A responsibility assignment matrix[1] (RAM), also known as RACI matrix[2] (/ˈreɪsi/) or linear responsibility chart[3] (LRC), describes the participation by various roles in completing tasks or deliverables for a project or business process. RACI is an acronym derived from the four key responsibilities most typically used: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed.[4] It is used for clarifying and defining roles and responsibilities in cross-functional or departmental projects and processes.[5] There are a number of alternatives to the RACI model. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsibility_assignment_matrix (more)

Henry Farrell and Cosma Shalizi believe that Cognitive Democracy (Democracy) offers superior outcomes for Problem Solving in Complex Systems than Markets and Command And Control systems ("hierarchy"). Specifically, we argue that democracy has unique benefits as a form of collective problem solving in that it potentially allows people with highly diverse perspectives to come together in order collectively to solve problems. Democracy can do this better than either markets and hierarchies, because it brings these diverse perceptions into direct contact with each other, allowing forms of learning that are unlikely either through the price mechanism of markets or the hierarchical arrangements of bureaucracy. Furthermore, democracy can, by experimenting, take advantage of novel forms of collective cognition (collective intelligence) that are facilitated by new media. Disputation Arena?

The Other "MoviePass Economy". Back in 2018, Kevin Roose wrote a wonderful short piece: "The Entire Economy Is MoviePass Now. Enjoy It While You Can." The main thrust was that the US economy—especially the economy as it's experienced by young people with pretty good jobs in big cities—was increasingly full of unsustainably cheap consumer products financed by VC largesse (Edit: a reader notes that MoviePass is a bad example of this because it wasn’t VC-financed).
