Why or how would this magically be the case? Are you assuming that individuals are going to make intelligent, healthy and well thought out choices? If the system is based on people being rational then it is doomed.

The living standards would start to fall drastically when the bolo reached a member count of around 600, and the community members would want to either leave and join another bolo, or start a new bolo together with the unsatisfied community members. Most arriving ibus most certainly would not want to stay.

I was a little tired when i replied yesterday, should have cleared things up better. P. M. has a page or two dedicated to explaining how a bolo would keep its member count stable, as well as how exploitative and abusive bolos would wither away due to their own dysfunction and their relations to sorrounding communities.
