What is this 'sth' attractor.
It is pretty common to describe Adam Smith as a 'reformer.' He has
identified several problems and advocates a reform program. The reform
program is largely based on assumptions about the value of egalitarianism.
Though economist like to think of themselves as something like 'engineers'
trying to keep the 'train' of state on track, their energy comes from the
reform agenda, not the science (if there is any).
For econophysics to get out of the banks and mutual funds where it help a
minority, it would have to link into this reform energy.
