i was only suggesting you read a wiki entry actually
I read the intro grafs but I don't see what's relevant

That an economist from the 40s thinks market relations were invented by capitalism? My opinion is contemporary economic markets are just formalizations of game theoretic dynamics that are inherent in natural selection, i.e. the market wasn't even invented by humans

(Reciprocity is basically just a market; indeed, I'd specify that it's a market with temporal delay between exchanges, but this is also true of capitalist economies; the temporal delay is how most economic fraud, e.g. the long-firm, works)

But even if so, what's this have to do with economic growth and geopolitical conflict?

By which I mean, sure, countries with united governance can top-down regulate their populations, in accord with nice moralistic ideals about how things "should" be

But until we have an effective world government with that kind of power, expecting costly coordination between nations, instead of defection and competition, is a pipe dream

Beast of Burden
Liberals have always longed for world government, specifically one that thinks like they do, does things they like and can never be removed.

I saw that stuff about Tom Harwood getting heckled at the anti-lockdown protest during his show, but that's it.
