The article discusses the necessary interdependence of humanity, intelligence and economics. It addresses the current problem of inflation and economic crisis, and suggests that this problem cannot be resolved by traditional means but by changing the structure and organization of the economy and society. It proposes adopting the social and economic strategy of full employment and price stability to solve the crisis and provides a framework on how the strategy can be implemented by the government. It concludes that economic policies are not merely a matter of implementing solutions but must be framed with consideration to history, traditions and ideas prevalent in the community.
