Abstract

Misbegotten, misnamed, antisocial homo oeconomicus is nowcontrasted with the more human personae of homo oeconomicushonorabilis, the open Semieconomic Manof Pantaleoni and Marshall, the still arcane homo oeconomicushumanus of Nitsch and Malina, and most recently the positivisticneo homo socioeconomicus of Etzioni et al., whichin turn harks back to Smiths Theory of 175990.Showing the essential identity of modern economics and Aristotles oikonomik, and recognising the ozone layer as preeminentamong oncefree but now very scarce resources chrmatathat have to be utilised efficiently and administered prudently, theauthor joins forces with Herman Daly et al. in proposing anAristotelianBiblical homo oeconomus as a GoodSteward in the spirit of Frigerios LEconomo Prudente1629 and qualitative improvement over the being who has masqueraded ashomo oeconomicus. Uniting this prudent conservator and caretakerof our natural endowment with Homo Faber, theSubjectcreator of Social Economy of an earlier work yields theantithesis of the veritable homo oeconomicus impudens ofClassicalNeoclassical infamy.
