To be fair to Mr. Doctorow, he does point out in this interview that his society would not function as described; and that it would need:
some kind of antitrust law or garbage collector that periodically comes along and randomizes Whuffie

Whuffie is the measure of respect in the society of Down and Out; more than that, it's that society's equivalent of cash - as much as it has any equivalent.

Of course, unless you've brainwashed 100% of the population, the anti-trust laws or garbage collectors will need to be backed up by the men with the you-know-whats.
