Example text

Nor is there a competition trap since unitary, rational lonesome wolves have perfect foresight through prompt punch-and-counterpunch responses. Nothing lasts since everything happens stante pede. That is, in the instantaneity of hypercompetition there are neither anticipation nor feedback costs, for a simple reason: timing drives out time in a world thriving on speed and surprise only. Subscribers to this kill- or-be-killed scenario live in a world apparently untouched by the lessons learned on the questionability of the under-socialized conception of “economic man” in neo- classical economics and the over-rationalistic conception of “efficient man” in the The New Industrial State Revisited 33 (admittedly somewhat less unworldly) world of institutional economics.
