Theory of non-territorial internal exit: Latest working paper on SSRN

Dividing-the-National-Map-1860

My most recent working paper—Theory of non-territorial internal exit—is now up on SSRN here.

Abstract: This paper presents a model of partial internal exit that captures the competitive dynamic between incumbent and potential governments in a non-territorial political system. This model particularly applies to the case of ‘cryptosecession’ that appears the most likely avenue for non-territorial decentralisation to ever eventuate. It demonstrates how fiscal exploitation is reduced and eventually eliminated as the capability of citizens to move to non-territorial jurisdictions increases. When interpreted as a model of cryptosecession, it shows how the balance of citizen opacity and government legibility determines the balance of fiscal exploitation versus equivalence.

Keywords: non-territorial, jurisdiction, secession, internal exit, cryptoanarchy.
