I suggest that Gödel’s incompleteness theorem implies that the theoretical component of praxeology necessarily rests on unprovable axioms, and I give examples of the inconsistent conclusions when accepting certain praxeological axioms as universally and absolutely true. I then propose systems theory as a framework for investigation of the truth value of these axioms and suggest literary methods as essential in their formulation. Finally, I look at constitutional law as an example of the practical applications of normative economic-law theory and the importance of sound first principles.</p>}, number={1}, journal={REVISTA PROCESOS DE MERCADO}, author={Dusseljee, Lev}, year={2022}, month={Aug.}, pages={177–248} }
