I just can't understand what the underlined phrase conveys. Would you pleas help me to find out the meaning of the phrase?
As if by magic, an economic regulation system, in other words a set of mechanisms people implement in order to organize the exchange process such as the market, becomes as natural as our fictional character, and therefore also as
mythological, that is to say as deprived of history as economic man.
Thanks a lot.
