Altruistic Economics = Cooperation
multiple-value system of
self-evaluation means that
RB & RS
are stated publicly.
Since P is unused, there is no need for buyer and seller to agree a price,
ensuring less arguing and fairer outcomes than capitalism, especially if buyer and seller have
unequal bargaining power. Explicit statement of
RB & RS
gives it greater efficiency than
single-valued scoring systems.
Capitalist Economics = Competition
Price is all important, since
individuals hide their real evaluations
(RB & RS).
RS+S =P = RB-B
Systemic conflict arises because Price (P)
divides the benefits of the transactions. This casts buyer and seller
in the roles of competitors, since they benefit from moving P
in opposite directions. The only communication of value transferred in the transaction
is P, which is an poor reflection of the real value difference; the only inference that can
certainly be made is that P lies somewhere between
RB and RS.
