NYT = centrally-planned knowledge economy
Applying a value-seeking model to information at population scale, means our collective knowledge will unstoppably improve, instead of being replaced by one fragile certainty after another.
Look at it this way:
In the same way capitalism functions by constantly looking for ways to improve upon the existing industry landscape, seeking undervalued information constantly improves upon the existing information landscape.
The certainty-industrial complex is “central planning for public knowledge.”
If you don’t expect a centrally-planned economy to create the most value, you shouldn’t expect a centrally-planned information economy to create the most information value either.
