I think we need to change the "direct computer connection" part. Computers *there* are not as advanced as *here*. BoArthur

Well, it could be done, but in all likelihood you'd be looking at the likes of BBSs and CompuServe there. There is a nascient internet equivalent there, but it's only starting to become known to the Jockow-in-the-Street --Kgaughan 22:07, 15 October 2005 (PDT)

Wow. I know people who actually believe this. One presumes that IB must have its equivalent of Ayn Rand and Milton Friedman. They (not Rand and Friedman, the folks I know who believe this stuff) firmly insist that the poor are that way because of habit and lack of moral character. My only real quibble is with the term "NeoCapitalism" although I'm not sure what else to call it... Zahir 14:57, 29 Sep 2005 (PDT)

How about "Plutuism" ? from Plutus, the roman god of plenty--Marc Pasquin 17:13, 29 Sep 2005 (PDT)
Maybe associated with someone who came up with this idea, much as a certain brand of socialism is called Marxist-Leninism *here* might be known (unofficially, anyway) as...uh...something. Zahir 21:47, 29 Sep 2005 (PDT)
If that, hopefully someone with a distinctive surname (smithism just wouldn't do)--Marc Pasquin 11:03, 30 Sep 2005 (PDT)
Perhaps this could be a varient of corporatism *there*. --Sikulu 05:38, 11 December 2006 (PST)
I am not sure if it is related to corporatism enough to be considered a form of corporatism. Of course, it might be so that corporatism somehow influenced the original authors of neocapitalism (although it might be so taht they didn't as well and that neocapitalism was more a reaction to communism that failed in many places of IB far much quicker than in the real world).
