The rationale of Econographicology revolves around the efficacy of graphs as the most effective analytical tool for visualization of any economic phenomena. The main motivation behind the creation of Econographicology is to evaluate graphs evolved so far in economics and to develop new types of graphs to facilitate the study of economics, as well as finance and business. Thereby, the mission of Econographicology is to offer academics, researchers and policy maker’s alternative analytical tool in the research and teaching-learning process of economics, Finance and business. The theoretical framework of Econographicology draws very much on graphs designs: soft graphs design and hard graphs design. In addition, the research involved is supported by three types of graphs: analytical graphs, descriptive graphs and graphs simulations. At the inception of Econographicology, the following new types of graphs and Cartesian Spaces are presented: Pyramid Cartesian Space (PG), Diamond Cartesian Space (DG),Multi-Dimensional Cartesian Space (MD), Infinity Cartesian Space (I-Cartesian Space) and Multi-functional Cartesian Space (MF). These Cartesian Spaces are constructed based on the traditional 3-Dimensional space concept, but they represent 4-D, 5-D, 8-D, 9-D and Infinity-Dimension. The multiple-dimensional representations are to facilitate easyunderstanding of economic phenomena from a general view.
