Under the hypothesis that something like Deutsch's naturalized Church-Turing 
thesis is correct then the real is computable and the computable is 
possible. Is the same as saying, "All that is real is rational; and all that 
is rational is real"? Sort of, except there isn't necessarily an apologetic 

Regarding the "(natural?) 'nature' of capitalism". Both natural language 
dialectics (e.g. systematic dialectics) and computational modelling make the 
assumption that the theoretical languages they employ (e.g., natural 
languages or programming languages) are adequate to their subject matter.
