JACOB’s LADDER: Holotropic Economy

Abstract

Economic activity and reflection should be Holotropic, that is aiming at unity, instead of overspecialized approaches. A cosmic awareness is needed, along a radical revision and reformulation of human nature and of reality. In the modern era, the Hylotropic, matter oriented movement prevailed, imposing a coarser materiality and a marked spiritual devolution. This is how it reached this form of economy, based on selfishness, mercantilism and highly pecuniary greedy interest, a highly financialized economy and its dominance (econocracy) over the other social disciplines, over the behaviour and human life in general. It seems we are at the end of such a period and a new holotropic era is to come.

Entrepreneurial Attitudes in a Post-Communist Transitional Rural Economy: The Case of Moldova

Entrepreneurial Attitudes in a Post-Communist Transitional Rural Economy: The Case of Moldova

A sample survey of small and medium-sized farms in Moldova is used to examine the prevalence of different aspects of an "entrepreneurial outlook" in a post-communist transitional economy. Within the range of less than 1 to 100 hectare farms, the most pronounced differences are that operators of larger farms have greater "technical knowledge" of different aspects of high value agricultural production and sales as well as having a greater willingness to deal with "uncertainty and debt."
