In the present day context, if the relationship between value and price is always steadily diverging, and given our constantly evolving understanding of the nature of transactions, can the trust mechanisms of current economic and financial models ever create the effective conditions for constructive utopia building? And if such systems are structurally primed for collapse, then what might our possible escape routes be?
