Hourglass Socioeconomics, Principles and Fundamentals, lays the framework of a “What If” scenario of what would need to take place in a social economic distribution system to gain and maintain autonomy from external influence. If a distribution system is constantly pulled toward the central goal of optimal balance, value of wealth in equity and equality will be manageably controllable. The underlying purpose is the search for equilibrium.

A mathematical approach is applied to understand economic systems in place today and the faults in their structural design and integrity. Models are used as visual illustrations to show how value in wealth and control move throughout the distribution within the hierarchical class structures as input is transformed to output. Analogies in other sciences and systems act to explain some of these concepts in simpler terms.
