Cognitive Capitalism seems to be a protected page.

In the Books to Read section, I would like include Science And Sanity---An introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics by Alfred Korzybski.

On second thought, this title does not actually fit the category. The nearest available place it fits seems to be the Books section of the Science Domain. So, I am putting it there. Hope that is all right.

I'm asking Franco Iacomella to solve this,

Done, page no longer unprotected, thanks Franco. --MIchel Bauwens 13:15, 9 September 2011 (UTC)


This interpretation stresses that we are in a third phase of capitalism, where the accumulation is centered on immaterial assets.

Capitalism as an economic system has radically changed; but, as a social system, its institutions have not kept up with changes created by the scientific/industrial revolution. This is argued by Alfred Korzybski in Manhood of Humanity, and also, by Stuart Chase in The Economics of Abundance.

For example, it is not sufficiently appreciated by investigators---so it seems to me---that sufficient buying power can not be distributed through the ever narrowing channel of employment. One consequence is that "Says Law" can not operate. This lies at the root of capitalism's chronic disease: the "stop/go" pattern of recessions (called, in less sophisticated times, "gluts"). This is fully explored in the Two Factor Theory also known as Binary Economics by | Louis O. Kelso et al.

Just in case, I'm looking for someone who can explain the differences between binary economics, social credit and distributism .... I agree with your remark above.

Thanks. That would be a useful addition to the knowledge base. To me it seems that they are slightly different solution approaches to one basic problem, although Distributism seems to draw its inspiration directly from religious principles. I would also add the economic model based on the work of Henry George currently labelled as Geonomics
