Communism 2.0
Matthew Kwan

It’s easy to imagine this starting as a smaller-scale intentional community that grows if it’s successful, so that no revolution is necessary!

It also leads to some super interesting questions about the algorithm itself. Another con of capitalism is that feedback loops lead to boom and bust cycles, market crashes, etc. What feedback loops would this system lead to? Is it possible to incorporate control theory to make it more stable?

If we only care about approximating the solution, is there some kind of heuristic that can be decentralized to the level of individual participants? It would be awesome to avoid the problems of a centralized and powerful planning organization/computer by off-loading the work to some redefined social rules! … Or maybe that’s just regulated capitalism :-/
