Not a Co-op? Not a Platform Co-op! | P2P Foundation

Last month Shareable wrote a great article entitled “11 Platform Cooperatives Creating a Real Sharing Economy“. It’s a really nice list of projects who are all moving in the right direction (i.e. toward greater sharing of ownership and control), but some of them aren’t actually co-operatives. This got me thinking: Should organisations that are not... Continue reading →

Christian Felber and the Economy for the Common Good 

Christian Felber and the Economy for the Common Good  | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Christian Felber is not just an activist, but a scholar and an entrepreneur. He’s a lecturer at the Vienna University of Economics and Business and author of several bestsellers including: “50 Suggestions for a Fairer World”, “New Values for the Economy”, “Let’s save the Euro!”, “Change Everything: Creating an economy for the common good” and “Money. The new rules of the game”. He initiated the movement of the “Economy for the Common Good” and the project “Bank for the Common Good” (ECG).

He did his homework. What is the common good? Looking into constitutions everywhere – he studied what people thought was fair and just. There are commonalities of what a good, purposeful life and a just society entail. Felber co-founded Attac Austria, a group of 12 Austrian entrepreneurs who started to apply these constitutional principles in business, trying to create a new model that transcended the old polarity of communism and capitalism. The Economy for the Common Good (ECG) movement was born. Today about 1750 companies, primarily from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, have declared their support to ECG and are serving the common good while trying to improve the

The objective of this project is to explore and describe the future of workplaces in Britain, during a decade when the concept of ‘workplace care’ is changing and employers need to future-proof benefit packages to attract and retain talent. We have investigated the social, cultural, economic and technological forces shaping ‘workplace care’ in Britain; new and emerging trends; and the future of workplaces and employee care, looking towards 2030. This report contains four macro trends which describe the future of workplace care over the coming decades. The report also contains five analyses of how the trends resonate with employees in the accountancy, legal, technology, retail, media and advertising business sectors.

Complexity theory and financial regulation

Traditional economic theory could not explain, much less predict, the near collapse of the financial system and its long-lasting effects on the global economy. Since the 2008 crisis, there has been increasing interest in using ideas from complexity theory to make sense of economic and financial markets. Concepts, such as tipping points, networks, contagion, feedback, and resilience have entered the financial and regulatory lexicon, but actual use of complexity models and results remains at an early stage. Recent insights and techniques offer potential for better monitoring and management of highly interconnected economic and financial systems and, thus, may help anticipate and manage future crises.

Which Way for the Gig Economy?

Which Way for the Gig Economy? | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
The so-called “sharing economy” is sometimes also called the “gig economy” — arguably a more accurate term, because “sharing economy” carries overtones of cooperation and mutuality that are (to say the least) grossly misleading. In the case of ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft it’s misleading because it suggests the direct sharing of rides between...

Economy – Cooperacy

Economy – Cooperacy | Economic Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it

The idea behind an diversity-based cooperative society is that wealth is redistributed in order to let every identity to have the possibility to fulfill its potential. This idea has been the base of democracies, communist and socialist systems, and capitalist-liberal ones. Capitalism accuses communism and socialism to be fake and to destroy the individual dignity. Socialism and communism instead point out that capitalism is greedy and the system brings to in-equivalence. And they're both right.
