The productivity of ants and initial conditions

How ant colonies work
· Ants don’t use central control: All that matters is the rate at which ants meet other ants.
· All systems like this without central control are regulated by using very simple interactions.
· High opportunity cost environment = low competition [regulations –> monopolies]. System stays stop unless something positive happens. [why bureaucracy has low adaptability]
· Low opportunity cost environment = high competition / cooperation [freedom –> prosperity]. System stays go unless something negative happens. [Adlerian psychology “Are they happy?” “Yes.” Well, let’s leave them alone.”]
