Not a lot of new in this article about sharing economy yet a good reflection for the vision we want to create. It asks, 

 

We’re at a critical juncture. Will the sharing community think small and eventually fade into obscurity as trends do, or will we go on an arduous yet fulfilling hero’s journey to heal society?

I’m in it for the journey. How about you?

P2P Foundation » Blog Archive » The Sharing Economy: Capitalism’s Last Stand? | 'Next Economy and Wealth' | Scoop.it
Ferananda's insight:

Really recommend this article to understand why the 'Sharing economy' is not the holy grail that is illuminating the path towards an economic system that could regenerate the planet and our people.


I have been speaking a lot about this since more and more 'sharing economy' models are appearing every day. Lets remember that capitalism has been quite clever in adapting itself to the worldviews and values of the population. It happened in the 60s and its happening now. Don't get me wrong, its great, yet its not the answer but a small piece of the puzzle. 


Another relevant piece is the distinction among collaborative and sharing economy. Stacco Tronocoso says 'the collaborative economy and sharing economy (or collaborative consumption) are not the same concept. The sharing economy is just one part of the collaborative economy, as is distributed production, P2P finance and the open source & knowledge movements. What these phenomena have in common is their reliance on horizontal networks and distributed power within communities, as opposed to competition between hierarchical organisations, which has dominated economic life since the second industrial revolution. 

 

The author even prevents us from using the term 'sharing economy'. Curious? Read through.

New stories for a New Economy

New stories for a New Economy | 'Next Economy and Wealth' | Scoop.it
Ferananda's insight:

Reading this pdf was very inspiring to bring words into the new stories that will allow us to transform one of the major systems that will affect all the rest: our economy. 

 

David Korten says:

 

Any discussion of a New Economy properly begins
with the obvious truth: Without nature, there are no
people. The Living Universe and Earth Community
provide the underlying frame for the New Story for a
New Economy.

 

He carefully goes through morals and science and the main stories and narratives that have influenced the design of our social systems. He then tells the story of 'the Living Universe' and the interconnectedness, inter-relatedness of all which integrates the one and the many, agency and communion, sovereignty and accountability.  Beautiful and essential work.

@ScotT A Gibbs the person I know that explores further how innovation the currency of the future to bring innovation forward is @ingenesist .My thoughts on that is that if we take the metacurrency distinction of what currency is then currencies is a new language, a new expressive capacity for humanity that holds the promise of radical innovation and change.

Paul Kemp-Robertson: Bitcoin. Sweat. Tide. Meet the future of branded currency. | Video on TED.com

Currency -- the bills and coins you carry in your wallet and in your bank account -- is founded on marketing, on the belief that banks and governments are trustworthy.

What I most enjoyed of this talk is to witness how we are finally realizing that decentralization has gotten to the monetary system. We can create our own and actually they already thousands of currencies out there.  Paul mentions several like airmiles, loyalty points, sweat, and how companies are using it as a disruption to our relationship to money.

As Paul Kemp-Robertson points out The Wealth of a Product is linked to loyalty and trust. Currencies are serving this process by allowing companies to use currencies as tools for exchange, social capital and measurements of value. Interesting examples.

Is Content the New Currency? | 'Next Economy and Wealth' | Scoop.it
Between the endless Euro drama and the Bitcoin brouhaha, currency has been much in the news of late. Most people would probably name the US Dollar as the dominant currency in this day and age.
Ferananda's insight:

Five Reasons Content Is the New Currency:

Content has meaning beyond the data it contains. It can be shared and exchanged with others to acquire additional knowledge—much like a traditional currency.Financial transactions used to buy status. Now, content buys earned trust.In the sharing economy, bonds are formed through content and utilitarian exchange.Content creates equity much like stocks and bonds. The more subject matter expertise a brand brings to the table, the more business they can create. This expertise is displayed in the form of content.The definition of the term currency is anything that is used as a medium of exchange. Content acts as that catalyst because it brokers an exchange between people with similar interests and goals.
