Class 5: The Value of Creativity
Join us LIVE on Saturday, January 11 at 2pm eastern. SPEAKER: Jason Ross — LaRouche’s central discovery in economics addressed the connection between scientific discoveries and the resulting improvements in the productive powers of labor. This relationship is not purely scalar, and demands a framework that can directly incorporate changes in quality, not merely of quantity. He explained that the work of Bernhard Riemann was key to opening the doors to this framework, and thus named his economic approach the LaRouche-Riemann method. In this class, we will discuss Riemann’s treatment of physical space as well as his application of analysis situs to a domain of mathematics that brings out the qualitative nature of economic growth.
