Discourse is a set of events that follow each other. A.k.a. performance in the ECSA grammar. Existing economic space uses only “price” (the monetary value) as the principle which organizes the connections between economic discourses (performances; production discourses). The ECSA proposal is that we can do discourse regimentation also by using different values, as long as they can be made quantitative (eye balls, likes, etc. are the first approximations to this direction). Grammar is the access to a system that defines what these parameters of individual events are while still allowing them to be also uniquely identified (individual events become like proper names with a memory). The ECSA economic grammar is a restricted discourse grammar. Grammar is about making discourses liquid (exchangeable, relatable, alive), it is the ability to go beyond one simple transaction. Liquidity grows out of a shared grammar.
