
Because the ego is the real root of all evil
Adam Smith's decentralized economic system integrates seamlessly with the decentralized democratic system proposed by his best friend, David Hume, which we call Social Governance (SOGO).Check Out Sogo
The problem with pure democracy is the same as the problem with money: freedom has no moral quality attached to it. A purely democratic system, without any moral checks, could spread goodness, but also could spread evil at the same time. This is easily seen in real news versus fake news and in good officials being elected along with corrupt ones. This problem was solved by Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Islam, all of which imposed moral rules.
Our regulated democratic model has a dual morality system and a moral philosophy called Moral Consequentialism baked in, to better make sure that goodness is spread while evil is checked, without having the dogma and rigid morals of religions.
Superphysics sees everything as waves that manifest as particles. SORAnomics sees price-particles in physical space-time as representations of metaphysical value-waves, just as Material Superphysics sees stars and planets as matter-particles representing their wave-idea as their 'gravitational signature'. These signatures then are the foundation of a propulsion system that is better and more efficient (since they are inherent) than the caveman technology of fire-combustion used in Newtonian rockets.
If SORAnomics is meant to create rapidly-deployable economic systems on earth and other planets, then Material Superphysics is meant to create the technology to actually travel to those planets. New planets also have new diseases and so Medical Superphysics is there to determine the wave-nature of new disease-particles quickly to either avoid or cure them faster.
