It will be interesting to see how women's incentive structure will change introducing artificial wombs in the market. IMHO their tradeoffs on choosing hard (mostly intellectual) works wich requires long investments in time will lower.


Anyway, if the free market would be allowed, more solutions to parenting and housekeeping would be affordable (and existent, in many cases). Obviously culture plays a role too, for example in some countries, as Rwanda, is customary to have young people (mainly students, mainly males) working as cookers and housekeepers even for poor families, to gain what they need for schooling, which is mostly private (but not so expensive as in the socialist USA). This affect positively the burden of many women to invest in a career in the marketplace or in the public.


The lack of risk taking is effectively, as many of you noted, a real issue. It may be genetically defined, but genetics can be changed even now, and nothing of that could be stopped in an unregulated free market.

Women are generally valued less on the marketplace (as minorities, freaks, etc)

Really "freaks,etc".  Not really a good way to make you point when you put women, blacks in the same category as "freaks & etc".  Maybe I'm missing your point but it is hard to take a post seriously after that first sentence.


It depends on what you mean for "freaks". A freak is anyone that in the context of a particular culture is considered deviant or just unusual. If "deviant" it's more probably devalued than "unusual".
 It has nothing to do with an alleged objective way to be a freak (it's just don't exist). You couldn't know my point of view just by a post (you are probably too ignorant in philosophy and have probably frequented too few places and kind of people to imagine my point of view on culture and society; I hope not to be offensive but the average american is a bit ignorant about the world and what is thought and has been thought..)


I'm not a reactionary, neoreactionary or conservative anyway. Nor white XD

Women are generally valued less on the marketplace (as minorities, freaks, etc) because bosses subjectively value them less (or at least they know other bossies value them less so that their market value is lower than that of, let's say, males). It's mostly an assimetry of information "problem" that the economic rationality of the market would solve this way: bosses who "discover" that they can buy female worker at a cheaper price than male ones but without decreasing productivity would be praised on the market (lower costs, lower prices of your goods, or, in case of unchanged prices, higher returns). The signal would be noted on the market, eventually the marketed value of males would lower (competition), ergo your almighty equilibrium. Information would be updated because of bosses experiencing that females are more valuable workers than thought before. So let female prices fall, for female sake. Otherwise if the setting is libertarian, females could associate to work in only-females enterprises or secede XD!


Problem? It happened in the end of 19th century thanks to overproduction crises in Europe, do you know what has been the reaction of male workers? Mobbing against females, crying the corruption of familiar order, etc. Nothing so distant from what has be done toward minorities and immigrants. Rules to raise the minimum wage has been found good means to reduce females's invasion of the marketplace and the side effect of having to rethink family roles. Humans suck.

Serious calculation problems. Technology and free banking in a Friedmanian anarchocapitalist setting is all we need.

Oddly enough, I registered a domain for this service in April 2012.  I even implemented a proof of concept and hid a few timestamps in the blockchain.  Demand for the service was zero though, so I never bothered to polish it up for a public release.

There are, I should point out, a variety of ways to implement the idea.  Using blockchain.info is on the, erm, less good end of the spectrum.

If you don't feel like searching for it, I'll summarize my method:  User submits hash or file and metadata.  Metadata and hash get stuffed into a text file with info from other documents.  Hash of text file is used as a private key.  Some random transaction is spent to the corresponding address.  Proof transaction output is swept by system.  Once sweep accumulates 6 confirmations, text file is published.

(Notice the lack of external dependencies and UTXO pollution)

Cool.

No sane person have incentives to start a thread like your. You are lying or I don't understand stupidity. I'll continue to look to this thread in case something funny happened (so unlikely...).

Cool! I'm not American, nor is him, but as far as I know the American Army is hellishy utilitarian (who's not?), so at a good price I could send him to the nearest American camp...
Anyway, it's not precognition so it's off topic of this off-topic. He moved a day something he calls psy-wheel. Boring as hell.

Welcome to the club! But remember, "vires in numeris"! SO being the majority of human cattle, we, the stupid people, could ingroup and "remove" all the rest. Maybe a new religion to reinforce it all may be necessary, but I'm sure that a bit of anti-intellectualism, something about "judes" and so on, may be all that we need. PM me if you want to take seriously this solution as a mean to increase your future utility. Thanks me later. (Stupid Power!)

A friend of mine can guess the figure of an hidden card with good assurance. Precognition? Maybe a sort of, maybe not. Maybe it's just plain old confirmation bias.
