ENDING THE EDUCATION DEBATE (STEM=SCIENCE vs ELSE RELIGION)
Math -> Science -> Tech -> Engineering + Behavioral Econ + Econ > Law (Decidability)
Science is just Law – Law Produces Decidability Across the Spectrum
1) Mathematics (measurements, facts)
2) Operational language (causes, first causes)
3) Repeatable Results (evidence)
4) Due diligence (warranty) – against ignorance-error, bias-wishful thinking, loading-framing, suggestion-obscurantism, fictionalism-deceit.
The Prediction Fallacy: theories must either predict deliberately constructed test data OR explain randomly (organically) discovered evidentiary data. Predictability decreases with causal dimensions.
ie: (physical processes -> behavioral processes -> cognitive processes)
However, explanatory power can be constructed from measurements regardless of the dimensions of causality. General rules of behavior manifest in general rules in economics, just as general rules of gas molecules manifest in general rules of gasses.
