I think I agree, if I understand correctly. The existence (and wild success) of centralized platforms I think reflects a combination of "natural" market/consumer preferences, and of "artificial" obstructions or modifications of the market (via stuff like lobbying, cartels, etc).the question about how easy it is to hide wealth
Totally agree here too. I really think it just depends on the given case.but there are technical reasons to favour centralisation as well. to use an example from software development, a distributed architecture is not always superior to a monolithic one. often it's inferior.
Definitely a reaction to the popularity of Keynesian economics, as well as Marxism. But to answer your question, no, there's not really anything new in neoliberalism that wasn't in classic liberalism. Private property, free markets, lassez-faire, political equality (i.e. equality before the law, rather than social equality). Some of the application of the ideas is different bc the 2nd of the 20th C into the 21st was not/is not the same world as the 19th C heyday of classic liberalism, but the ideas themselves haven't changed.Maybe what's "neo" about it is that it is informed by and a reaction to embedded liberalism and the sort of welfare economics associated with Keynes? I would suspect this neo stage would be more dialectically advanced than classical liberal economics, but again I don't know enough to be sure, and I may be giving the neoliberals too much credit here.
Do you know of Glen Weyl and/or RadicalxChange? I'm still early in my exploration of this whole area, but it essentially seems like a financially and technologically savvy communitarianism.None of this has anything to do directly w/crypto, DAOs, or etc tho, beyond I guess crypto tech bros stereotypically tending libertarian, which is a cousin of neoliberalism but with some important differences
So you just keep the more sensitive data in the private database? You get into zero knowledge proofs at all?our current plan is to run a decentralized database which mirrors enough public info from our private database that anyone can make their own site front-end, but not enough to, yknow, cause trouble with user doxxing
Yeah thats exactly why the purists denounce custodial wallets. They're just way more convenient, as far as most people are concerned.Cool
