In the thread the naivete of early SF I asked if this was a real thing yet.
The reason I asked was not just that I liked the idea that it could be done, but I remember watching a program a while back on the stalk market and how the mathematicians were running it, and how those that adhered strictly to the mathematics of it didn't believe in bubbles in the market, and those that studied a little psychology (or a lot) before entering the field did because they understood that mob-mentality was a thing and needed to be accounted for in the equations.
so is it a thing? is it almost a thing? all thoughts welcome.
