A free market encourages an aggressively passive resistance. When Netflix, for example, raises its price against your falling income, you are likely to aggress the alternative. Netflix passively loses market share and its big-pay stars price themselves out of the market. All the while, the competition is naturally aggressing the alternative, affording a price that meets the demands of your falling income. If not, then there is deflation, and everybody loses (NPO).
NPO is Non-Pareto Optimality.
Remember that Vilfredo Pareto was a member of the Elite School, which was a school of political-economic philosophy at the turn of the 20th Century. They observed the populist sentiment of Marxism quickly became a philosophy that supported the tyranny of elite authority.
While Lenin and Stalin were agressing elite authority, so were capitalists. “Bloody Ludlow” is just one of many examples in which capitalists aggressively defeated free-market mechanics to attain what the Elite School described as the natural tendency for populist sentiment to organize (structure) into elite power and (measurable) authority.
Now, emergently, we have the TPP. It is a partnership of elites, structured to contain the growing risk of “attainment” (which is regulatory language for things we don’t want exceeding the value of things we do–NPO). Attainment of negative externalities passively aggress in the global marketplace because, you see, it’s a free market, after all. The symmetry is overwhelmingly powerful, having naturally emergent properties that empower (like the Elite School says) an elite, bureaucratic authority to keep us from destroying ourselves, like when producers raise prices against falling consumer income to “attain” the highest possible margin of profit, which is, naturally, deflationary (NPO), subjecting us all to the test of economic stress (measuring the optimization of power and authority, which exists, naturally, in a political dimension).
NPO measures the ECV-symmetry.
The more consolidated the structure the more measurably pluralistic the tendency. (See, The Bureaucratic Model of Power and Political Economy, by Griffith E. Lighton Jr, in the University of Louisville Library.) The more passive the populace is for allowing aggressive consolidation of the risk, typically for protection (consolidation of industry and markets, for example), the more likely it is to be aggressive, which is the measurable demand (the passive element of free-market mechanics that aggressively controls for useful, and immediate, empirically measurable authority) for its containment (without sacrificing the natural right–the ECV-symmetry–of self-determination).
