A new digital ecology is evolving, and humans are being left behind
This is an excellent point. You mean something similar to Valve's fee on steam's marketplace? They take 10% cut out of every transaction, no matter how big or small. Unfortunately, it (the Tobin tax mentioned in the article ) is being resisted by some very powerful people. Not really, that's more akin to the capital gains tax already in place. The problem is that because these taxes are based on percentage, its fairly easy for the algorithms to overcome the higher tax rate with small margins and massive trade volume. For the algorithms, however, this is a major roadblock. The added overhead of the fee means that this method will not work as well if at all.
