Inspired by my grandchildren, I was given the opportunity to come into contact with economic books.
The economy is the act of producing, distributing, and consuming goods and services, that form the basis of human community life, and the social relations between people that are formed through these acts and processes, or, in other words, the exchange of money.
Economics is more than just looking at how the economy shapes the world. Unless you have the ability to see the whole of social relations and observe it, there is a great possibility that it will be nothing more than an accumulation of knowledge of enumerating facts.
To be called scholarship, the process of finding the universal proposition (axiom) on which deduction is based is essential. Since the communal life of the human being is the basis of the economy, the axiom cannot be absolute, and it is relative or historically time-limited.
The only absolute thing is that scholarship is only for the perpetuity of human society. Learning the basic theory of economics and human history is essential to the process.
Let’s start with Adam Smith, Rosso, Marx and Keynes! Discover the relative axioms of each of them and discuss them with your friends and yourself.
For the United States, the stability of the Middle East was essential for the practical benefit of procuring oil, but after the Shale gas Revolution, their dependence on the region was reduced to almost nothing, and so the United States withdrew from Afghanistan. In contrast Dr Tetsu Nakamura continued to support with provision of medical and agricultural support. Tetsu-sensei’s actions and achievements, and his prayers, are still alive and well.
His way of life is human axiom and wisdom of fhuman being.
