Thanks for the link ska invita . it's not a term that I've heard before. It seems to be grounded in the premise that analysis of the problem can lead to a manufactured solution. It reminds me of this quote from Marx... Mankind thus inevitably sets itself only such tasks as it is able to solve, since closer examination will always show that the problem itself arises only when the material conditions for its solution are already present or at least in the course of formation. There's certainly a problem with our debt based capitalism system, but I'm not convinced that the 'material conditions for its solution' are available to us.
