Bauwens Joins Ecuador in Planning a Commons-based, Peer Production Economy | David Bollier

Bauwens Joins Ecuador in Planning a Commons-based, Peer Production Economy | David Bollier | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it
Here’s a development that could have enormous global implications for the search for a new commons-based economic paradigm.  Working with an academic partner, the Government of Ecuador has launched a major strategic research project to “fundamentally re-imagine Ecuador” based on the principles of open networks, peer production and commoning.   

I am thrilled to learn that my dear friend Michel Bauwens, founder of the P2P Foundation and my colleague in the Commons Strategies Group, will be leading the research team for the next ten months.  The project seeks to “remake the roots of Ecuador’s economy, setting off a transition into a society of free and open knowledge.”

Dit is een vertaling van het artikel ‘Scope not Scale’ verschenen op 22/03/2012 op de website van Aljazeera.


Wat hebben middeleeuwse monniken, Cubaanse socialisten en Wikipedia met elkaar gemeen?

Chiang Mai, Thailand – De competitieve dynamiek van het kapitalisme is welbekend, en heeft alles te maken met schaalvoordelen.

Wanneer bedrijven meer eenheden produceren kunnen ze de prijs per eenheid doen dalen en zodoende hun concurrenten de loef afsteken. Multinationals en wereldmerken maken vandaag gebruik van uiterst complexe waardeketens waarbij de verschillende onderdelen van een product op massale schaal worden vervaardigd in verschillende delen van de wereld.

Toon Van den Brempt's insight:

Wonderful! Sigh! Finally! ART IN THE P2P-NETWORK!!

 

My Scoop.it Topic

"P2P search for New Politics & Economics"

has in its description:

The Multitude Network Rebellion cannot resolve anything without clear political and economic answers, not afraid of artistic quality. This is a search.>>

 

my Profile says:

Ex-Amnesty staff and former Kunst & Democratie. Eager to learn about and contribute to the revival of P2P-force and Occupy / Indignons-nous! Trilingual Belgian. Addict of Info, cello and drawing. Arts can make a difference!>>

 

And indeed, as Oscar Niemeyer who left us last week says about architects and artists in general,"Our concern is political too – to change the world." 

 

In is my utmost believe that inorder to change the world, we need art as much if not more than we need theories.

It is without saying that I am glad whit the message "Les artistes s'empare du réseau / Artists take over the network."

 

I really hope that the P2P-Foundation and the P2P-rebellion in general will be eager to include artistic messages. Is it pure hazard or is it synergy that today and before reading the above Post, I posted this purely artistic testimony?

 

Let's share this and these ideas!

Collaboration and co-operation: Sleeping giants of economic shift change

Collaboration and co-operation: Sleeping giants of economic shift change | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

by Shane Hughes

 

We are caught between an old system that no longer works and a new one that is trying to emerge. In recent times more and more people have grappled with articulating, what they see as the new economic model, with increasing confidence and detail. I believe that the ‘three C’s’ (the change-maker, cooperative and collaborative movements) now offer a credible alternative to the traditional economic system. I’ll try to do that belief justice throughout this article in a way that is neither too philosophical or too niche to really have an impact. 

 

To understand the emergent new economy you’ll have to first expel, from your mind, the polarized socialism versus capitalism debate. Those –isms have been outdated and outmoded. By the same token we don’t want to throw these old systems away as they hold some fundamental DNA that has to be recycled into our new economy.

When was the last time you saw Greeks protesting in support of  the government? Exactly this is happening right now outside the Parliament with crowds of people flocking to Syntagma Square and raise their voice against the decision of the European Central Bank, to stop accepting Greek bonds as collateral for granting liquidity.

Boekvoorstelling 'De wereld redden'

Boekvoorstelling 'De wereld redden' | P2P search for New Politics & Economics | Scoop.it

De wereld redden. Met peer-to-peer naar een postkapitalistische samenleving "
Michel Bauwens en Jean Lievens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organisatie is in handen van Oikos en Uitgeverij Hautekiet. Event is gratis maar registreren moet via http://oikos.be/denktank/evenementen-denktank/boekvoorstelling-de-wereld-redden.

 

Onze samenleving steunt op het absurde idee van materiële overvloed en immateriële schaarste. We doen alsof de planeet oneindig is en plegen er dermate roofbouw op dat het overleven van de menselijke soort in gevaar komt. Anderzijds bouwen we via auteursrechten en patenten artificiële muren rond menselijke kennis om sharing en samenwerking zo moeilijk mogelijk te maken.

 

Het peer-to-peermodel, geïnspireerd door open source, wil die logica omdraaien. Michel Bauwens ziet in nieuwe fenomenen zoals de samenwerkingseconomie, peer-to-peernetwerken, open source, crowdsourcing, fab labs, microfabrieken, de makersbeweging en stadslandbouw een weg naar een postkapitalistische samenleving, waarbij de markt zal onderworpen worden aan het algemeen belang.

 

Net zoals het feodalisme ontstond binnen de schoot van de Romeinse slavenmaatschappij en het kapitalisme binnen het feodalisme, groeit ook binnen het kapitalisme het embryo van een nieuwe samenleving. Om de wereld te redden, dringt zich een herlokalisering van de productie op en een uitbreiding van globale samenwerking op vlak van kennis, code en design.

Op 15 oktober stelt Michel Bauwens zijn boek voor. De dagen daarna volgen nog verschillende activiteiten in heel Vlaanderen.

 

Michel Bauwens werkte onder meer voor BP en Belgacom, waar hij eBusiness strateeg was. Hij richtte twee internetbedrijven op en is stichter van de Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives. Hij is voorzitter van de Technology/ICT working group, Hangwa Forum (Beijing, Sichuan) en schrijft onder meer voor Al Jazeera English. Vorig jaar werd hij door het Post Growth Institute als enige Belg opgenomen in de lijst van de 100 meest inspirerende personen voor een duurzame toekomst.

 

Jean Lievens was redacteur van Vonk en freelance journalist, gespecialiseerd in financiële berichtgeving en B2B-copywriting voor onder meer ING, Delta Lloyd en G4S. Momenteel is hij ambtenaar voor de stad Brussel. Hij is een actieve blogger (revolutieresolutie.skynetblogs.be en De Wereld Morgen) en redacteur van online knipselkranten over P2P. Zijn peer2politics is volgens Michel Bauwens een der beste in zijn soort.
