    It is real because we all believe it. The video game is a good example, we can shut it down and all your items are gone. Same with economy.

      It’s real because we practice it. If we stopped commerce that doesn’t disprove the existence of the economy, it just ends one existing economy.

      If we all stopped talking it wouldn’t prove the spoke word is a myth.

        To come back to the meme: it implies that while the sun is real, the Christianity isn’t. But it is as long as it’s practiced, same with economy

          Christianity as a practiced religion is real. The figures in Christianity which Christians worship are not, at least we have no hard evidence of them being real.

          It doesn’t imply that Christianity isn’t real, but rather it’s the focus of their worship that doesn’t exist.

      I mean a lot of concepts in economics are descriptive, they note phenomenon that just happen when humans engage in trade or resource allocation amongst each other.

      It’s basically the three body problem but with sharing according to the maximum satisfaction of want and need instead of gravitational fields.
