P2P Foundation - Crowdfunding Mutual Aid Networks

P2P Foundation - Crowdfunding Mutual Aid Networks | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

“Mutual Aid Networks build the local economy so it works both for people like you and for the larger goal of community wealth building. Collaborative economic strategies – timebanking, price-based mutual credit, shared resources, and cooperative savings and lending pools – are now being used successfully as separate strategies around the world. By bringing these forms of community sharing and exchange into a comprehensive, complementary system, we have created a scalable model that is being used by the economically disadvantaged to make their communities more economically and socially resilient.”

The New Economics of Plentitude - In These Times

The New Economics of Plentitude - In These Times | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We need to shift the conversation about technology to one that takes into account labor markets, consumer patterns, and growth. Achieving sustainability requires new patterns of time use, which in turn alters the macroeconomic path of the economy. A trajectory of reductions in working hours both slows the untenable expansion of the economy and facilitates a transition from activities that destroy planetary and personal well-being to those that enhance it. I reject the mainstream assumption of a trade-off between protecting the environment and generating well-being for people. By contrast, I argue for a new way of living that is rich in those elements that will yield true well-being: time affluence, higher levels of self-providing, and social capital.

Climate Change Effects of Existing Common Wealth Trust Models | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

There is considerable interest among scientists and citizens to address climate stability. The role of common wealth funds are likely to be a very important component of effective transitional strategy, from a public support perspective. Most any program faces formidable resistance from industry which has sunk assets. Many people feel we don’t have comfortable margins of time enact meaningful policy. Foremost, a functional declining cap on GHG emissions is essential. A cohesive and pragmatic commitment to redirect commonwealth fund revenue is an absolute priority.

The Greening of Greece - the ecologic opportunity for Europe to embrace | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Greece's economic woes will never be solved by merely moving money around the banking system, writes Oliver Tickell. The lasting solution is to restore native forests to her barren hills and mountains, invest in large-scale solar power to energise Europe, and create an examplar of sustainable development for our global future.

Don't call it AI: Put away your fears of artificial intelligence. Assistive ... - Fast Company | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A lot of people I know now have an assistant named Clara. And each of these Claras is remarkably deft at cutting through that often unending chain of time-wasting emails that result from trying to make an appointment. This is not some strange fluke of social science. People named Clara are not preternaturally gifted meeting makers. Clara is a digital avatar, a special blend of data, machine learning, and algorithms that's backed by humans and designed to make sure you never have an embarrassing (or devastating) calendar failure. It's the product of a stealthy startup named, yep, Clara Labs. For less than $400 a month, anyone can have an assistant that is, as Clara promises, three times more reliable than a human. That puts Clara Labs at the forefront of a movement to augment our increasingly overwhelming daily lives with what I call assistive intelligence.
