Chilean Cyber-Economy

Interesting bit from South American socialists

Before ’73 Coup, Chile Tried to Find the Right Software for Socialism - New York Times:

"The project, called Cybersyn, was the brainchild of A. Stafford Beer, a visionary Briton who employed his “cybernetic” concepts to help Mr. Allende find an alternative to the planned economies of Cuba and the Soviet Union. After the coup it became the subject of intense military scrutiny."
