Abstract

The main argument in the paper is that the bench mark of perfect competition is grossly inadequate and needs to be modified to recognize the sustainability of nature. Such recognition will lead to significant shifts of axiomatic premises in economics. The revised axioms could comply with premises advanced in religious doctrines and would further curb the excesses in markets that have been the source of various crises.
