"One comment on the blog equated the IDM model to the economic theory of Communism because of central planning, and hence considered it to be a failure given the collapse of Soviet Communism."

Apek, is it so? I won't think so. Its due to various other political issues and factors leaded to that. communism is still strong in China, Libya, Vietnam etc

Jacob, I agree with you. However, USSR was a representative of Communism around the world and USA as representative of Capitalism...that is what the race was all about. Amongst the two Spviet collapsed first and with way things are going in US...US seems to be the next unless there are good economic reforms.

Apek, you mean US capitalism is going to collapse?

That is whole reason why I have authored my upcoming book as PANACEA for our economic troubles. If we do not reform our regressing economy...Economic collapse seems inevitable by end of 2015 or early 2016.

The USA, in my opinion, isn't in fear of imminent collapse. At the same time, success in many scenarios (supply chain, general business, etc.) are dependant on spotting potential directions (both good and bad) early and reacting accordingly. that's part of what makes this an important discussion.

I agree with you Hailey. We can learn from past mistakes and move ahead. But, that willingness to change the direction is very important.

Apek, 

As someone who watches history documentaries during my tea/lunch breaks and other free time I can positively tell you that I don't see any chance of humanity learning from their mistakes any time soon.

Society is not evolving at the same pace technology does, which is a problem all in its own.

"But, that willingness to change the direction is very important."

Yes, that's true. For that to have a positive effect you need plenty of individuals willing to change the direction.

Do you think there are enough individuals willing to change direction? And in the hypotetical case that there were, why things haven't changed direction yet, then? :/ 

-Susan

Susan, Good point. The coming economic crisis because of our inability and unwillingness to progress as humanity...will force this change for our best. I think we are nearing a big economic crisis of our lifetime. The steps that humanity takes from here will decide the future of our species. I believe we will make the right choice. Best wishes, Apek

@Apek, is there a starting point that you would suggest in terms of reform? it's a pretty complex issue...
