I came here from the https://www.valueflo.ws/ project where we are working on a set of common vocabularies and protocols for economic networks. I think they are compatible with category theory, and want to find out if and how deeply that is true in this course. If so, we should be able to put a better mathematical foundation on our efforts.
We have also been invited to work on a project this summer called "Accounting for planetary survival" where we will really need a better mathematical foundation.
The lemon meringue pie process flow in the preface to the book reminds me of something we did in one of the valueflows-related software experiments valled NRP (Network Requirements Planning): https://speakerdeck.com/mikorizal/salsa-recipe-plan-reality
Gives me more confidence that this will be relevant.
