I think I have set up a system that is every-bit as simple as economics
(supply and demand/demand and supply). Though I'm not an economist...if
someone *is* they could tell you how they measure value and worth. I am
just saying that it is the same with individuals and groups as with apples
and oranges. To answer your question, though: ("Can you give an example of
how we are to select a winner?) We would measure their value and their
worth, and compare that number to how much interest they have accrued in
trust to find their equity. Did I use any of those terms correctly?

One way I have proposed recently (the professionalistic model) is that a
person who does not profess to any particular organization would have more
control (status/class) and higher standards. I say that we count the number
of times they referred to someone other than themself (a mentor, quoted a
source, referred to an organization, etc.) and the number of times that
others quoted them and/or referred to them. The more people refer to
others, the less valuable they are: The more they are referred to by others
the more valuable they are.
