Recent Thoughts

My recent keyword is "social technology." It is a collection of useful knowledge and techniques which extend from social institutions to business models. If one tries to develop a social technique, human-sized tasks and problems come to be the object of social sciences in opposition to macroeconomics. Social experiments may become a powerful tool for social sciences and it may provide a new mode of social research. Viewed from this angle, we can observe already many various trials in different fields to develop and experiment social techniques.
