The Goal of Modular-Finance...

To gain a better understanding as to the nature of these Systems....Complex Adaptive Systems...

Based on Biology not Physics and thus more complicated than Rocket Science... in Fact Rocket Science is a subset/module of Modular-Finance Theory...

 Complexity and the financial system...The Architecture of Complexity...  Simplicity, Complexity, and Modularity… Stationarity and Valuation.... Complexity Economics and Adaptive Markets... Stationarity and Evolution... Rational Expectations vs Behavioral Finance... Stakeholder Theory vs Shareholder Value... Adaptive Markets vs Efficient markets... Competition Science...

Capitalism without Competition is Not Dynamic Capitalism...

The Architecture of Complexity:

Modularity, Complexity and Simplicity...… 
Simon argued that systems structured in this way possess a basic, competitive simplicity...

Modularity is he design Principle of Complex Adaptive Systems...…. thus the Key/tool to Simplify Compexity…

Modular-Finance is the study of Complex Adaptive Systems, and gets its name from the design principle of these systems.... Modular....and once you move from modern to Modular... you are climbing a different mountain.... Modular Mountain...

In this case the free market isn't working... in this case... we are going to need some regulation...

and make no mistake …. this is not what is taught in business school ,,, and not what your financial Planner was taught... this is an alternative next generation platform....

Modular-Finance...

Modular-Finance works with Systems where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Units/Modules are both independent and interdependent.

The Get these Ideas to "MAIN Street" because of the Lag We need to disintermediate them...That's Why Wall Street/ MW 2.0 did not Work...

From Modern to Modular...

This Shift is already underway.... but most of the public is unaware that this is taking place... Behavioral Economics... replacing Classical Thinking... adaptive Markets vs Efficient Markets... etc...

Our work is to bring this to the Surface...

Modular-Finance 101....

All Models are Wrong... but some are useful...the mistake is in believing it represents reality.... The Map and the Territory...

In Architecture and Design...... Form follows Function....

In Modular-Finance, Form follows Purpose .....Stakeholder Value vs The Mayo Model... Private vs Publicly Held....

From Modern to Modular...

In The ModulrWorld, The Realm of Adaptive Systems & Modular-Finance, we replaced Rational Expectations with Behavioral Finance, Efficient Markets with Adaptive Markets, Shareholder Value with Design Thinking, NeoClassical Economics with Complexity Economics and Physics with Biology.....MFiM...

Modular-Finance Theory

The Theory holds that the future of Finance, Democracy, and Capitalism is a trek up Hill Number Two...

It is not a universal Theory, but a Theory of Theories.... finding new answers will require Innovative and integrating Thinking to solve wicked problems....Failure to understand the Evolving landscape will Lead down dead Ends...ie Wealthfront

Modular-Finance - Radical Transparency and Asymmetrical Information...

The Question is what is behind / Left out / hidden / Modules... Not everyone is working with the same information.... ( Fake News and Mis - information ) Also Exist... And Lo fifth order Thinking

Design Thinking and The Adaptive Market Hypothesis...

Design Thinking is Innovation at the Speed of Thought...

MFiM...

I would rather be approximately right, than precisely wrong...AMH

MFiM...

We know that human behavior, both the rational and the seemingly irrational, is produced by multiple interacting components in the human brain, and now we have a deeper understanding of how those components work.

John Maynard Keynes... When the facts change... I change my Thinking.. What do you do Sir?

Our ability to learn from experience and to adapt one's behavior in light of new circumstances is one of the most powerful traits of Homo sapiens and the main mechanism that can transform us over time and through experience into Homo economicus, at least while the environment is stable.

Understanding the Decision Maker at a Deeper Level...(87)

"Over the last decade, in response to the empirical shortcomings of neoclassical economics and the theoriyical boundaries of prospect theory ( and related approaches ), an intellectual revolution emerged in our understanding of the biological bases of human and animal decision making. It is hard to underestimate the scale of this revolution. In 1992, for example, at the annual; meeting of .....

MFiM... ReThink... Context Matters...

Modular-Finance... A MultiVerse Construct...

"There isn't a single story. The way we understand economics and economies is by learning from lots of sources and thinking about them in a lot of different ways."

"You can't understand how the financial crisis came about without understanding the politics of the relationship between the financial sector and government and the anthropology of the culture of these organizations, or indeed without appreciating yhe history of bubbles and financial crisis."

Hat tip ~ John Kay, British Economist, Economics in the Real World

Homo Sapiens vs Homo economicus

"It took millions of years for man's instincts to develop I will take millions more for them to even vary. It is fashionable to even vary. It is fashionable to talk about changing man. A communicator must be concerned with unchanging man. 

Evolution at the Speed of Thought...

The evolution of ideas, accomplished at the speed of thought, is at the heart of what separates us from other species and allows us to dominate our world.

Modular-Finance... Connecting the Dots... and Combinatory Play...

As Maria Popova puts it... "Inorder for us to truly create and contribute to the world, we have to be able to connect countless dots, to cross pollinate ideas from a wealth of disiplines, to combine and recombine these pieces and build new castles." This understanding of creativity as connection and recombination makes the blank piece of paper not only unhelpful but actually counterproductive. So, ditch it.
