      In a previous article, we discussed the ripeness theory of conflict. The theory of intractability is closely related.

Greg Rader: "I want to introduce the term "asymmetric accounting" to describe systems that record and track the provision of value rather than the volume of money tric accounting mechanisms are congruous with the reality that freely given advice or knowledge can be just as valuable as purchased knowledge.
