All business microeconomics decision processes focus on Value, but along with that is the equal focus on the Cost to produce that Value. Ergodic processes are stochastic processes with a statistical property that can be deduced from a single, sufficiently long, random sample of the underlying process. Non-Ergodic processes don't possess this property. Software development is a non-ergodic process. A Darwinian evolution process is non-ergodic.
