A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

Structural groups in social networks are often characterized by a high proportion of negative ties between them. Could negative ties help explaining the emergence and stability of groups? Our new paper in #SocialNetworks (with @aaavoros and Károly Takács)
sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
We argue that a number of positive social network mechanisms relate to group cohesion, most importantly the “big four”: reciprocity, homophily, transitivity, and popularity. But these forces of attraction may not be sufficient to explain group boundaries.
Between groups it is more likely that weak, neutral, or negative ties exist. A model that considers the co-evolution of positive and negative ties (forces of attraction and repulsion) could be better suited to explain the formation of groups.

on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

Media that covers #Media #Publishing #Journalism #tech #SocialNetworks is often critical of traffic-driving algorithms, distribution of ad revenue, personal data collection/sale. Yet these writers have the ability to get users to force change. /1 notd.io/notes/56844813…
Most of the abuses that this sector of media is critical about come from internet giants, who pay lip service in response, because those abuses are very profitable, & regulation is unlikely in the US & users not motivated enough to change their usage of networks. /2
US regulation that would help stop the criticized practices is unlikely to help, mainly because Congress isn't qualified to design these regulations, so they would leave it to lobbyists working for the industry to be regulated /3
