The priority after MoneyLab (2): redefining value within and beyond the money form

How can we arrive at common decisions on what is to be valued? Do we value personal bonds or do we value anonymity? Do we value community or do we value individuality? Is there a way to bridge these apparent opposites or dissolve their inherent contradictions, or will they forever be in conflict? What do we value about ourselves? What do we value about others? What do we value in nature, in work, in leisure? And how can we embed these values — both moral and economic — in the very money-form? Ultimately, if we are talking about creating a radically different society, the question of value will have to somehow be detached from money.

The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies - OpEdNews

The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies - OpEdNews | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The most prescient portrait of the American character and our ultimate fate as a species is found in Herman Melville's "Moby Dick." Melville makes our murderous obsessions, our hubris, violent impulses, moral weakness and inevitable self-destruction visible in his chronicle of a whaling voyage. He is our foremost oracle. He is to us what William Shakespeare was to Elizabethan England or Fyodor Dostoyevsky to czarist Russia.

John Cassidy: Is Surging Inequality Endemic to Capitalism?

John Cassidy: Is Surging Inequality Endemic to Capitalism? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
French economist Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-first Century” is a sweeping account of rising inequality. Reviewing the French edition of the book, which came out last year, Branko Milanovic, a former senior economist at the World Bank, called it “one of the watershed books in economic thinking.” The Economist said that it could change the way we think about the past two centuries of economic history. Piketty has written a book that nobody interested in a defining issue of our era can afford to ignore.

BBC Radio 4 - Thinking Allowed, The End of Capitalism; Reforming Capitalism | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Capitalism - renewal or decline? Laurie Taylor explores the future of our market driven economy. He's joined by David Harvey, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and Colin Crouch, Professor Emeritus in Sociology at the University of Warwick. Professor Harvey examines the contradictions at the heart of capitalism arguing that it's far from being the permanent or only way of organising human life. Professor Crouch, conversely, suggests that only Capitalism can provide us with an efficient and innovative economy but it should be re-shaped to better fit a social democratic society.

Open source business models - OpenCall Case Study - David Sealey | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many businesses consider using open source software as a means of keeping software license fees low. The selection of Drupal instead of Adobe CQ or Sitecore makes eminent sense if you’re primary intention is to keep the cost base low. Traditionally, the downside of open source was lack of commercial protection, professional support and a lack of roadmap. How things are changing.

The Predatory Practices of TVCable in Ecuador - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Apologies if this doesn't seem as a world-important matter deserving space, but I need to get this off my chest. It is both a warning to people who may want to engage in contracts here in Ecuador and an example of what citizens are facing with certain type of companies. My engagement with TVCable has been one nightmare from beginning to end, and never have I been able to find a single employee, by phone or physical, who was of any help to solving the problems.
