Correlation of Adam Smith


(The “invisible hand”)

Here we demonstrate how the division of labor, product of specialization, had influenced in increasing wealth and occupation of work hand. That is to say, we will give scientific support to the intuitive present in the “invisible hand” from Adam Smith, what it looks like guide the individual action that in profit of all human been. Since the new Subjective and Solidarity Economic Theory (SSET) we will show basis and requirement (freedom) of such intuition.

Simple correlation of Adam Smith

Is the one that emerge from positively correlates the highest total production (qt) that arises by the specialization of each individual according to their competitive advantages, in their exchanges of wealth (qi). Specialization allows each individual to produce (qx), over their own needs (qx), which is an incentive to exchange it for other manifestation of wealth (qy) generated by those who are specialized in them (qy). That to say, increasing free exchange (qi) leads to an increasing in total wealth (qt), [1] which implies the positive correlation:

Simple correlation of Adam Smith

qi qt

Wide correlation of Adam Smith

Since the division of labor lies behind the exchange, we also find positive correlation between exchanges and work
(w): ↑qi ↑ wt.

Them we can positively correlate the three economics variables:

Wide correlation of Adam Smith

qi qt wt

It remains only to clarify that the wide correlation of Adam Smith is fulfilled under the rule of the natural economic laws ofdecreasing marginal utility of the wealth and relative marginal utility of the exchange. Which means to say that: the “invisible hand” of Adam Smith operates under a regime of free manifestation of human values.

In future works we will show how violate of natural economic laws attempt against threaten the Efficient and Equitable Economic Evolution (E4).
