I guess we should be thankful we don't live in China?

"Big data meets Big Brother as China moves to rate its citizens"

The Chinese government plans to launch its Social Credit System in 2020. The aim? To judge the trustworthiness – or otherwise – of its 1.3 billion residents

Shocking

It brings the Sucker / Cheater / Grudger concept of social evolution into the digital age. Blockchain with a broader scope.

The ethical questions will be centred around:
What are the algorithmic criteria?
Negative vs. positive attributes e.g. does having no debts imply good risk or bad risk?
Appeals process?
Will it apply to companies e.g. do they pay their suppliers promptly?
Will it / can it be used (or misused) to identify government corruption?

What was Harry Tuttle's number again?

If you see him before I do, tell him I have an idea for a subculture.

What a dystopian nightmare.
I feel for the citizens.

Seems to me that they learned it from the Whiny Little Bitch. If you're a rich, white, fuck the WLB thinks you're wonderful and if you're not then he couldn't care less about you.

The same government overseeing the implementation of this system just made it punishable by up to 3 years in prison to disrespect the national anthem.

Given that and other indications of the direction China has been taking, I can only use my imagination as to what criteria they'd consider to be important.
