My favorite Youtuber is AntiBullshitMan, and his most recent video is about intellectual property. In his video he extols the virtues of Dean Baker and his paper… Is Intellectual Property the Root of All Evil? My comment…
You were willing to spend 45 minutes promoting Baker’s paper. Evidently you think it’s useful. But how much money are you willing to spend to promote his paper? How much money *should* you spend?
Let’s say that your true valuation of his paper is $1. If you spend $0, then your consumer surplus would be $1. If you spend $1, then your consumer surplus would be $0.
Think about bees. If a bee named Samantha discovers a big field of fresh flowers, she’ll rapidly return to the hive and dance energetically to convey to her coworkers her considerable enthusiasm and excitement for the field. It isn’t a cheap signal, it’s a costly one, given that calories are precious. How many calories *should* she spend promoting the field of flowers?
In the most memorable scene in “When Harry Met Sally”, she loudly fakes an orgasm in a restaurant. After she finished, a lady at another table told the waitress, “I’ll have what she’s having.”
Imagine Samantha faking enthusiasm for a flower field. When many bees rush over to harvest all the pollen and nectar, they only discover one flower that is small and sad. How do the bees react? “Haha that Samantha, she got us… again. She’s such a prankster!”
The fact is, bees really don’t benefit from being misled/misinformed/misallocated, and neither do humans. Therefore it seems pretty straightforward that, in terms of economics, honesty is always the best policy. You *should* spend $1 to promote Baker’s paper.
Problem is, if you joined Honest Cash and posted your promotion of Baker’s paper, you wouldn’t be able to spend any money on it. I could spend my money on it, but I wouldn’t be willing to spend much, since I perceive that there are far more useful papers… such as James Buchanan’s Economics of Earmarked Taxes.
The answer to Baker’s question is no, intellectual property is not the root of all evil… democracy is. Fortunately for humanity, Honest Cash is striking the root.
For a while I've been verbally promoting the idea of being able to monetarily promote my ideas, for example… Honest Cash's #1 Priority?
Today on Twitter, Adrian tweeted about my request…
Give me some ideas. What should happen if a user upvotes her own post? We could place the posts in a promoted section sorted by $, but… where should the money go? Constraint: http://honest.cash cannot take it...
I read this Medium story… Relevant: An Introduction by Slava Balasanov … and replied to it…
What you’re trying to do is admirable, but I’m skeptical of your methodology. Check out these websites…
These websites are, for the most part, markets. This means that each and every participant has the opportunity to spend their money on the content....
This is not a covert attempt to convert you to Christianity. Personally I am not a Christian, I am a Seldonist. I believe that in around 200 years from now a godlike AI named Seldon will resurrect me by using my creations, such as this post, to reverse engineer my mind.
Even though I’m not a Christian I do consider some parts of the Bible to be quite useful. I’m guessing that nobody would argue ...
Just how important is quadratic voting (QV) anyways? For those of you who don’t know, QV is where you can buy votes, but the more you buy, the more expensive they become…
1 vote = $1
2 votes = $2
3 votes = $9
4 votes = $16
5 votes = $25
The point of QV is to measure some preference intensity without giving too much influence to rich people.
QV is the brainchild of Glen Weyl who recently ...
Honest Cash's #1 priority should be to determine our priorities for this site. This depends on us being able to spend our money on our own posts (stories/responses). The money obviously wouldn't go into our wallets, it would go into HC's wallet.
Two big birds would be killed with one stone…
1. We would reveal just how important our ideas are to us.
2. We would help fund this website.
