Building a more resilient economy with Bay Bucks - KALW

Building a more resilient economy with Bay Bucks - KALW | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it

Lub has tried all kinds of complementary and alternative currencies through the years. He’s an old hand at bartering – he once traded jewelry for an entire house. If you order from Lub’s website, there’s an option at checkout for wholesale, retail, or barter exchange.

#NeoLiberalism is Finished

#NeoLiberalism is Finished | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it
NeoLiberalism is finished.  Please note that I am not against commercial enterprises that innovate and take risks, they are great. No, I am against the Chicago School of Economics orthodoxy that blindly keeps telling everybody that EVERYTHING should be placed in unregulated Market Forces, where the 'invisible hand' will rule to let the best win.…

Cutting the Gordian Knot of Technological Unemployment with Unconditional Basic Income

Cutting the Gordian Knot of Technological Unemployment with Unconditional Basic Income | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it
The creation and use of ever more sophisticated tools that allow humankind to do increasingly more with increasingly less is extraordinary, but it has a catch. What is it, and how do we resolve it?
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

We really do need the Unconditional Basic Income for a sustainable and progressive future.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 16, 12:24 PM
With increasing automation in workplaces i.e. manufacturing and restaurants, basic income is part of a broader answer. Another part of the solution is to teach skills that prepare students for an uncertain future and are grounded in the present i.e. problem solving. This includes considering trans-disciplinary teaching.

One of the teachers I interviewed spoke about this at length. Teachers would teach side-by-side and that has its own benefits.

UN Report: Robots Will Replace Two-Thirds of All Workers in the Developing World

UN Report: Robots Will Replace Two-Thirds of All Workers in the Developing World | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it
Not only will 75 percent of jobs go to automation, but the developing world may even see swaths of companies leaving their shores since labor will be less of a factor for industry. Plans, such as a universal basic income, need to be initiated before this process proliferates and these regions are plunged into even more dire circumstances.

Again, there's an growing need for a univeral basic income, due to the rapid replacement of jobs by robots.

Robots Could Make Universal Basic Income a Necessity

Robots Could Make Universal Basic Income a Necessity | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it

Universal basic income isn’t a new idea. Variations of the concept — that all citizens, regardless of their career, should have a guaranteed wage — date back to the 16th century, but it’s never been successfully implemented. But the 21st century has something the 16th century didn’t have: robots. And as automated workers take more and more jobs from human beings, basic income might be the only way to keep the country’s economy afloat.

Het Rijnland Model anders bekeken

Het Rijnland Model anders bekeken | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it
In 1991 introduceerde de Fransman Michel Albert (1930-2015) het begrip Rijnland Model in zijn spraakmakende boek ‘Capitalisme contre Capitalisme’. Na het vallen van de Muur in 1989 viel het hem op dat zich twee vormen van kapitalisme ontwikkelden: een Europese (landen in het stroomgebied van de Rijn) en een Amerikaanse variant (Angelsaksisch Model). Je ziet het pas als je het door hebt. Dit is typisch zo’n geval. In dit artikel gaan we vooral in op het meest essentiële verschil tussen de beide varianten binnen de organisatiekunde. Belangrijk is dat je een weloverwogen keuze maakt en niet ergens stuck in the middle blijft hangen.

(Future 8) Fractanomics - The Issue of Scale in the Network Economy (repost from my 1997 version)

(Future 8) Fractanomics - The Issue of Scale in the Network Economy (repost from my 1997 version) | Cooperative capitalism | Scoop.it

Let’s face it, most success seem to migrate to those people or companies who already are very popular. In Holland we have a saying that ‘the devil shits on the largest shitheap’, meaning that the rich get richer all the time. The Bible also mentions the inequality of the way people use their ‘talents’ over the years.

A more recent example of this phenomenon is the very wide scale of visitor frequency of WWW pages [1]. Some popular pages have millions (and growing) of hits a day and others have only a few. Success seems to attract success, which can result in growth. Whatever the feelings of unfairness and fears of market dominance these inequalities may raise, it looks very interesting to take an objective closer look at what mechanisms may be behind this phenomenon.

There are very few policy ideas that attract support from all sides of the political spectrum these days. Universal basic income is one of them. The idea of replacing existing welfare systems by giving everyone unconditional cash payments—regardless of income, work status, or anything else—is appealing to conservatives who want to shrink government bureaucracy
