Geomtery has many. Why do Austrians use (or pretend to use) only one?
It should also be noted that not all Austrians even have to accept the action axiom:
Ludwig Lachmann's definition (a man who's views I am growing more sympathetic to):
(around the 4 min mark)
But it ought be noted that I don't think the Megerian-Lachmann line necessarily adopt the action axiom. This needs verification though

Haha, you noticed I edited my post? I forgot to mention you :P
Exactly. We actually understand each other for once.
That deserves a bottle of champagne being cracked open, lol
I've actually started to appreciate your posts. I will need some more maturing before we can have long conversations.
"Humans act" is a synthetic axiom, that is, it's really a pseudonym for a group of axioms, each of which can be understood (though not proven) as following from the fact that humans act.
Also, bear in mind that when we say "only axiom" we implicitly mean the "only economic axiom" since the axioms of logic and so on must be supposed in order to even have a discussion. The law of identity does not follow from "humans act."
Thanks, that's the 1st time I've been called "mature", lol
