PHIL Ecological design, a new critique 1. Mitchell waldrop complexity the emerging science at. Uploaded By qwpoxs. This suggests a different version of ecological design because to reverse this process means rethinking priorities and changing fundamental attitudes including phasing out unnecessary products, reversing the process whereby luxuries are turned into needs, living with less, and working with the natural system.
There are some signs that such ideas are beginning to have an impact on more mainstream ecodesign. Moreover, in the neoclassical economy, monopoly is not possible, negative feedback is not allowing it.
Arthur tried for many years to communicate is vision, real-market, a mix between positive and negative feedback that produces unpredictable patterns, evolution, "showing how chance events work to select one equilibrium point from many possible in random processes", and not anymore only one. In the country of maximum individual freedom, it's hard to convince.
It works. Comments I found this chapter very interesting and it makes me thinking about a lot of new things. But at the end, when I tried to summarize what this conception of science will change I couldn't find anything.
I think the lack of implementation of his theory is the reason. In fact, Arthur maid only observations and no conclusions, or interpretations, because he didn't applied this on a real system.
The "reaction" of others which he described was mine too : "Yes it's true! And so? He just defined the complement of what is the actual science of economy. As a picture, he defined the negative, where the picture is order, the neoclassical economy and the negative, chaos or increasing returns, his vision of economy. Its two different ways to describe the same thing, indeed, one is directly linked to the other, you just have to complement it to find the other one.

In other words, he didn't discovered a new model, but only the complement of the actual.
