- Holistic Mathematics leads to three distinctive scientific paradigms
which provide the framework for a full understanding of Economics. These
are:

- The "real" quantitative paradigm for the static analysis of partial systems (Analytical Economics).
- The "imaginary" qualitative paradigm for the dynamic integration of holistic systems (Holistic Economics).
- The "complex" interactive paradigm which is based on the integration of both quantitative and qualitative aspects (Comprehensive Economics).

- The conventional scientific approach - as used in Economics - is based
on a limited reading of just one paradigm (i.e. the "real" analytical paradigm).
This leads in turn to a highly reduced interpretation of key economic concepts.

- The purpose of this discussion is to illustrate how such concepts can
be redefined dynamically in qualitative holistic terms. Also the implications
of this for both the analytical and comprehensive approaches is investigated.

The following three contributions to the Wilber Forum (on the World
of Ken Wilber web-site) represent a brief introduction to this topic.
