The biggest win from open source is transparency. By having more data, especially with regards to raw materials and revenue flows – everyone gets to make better decisions. Employees get an idea of how much they make. Companies also get to share important pricing informations so that they can innovate further. If companies want to have limited liability and benefits, then it makes sense for governments to ask for 100% openness. Economy becomes transparent as demand and supply can be seen and it improves economic calculability.
Really digging the concept of open startups.
