Distributed networks don’t always have the benefit of overarching regulatory systems or centralised algorithms to guide our interactions. But instead, they rely on underlying reputations so that people can seek each other out and engage in whole new ways.
In the late 1930’s, principles of Distributed economics were expounded upon by Gandhian economists such as J. C. Kumarappa and furthered by E. F Schumacher. The crux of their work was this - Reputation, when built as an economy can foster fascinating new P2P interactions.
