The Theory of Value

The Theory of Value

(p.33) Chapter Three The Theory of Value
The Nature of Value

Nick Gogerty

Columbia University Press

This chapter is theoretical and less directly applicable to investing. It examines the underlying macroprocesses forming both the economy and ecology. It begins by setting straight a few common misperceptions about evolution to provide a better understanding of the power of evolution's process and its relationship to economic value. It then turns to the process of evolution, which generally speaking involves three processes: selection, adaptation, and survival knowledge (selected information) amplification. These processes occur in physical, biological, economic, and posteconomic domains. The remainder of the chapter discusses how linking ecosystem and economy together in the proper context of evolution's process can help us better understand how the economy functions.

Keywords:   economy, ecology, investing macroprocess, evolution, selection, adaptation, survival knowledge amplification
