Introduction to Version 2.718

The reader of RTM 1.0 and 2.0 with some mathematical knowledge on exponential functions have noticed that the version numbering tends toward the number “e”.

This 2.718 version of the RTM brings an improvement on the form and on the signification of demonstrations without changing the meaning nor the quantitative result. This improvement brings a better theoretical definition that can make sense by analogy with other domains than economy registering a deep link with space-time analysis in its temporal and quantitative dimensions.

Most importantly, the limited life span of the observed objects and of the observers appears to us as a fundamental element which is not taken into account sufficiently not only in economy but also in many other areas of analysis.

This improvement on the theoretical part leads also to some general remarks on the form.

The historical part is also augmented with the introduction in the storyline of a lineage of economic thinkers consisting of John Locke, Thomas Paine, Clifford Hugh Douglas and Yoland Bresson.

“Those who have quitted the world, and those who have not yet arrived at it, are as remote from each other as the utmost stretch of mortal imagination can conceive.

Quelle règle ou quel principe peut-on poser pour que de deux êtres imaginaires dont l’un a cessé d’être et l’autre n’existe pas encore, et qui ne peuvent jamais se rencontrer dans ce monde, l’un soit autorisé à maîtriser l’autre jusqu’à la consommation des siècles ? »

― “The Rights of Man” 1791 Thomas Paine (1737 – 1809)
