Thanks Michael!

I've attached a reply to Michael B's comments.

In general, I'd just like to say that

(1) we have 200 years of proof that capitalism, democracy and diplomacy/defense produce good results in spite of countless flaws in their implementation and the many complexities of the real world.


(2) all pentanomics does is extend the structure of capitalism, democracy and diplomacy/defense to collective resources and future resources -- solving precisely the problems people tend to have with capitalism (social justice and sustainability)

Therefore, I contend that details simply don't matter. e.g. We can be wrong 1000 ways in the implementation of pentanomics (or even our understanding of pentanomics) and yet we can still predict success relative to the current structure of government decision making.

The devil in the details, I argue, has thus been exorcized by the angel in the architecture.?

To be clear, I'm not discounting the academic importance of Michael's comments. Academically, all of his comments are 100% on the mark. The paper needs to be clearer on exactly the points Micheal raises.

I just wish someone would see the forest through the trees here. My dream is that someone sometime will say "wow, a social justice economy backed by 200 years of real-world proof that the model works!"
