If you do, turn your head sideways and squint at it. What does that look like to you?
To me, it looks an awful lot like capitalism.
But there's a great big difference: the Damping Factor.
In PageRank the damping factor keeps any one node in the graph from falling to 0 value, which is important because the whole point of PageRank is to get an ordered set from an otherwise unorganized graph.
Let me say that a different way: when you don't know what's important in a graph, PageRank can give you a pretty good first approximation, but it won't work if you allow nodes' values to drop to zero. The edges (links) in the graph are performing a service: they're telling you what's important, what's worth paying attention to, so even if nobody points to a node, it's worth giving it a little value, so it can vote on what else in the graph is important.
I'll write more about this later, but you can probably guess the gist of it: something about a guaranteed minimum income...
