We can think of the economy as a kind of robot. Its only sensor is the consumer's decision to buy or not buy a thing at a certain price. Indeed, hardly an ideal way to know what people truly value! It's main actuator is the firm. What a difficult way to organize! Perhaps we can use location trails, transaction histories, and mobile menus to know people's true preferences instead. Perhaps we can build creative tools for lightweight coordination.
