Metaeconomics is about finding balance in Self&Other-Interest,

Right&Left-Political Economy, Market&Government

Metaeconomics gives an alternative economic framework and theory that can be used to give new insights into bringing the US Economy back onto a more balanced track --- a more balanced track meaning better balance in Self&Other(within own-self)-interest, Person&Community, Business&Community, Right&Left-Politics, Market&Government --- that works for everyone. Going to extremes crashes both the market&government, as depicted by the balance scale --- the scale of economic justice --- going too far in either direction, leading to chaos in the political economy, the weighing dishes and weights on the ground! We minimize economic injustice with good balance, with everyone having a piece of the action in the capitalism based system.

And, perhaps most importantly, Metaeconomics is built on a foundation of Science&Ethics: The former points to a thorough and relentless search for the facts while the latter points to the essential role of empathy. It is empathy that is the starting point to finding a moral and ethical system that works for everyone, represented in the shared other-interest. It is that ethics (and fact, science) based shared other-interest that must temper the ego-based self-interest, temper the arrogance of self-love, temper the excessive greed in both market&government.

So, the challenge is to find the Science&Ethics based new track, forming a new Economic Narrative --- with good balance --- which will also serve to calm the political chaos and turmoil as it relates to the Political Economy. Metaeconomics is about Tempering Excessive Greed, and so it has many applications in both Market and Government, e.g. in addressing the sense of being left behind as felt in many circles, and the main driver in the ongoing political economic chaos.

The book is about the best balance in I&We, Ego&Empathy, Self&Other (shared with others, yet still internal to the own-self) -interest, Person&Community, and, writ large, balancing Market&Government. So, consider the possibilities at:

The SpringerLink site is --- and, just type in Metaeconomics in the Search box if it does now show here (and, other kinds of Metaeconomics are also listed as options at the SpringerLink site: See the section in Chapter 4 titled Kinds of Metaeconomics, in Lynne, 2020, to see how the various types relate to one another):


So, hopefully you find it intriguing, and, will also consider joining in taking Metaeconomics to the next level: I believe it has a huge potential. What think?
