A bit like how we science nerds groan when we see science errors. But I
think they did a fair picking apart of some points that they disagree
with, a bit like how some analyse Ringworld stability or the ecological
impact of exploding Death Stars.

Here is my response to the Mieses piece:

I think they underestimate the potential for turbulence in posthuman
economies and that we should think about reputation markets more.
