Capital flow, the moving and swelling and shifting of value, is an emergent property of the interaction between humans and money. Wherever we find money, we find dynamics and properties of capital flow, or rather, how money moves.

Positive feedback loops are highly destabilizing and they can occur all over the universe at almost every scale of existence. They can be short-term or long-term, but none are ever permanent due … Continue reading Positive Feedback Loops

If … Continue reading Ain’t Nobody Misbehaving
