You are sidestepping the issue here. All successful sciences have to make
use of formalisations. For our analysis of inputs and outputs of economic
activities we need an N-sector model, and the three department model is
the smallest possible one which allows us to see how means of production,
workers' and capitalists' consumption are produced.
