In The Social Economy of Freedom , noted financial analyst Pascal Blanque discusses the concept of economic freedom and analyzes the theoretical and practical issues involved in its attainment. To fully explore the meaning of economic freedom, Blanque creates a Subject that can reason and act in a structured financial environment. The Subject is a personification of the theory of homo economicus, a general concept that humans are narrowly self-interested and motivated by their personal goals, as opposed to wanting to cooperate for the greater good. Blanque turns his Subject loose in a virtual economic world filled with image-objects of varying value and observes as it becomes familiar with those objects, learns their worth in the financial market, and attempts to obtain them. Many factors come into play in this striving for personal gain, including the presence of other self-interested actors who can affect the Subjects behavior through competition, conflict, and consensus.
