Looks like someone invented picoeconomics. Based on the name alone, it sounds like a very nice idea, sort of like ramen profitability only better. At least one of the complaints I have with Economics As We Know It is lack of scalability. In Earth’s high rent district (a.k.a. the “first world”) there’s a level of income below which survival is not feasible. On a little further reading, it seems the idea behind picoeconomics is not scalability of economic activity, but of economic actors:
Where microeconomics is used to describe the negotiation for resources between individuals, picoeconomics (or micro-micro-economics) describes a similar process but within an individual himself, helping define different aspects of his [sic] behaviour.
This may have implications for thick individualism. According to Robert Vienneau:
If a community cannot have group rights and cannot have an unique ordering of choices2, how can an individual have such rights when he may be just as divided in mind as a community?
