The research on the structure of macroeconomic metamodels began in 1976 and included the development of the archetypes, 10-year scenarios and their validation for three periods until the structures were validated. The goal was to find the drivers of economic growth and sustainability. It concluded when the adaptive economic metamodel of China was confirmed.

It included the following countries:

Argentina • Australia • Brazil • China • Colombia • Czech Republic • France • Germany • India • Iran • Iraq • Italy • Japan • Mexico • Netherlands • New Zealand • Poland • Russia • Saudi Arabia • Slovakia • South Africa • Spain • Sweden • Switzerland • Ukraine • United Arab Emirates • United Kingdom • United States • Uruguay • Venezuela.

Adaptive economy is a superior stage of economic behavior that can be managed by cultures that have a strong cultural nucleus defined by their archetypes. Adaptive economy is a stage where the economic approach is segmented, integrating statism, dirigisme, capitalism and neo-capitalism. Its implicit purpose is empowering the culture and ensuring sustainability.

Neo-capitalism is the highest level that can be achieved when developing economic democracy, which is the active function of democracy. It can be said that neo-capitalism is the natural consequence of the development of democracy because it is the institutionalized way in which economic democracy can evolve. However, its existence was only possible after the economic field replaced the military field as the main driver for the expansion power of cultures.

When a country enters a democratic model, the social democracy is given by the democratic behaviors admitted in its archetype and established in its constitution. It is the starting point of democracy. However, the first step to introduce democracy is defining a democratic economic model that promotes both enterprising and entrepreneurial activities with the necessary legislation to foster growth.
