Rebeccas has autism. Like any other girl her age Rebecca cares about her appearance. Rebecca has her own system. She dresses according to the days of the week. Every day has a specific color. Monday is green, Tuesday is purple and so forth. Rebecca’s system does not include any other people than Rebecca. It is anti-social. Rebecca’s system is rational to Rebecca.

Economic systems are rational, but the rationality is socially or humanly determined. Economic systems are subject to humans, but at the same time humans subject themselves to economic systems. They dependent on us to restore them through our ways of thinking, acting and organizing. Economy is immanent and all-embracing. There is no outside the economy.

In Rebecca's System three differently positioned economists attempt to address a possible link between economic systems and Rebecca’s personal system – between economy and autism.
