Abstract: Economics, as much as critical realism, is part of Enlargement based, Eurocentred, materialist ideology that has sanctioned the practices that have brought the (social and ecological) world to the near extinction in the twentieth century. It is time that the victims of this ideology: women, minorities, tribals, workers, etc. opted out of this crippling mind set and developed ideas and practices of their own contra the pretensions of ?science?and corporatism (whether capitalist or socialist) is neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition for human emancipation.
