I will leave behind the assumption that empirical economics can capture anything representative of human action. The static data has no relevance to human action – it does not represent it and it cannot predict it. This is why I say that empirical economics is wholly dependent upon ego-driven interpretation and then ego-driven intervention.
Instead I will suggest that the subjective nature of humans is expressed as human action and it is voluntarily expressed within a market process (even if the action pertains to things that are ideal) that is all a part of the infinitely intricate social cooperation latticework. There is nothing manmade that can ever even minutely substitute for this, and better yet, there is no need since the process is divinely ordained to serve mankind according to the needs and maturity of humankind.
