Intelligence studies as an alternative approach to the study of economics
Keywords:Competitive advantage, Economics, Intelligence Studies, Methodenstreit
AbstractThe study of economics, but even business and management today, are too far removed from thereality they are trying to describe. To study economics has instead ironically become a guaranteed waynot to understand much about real economics; for example, how money is created and is distributedthrough private banks or how the gold market works. Instead scholars know econometrics, or they adhereto some group with a favorite journal. As we know, far earlier than Adam Smith, for example with MarcoPolo, at the heart of economics lies the notion of competitive advantage. In the thick books I am siftingthrough that notion is never lost. It’s all about understanding markets to find an opportunity or a niche.
