We are business educators. We try to turn business into physics, finding the constants and the components of natural philosophy therein. Go through the great debate by Thales, Heraclitus and Pythagoras, and the redesign just before the end of the 18th century when everything was studied under natural philosophy, and think deeper, you could identify a unifier of all knowledge. Yes, LOGIC is the foundation, and logic is philosophy. But what is logic? Pythagoras postulated “numbers”.
The numbers of nations are the business of nations. The numbers in markets are the opportunities in markets. You call them data – that raw material of mathematics, the beautiful science of numbers.
Like a little boy helping my grandmother sell her yams in Oriendu Market Ovim, Abia state, I understood the physics in her business: all yams must be sold before 2pm as merchants from big cities always close around 2pm, to have time for their journey back home.
If you miss that timeframe, you could be forced to take your produce home unsold. But you dare not, because that was your school fees!
