Equilibrium/Economy/HirschmanVsTradition/Hirschman: A drop in performance is an imbalance phenomenon. Hirschman leaves no doubt about how critical he is of the equilibrium thinking of the economic mainstream and also of the ideal image of so-called perfect competition - he almost frames this part of his introduction with appropriate text passages to emphasize this (1). He is therefore aware that the starting point of his investigation, the idea of the drop in performance itself, is basically a "heretical" thought from the point of view of the economic mainstream.
