Default Wealth Inequality Is Even Worse in Reputation Economies

Cory Doctorow: Wealth Inequality Is Even Worse in Reputation Economies

Quote:
The characters in the novel generally love Whuffie, even though it’s destroying them.
Is it just me, or does Cory Doctorow always look pissed?

Meritocracy is a tautology, of course. There’s no objective measure of ‘‘merit’’ so there’s no way to know whether your society is meritocratic or not
this happens in central planned economies and in corporate gangster capitalism where the government pick winners and losers by arbitrary measures

in free market capitalism being rich is a question of satisfy other people needs, more than half of the people in the forbes 500 where not in the forbes 500 when they were born, you sucker jealous twat.

Smartlibertarian acts all sympathetic when something bad happens as a result of his philosophy, but, really, he just doesn't give a fuck.

There is no other kind of capitalism.
