Neuroscience backs up the Buddhist belief  that “the self” isn’t constant, but ever-changing

Neuroscience backs up the Buddhist belief  that “the self” isn’t constant, but ever-changing | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
While you may not remember life as a toddler, you most likely believe that your selfhood then—your essential being—was intrinsically the same as it is today. Buddhists, though, suggest that this is just an illusion—a philosophy that's increasingly supported by scientific research. “Buddhists argue that nothing is constant, everything changes through time, you hav

Cryptosecession and the limits of taxation

Cryptosecession and the limits of taxation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
We often hear about how federalism or 'Tiebout' sorting can limit government over-taxation. Taking this one step further some argue that the threat of secession or 'internal exit' has the same effect. And many steps further is the emerging phenomenon of 'cryptosecession.' Cryptosecession is the use of cryptographic and blockchain-based technologies (e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitnation) to economically secede from…

“There is nothing more difficult to plan, nor more dangerous to manage, than the creation of a new system. For the creator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old system and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new one.”

Failed Economics: Tyranny of Mathematics and Enslaved by the Wrong Theory - Evonomics

Failed Economics: Tyranny of Mathematics and Enslaved by the Wrong Theory - Evonomics | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

According to the new school, neoclassical economic theory is based on a false conception of human nature and must be replaced with a more realistic conception. As Thaler and Sunstein put it in Nudge, economic theory and policy needs to be based on “Humans”, not “Econs.” I cheered when I first read these lines and looked forward to learning about the new improved conception of human nature, which presumably would be informed by evolutionary theory. I was disappointed. My colleagues such as Herb, Sam, and Ernst confirmed my own impression: They appreciated the relevance of evolution but were a tiny minority among behavioral and experimental economists, who in turn were a tiny minority among neoclassical economists. Modern evolutionary theory was having virtually no impact on currently economic theory and policy.

Occupy Black Lives: Notes on Two Movements

Occupy Black Lives: Notes on Two Movements | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

1. The most important thing we learned from the constructive failure of Occupy Wall Street is that social movements are born when two things happen. One, when there is a new tactic that arises that unlocks the people’s collective hope and imagination. And two, when a new kind of mood spreads throughout society. For example, during the Arab Spring, a Tunisian fruit seller set himself on fire, triggering a mood of fearlessness that spread all over the world. People were no longer afraid of the authorities or of losing their jobs and rushed into the streets to protest. And at the same time, with Occupy Wall Street, we gave the people a new tactic which was the combination of the acampadas with the Tahrir Uprising: let’s go into the financial districts and set up consensus-based assemblies. The combination of these two ingredients is the formula for social movement creation.

The economics of blockchain at Public Choice conference

The economics of blockchain at Public Choice conference | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
The blockchain is more than an information technology—it's an institutional technology. This means that institutional economics, as well as public choice and constitutional political economy, should provide the toolkit for 'blockchain studies'. That's the argument I'll make at the 2016 Public Choice Society conference this week, where I'll be presenting some of the latest research from the Melbourne…
