The Next Economy

The Next Economy | Next Economy | Scoop.it
Szandra and Jeff met a few months ago in Budapest when she shared her research with the Integral European Conference. Szandra is an "ecological economist", and to create a pathway towards the economy to come she uses a method called backcasting. With backcasting the researchers begin with a vision of what they want to exist in say, fifty years, and then they work backwards to see what would have to happen to create it.

Charles van der Haegen's curator insight, July 19, 12:35 AM

Transitioning from globalization to Eco-Localism.

This is also what Blue Economy strives at,

So much is happening in this world

I like how Fritjof Capra writes it:

"

We do not need to invent sustainable human communities. We can learn from societies that have lived sustainably for centuries. We can also model communities after nature's ecosystems, which are sustainable communities of plants, animals, and microorganisms. Since the outstanding characteristic of the biosphere is its inherent ability to sustain life, a sustainable human community must be designed in such a manner that its technologies and social institutions honor, support, and cooperate with nature's inherent ability to sustain life."

Fritjof Capra"

A quoi devra ressembler l'économie de demain?

John Payne's curator insight, July 20, 10:47 AM

I doubt the narrator of this video would recognize roboticists as allies, and also expect that many roboticists won't immediately see a connection. That connection is encapsulated in the word "attention".  In a world in which farmers are hard-pressed to find enough help at a wage they can afford, there isn't enough attention to go around, With the result that crops not requiring so much attention are substituted for those requiring more, and, where no subsidies exist, concern for environmental issues go wanting. Robotics can supply the needed attention, in the most basic sense for now, but eventually in all senses of the word.

Ferananda's comment, January 26, 11:18 PM
@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. (see the former video on Integral wealth).

What good is wealth without happiness? What good is profit without purpose? These are things that the market isn't going to answer. These are problems t that require legislative action and law enforcement to solve. Otherwise greed will just come back to destroy its followers and many innocent civilians in the process.

This is a review of Saral Sarkar's Eco-socialism or Eco-capitalism couched as a response to the exaggerated promises of the eco-capitalists.  Sarkar has taken on the exaggerated promises of all who would suggest that the world can be turned into a Disneyland of consumer fun, and proposed instead a Spartan world economy where basic needs are met while ecological realities are taken seriously.

David Graeber It is value that brings universes into being

Any theoretical term is an implicit statement about human nature. Anthropologiststend to be uncomfortable with this fact but it is nonetheless true. Even if one wereto make a statement as apparently innocuous as “ritual can take many forms inmany places,” one is still asserting that “ritual” is a meaningful cross-culturalcategory, implying—as pretty much any anthropological discussion of ritualinvariably does imply—that we can assume all human beings have engaged in somekind of ritual activity at some point or another, that ritual is an inherent aspect ofhuman sociality, even if there’s no scholarly consensus whatsoever as to what,precisely, a ritual is or what it says about us that we are all in some sense ritualproducing beings. And the same is true of any other theoretical term: kinship,authority, labor, symbol, the body, performance, or anything else.

Ferananda's curator insight, March 25, 8:30 PM

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.

City government controls city-as-a-whole. In order to provide opportunities for citizens to shape local commons within the city, there has to be smaller levels of governance... without creating more of the expensive and onerous machinery of government. Social coops may offer one option.
