On Economics and Enterprise Architecture

How economics and architectures interact

About the Book

This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores how economics and enterprise architectures interrelate with each other, in business, in society, and with the wider world.

This book includes about 40 posts and 40 images from the weblog. These posts are split into six groups:

- Economics and Architecture: On Architectures - shows how architecture outlines key flaws in economics, and what it can do to help address them.

- Economics and Architecture: Business - illustrates how economics-level issues can impact everyday business.

- Economics and Architecture: Money - assesses how perspectives on money, price and value can both introduce useful ideas or constrain new possibilities.

- Economics and Architecture: Society - uses architectures-methods to explore effects of current economics at whole-of-society levels.

- Economics and Architecture: Futures - reviews economics implications highlighted by futures-analysis.

- Economics and Architecture: Beyond Money - explores an architecture-based thought-experiment on a form of economics that does not need money to function.
