Precis: This site is about theoretical economics and claims that AXEC's objective-structural-systemic-macro axiom set is superior to conventional formal starting points of economic analysis. This claim is open to scrutiny according to the criteria of formal and material consistency. One is not obligated to apply the structural axiom set provided one possesses already the correct formal foundations, which is improbable given the unacceptable state of conventional economics. The selection or acceptance of axioms is a matter of individual scientific serendipity, freedom, and responsibility, that is, by no means arbitrary. The macro- axiomatic variables are measurable and the logical implications of the axiom set are testable in principle. Should an independent test lead to the refutation of one of the AXEC theorems notice will be given here. No such test is known to AXEC as of December 2022. AXEC anticipates the corroboration of the macro-axiom set from independent testing. In view of all relevant circumstances, there is good reason to apply the macro-axiom set as clearly defined and the most promising analytical starting point of economic research. As far as one can see, AXEC is the sole economic Paradigm that embodies a consistent profit theory, which in turn is the precondition for the scientific understanding of the market economy.
Original Research: The substitution of behavioral axioms by structural-systemic axioms constitutes a Paradigm Shift. Paradigms are incommensurable. The shift implies that AXEC refuses conventional approaches because of their methodological defects. Empirical research that consists mainly of data collection and state-of-the-art statistical analysis is not affected by the Paradigm Shift; only the interpretation of results may be affected. AXEC starts anew, it does not join any conventional approach/school in the attempt to refine or correct the incorrigible. By its very nature, original research is found at first in one place only; it is, for instance, excluded from Wikipedia. From AXEC's original research follows that the entry Profit in Wikipedia, and probably in other encyclopedias and similar publications, is unacceptable according to the criteria of logical and material consistency, which are the ultimate scientific criteria (see Profit and Essentials and Textbooks in AXECwiki). According to Wikipedia and others, the corpus of conventional economic literature is a reliable source, according to AXEC's original research, it is not (see Profit). It is the correct axiomatic foundation that makes an approach reliable in the first place. All other criteria are secondary and potentially misleading. Original research returns to the basics and is almost inevitably antithetical to the common sense of the day. However, critique or refutation is not an end in itself. The constructive originality of the structural-systemic axiom set consists of formal and material consistency.
Focus: AXEC does not enter into discussions other than formal and material consistency, nor about what other economists might have really meant but have not expressed clearly, nor about philosophical, political, sociological, psychological, or other aspects of the economy, nor about individual merit/demerit of economists past and present. The focus is on how the actual economy — and in particular the profit mechanism — works. The existence of other aspects is, of course, not denied, they are excluded for methodological reasons. There is no hindrance to reintegrating them once the consistent economic theory is established.
Update: AXEC will take notice of serious attempts to logically or empirically refute the systemic axioms/theorems and will make, if necessary, corrections/ clarifications/rebuttals in the working papers and on this site. No serious attempt is known to AXEC as of December 2022.

The effective solution of economic problems and the attainment of worthwhile goals presupposes the correct economic theory, which in turn presupposes the correct axiom set, which becomes the ultimate source of accountable advice.
