Social Arithmetic is amazingly trivial!
The basic model has only one parameter and three variables.
1. Calculating an Individual Social Index:
ISI = smart*honest*active
(a) if ANY of the multiples/factors is equal to ZERO the whole product is ZERO.
(b) if ANY (or two, or all three) of the multiples/factors is negative the whole product is negative.
2. Calculating the Compound Social Index:
CSI = the sum of all ISI for all individuals living in the Country
If CSI >> 0 the society is on the progressive path.
If CSI ~ 0 the society is in the turmoil, social incoherence, revolution-type situation.
If CSI << 0 the society is on the regressive path, degrades, in a social decline.
In 2016 in America CSI was slightly negative.
In 2018 in America CSI is close to ZERO.
P.S. my shortest post so far; demonstrates the role of mathematics!
