Abstract: Conventional economic analyses are based on dogmas that are frequently out of phase with reality. It is thus very difficult to introduce technology, technological innovation and technical progress correctly into all the theoretical constructions derived from the application of these principles. The same applies to the consideration of pollution and the depletion of natural resources. These difficult problems, which bedevil the definition of a sustainable development, find no satisfactory answer in these theoretical considerations. The consideration of Gestalteconomy helps to resolve these difficulties, in opening the door to the entrepreneurial practical management of knowledge.

Keywords: gestalteconomy; economic tenets; non-reversibility; production factor; non-additivity; technical progress; closed economic system; open economic system; equilibrium; deterministic processes; chaotic processes; intangible flows; nuclear knowledge management; sustainable development; economic growth; ecology; environmental protection; entrepreneurship.
