Epilogue. Economic Imagination

  • Ekkehart Schlicht


Leaning back again, we might look at all that has been said from a broader perspective. Emphasizing that economic thinking proceeds by isolating the relevant processes and stressing the hermeneutic nature of the aggregation problem amount to envisaging economic processes as embedded in a broader context. Furthermore, in deciding whether these processes possess a sufficient degree of autonomy to make it possible to treat them in isolation, we must rely primarily on disciplined imagination.
