Material balances are a method of economic planning where material supplies are accounted for in natural units (as opposed to using monetary accounting) and used to balance the supply of available inputs with targeted outputs. Material balancing involves taking a survey of the available inputs and raw materials in an economy and then using a balance sheet to balance the inputs with output targets specified by industry to achieve a balance between supply and demand. This balance is used to formulate a plan for resource allocation and investment in a national economy.

Resources about Cybersocialism / Computational Economics?
As a reformed neo-liberal, I recently came across Cockshott's [Towards a New Socialism](, and I have to say I'm absolutely stunned. I never even considered there could be anything other than markets to allocate resource in an at least somewhat efficient manner. I realize that the field has received very little attention, and I am unable to find much other sophisticated research on the topic of computer-optimized central planning or modern takes on the economic calculation problem.

Paul Cockshott and Allin F. Cottrell]( Does anyone know any other things I can look into?
