The "Sharing Economy" Has Come Of Age [UPDATED] | Revolution

The "Sharing Economy" Has Come Of Age [UPDATED] | Revolution | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

A big congratulations to the team at Zipcar, on the completion of its acqusition by Avis Budget Group.  We're proud of the role that Revolution has played in the growth of the sharing economy from a concept that many were skeptical about to one that is gracing the covers of major global magazines.  Below is a post I wrote earlier this year on my belief that the sharing economy has come of age - a belief I think is even more true today.

Institutions for Open Source – And the current State of Open Source

Institutions for Open Source – And the current State of Open Source | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The driving question of this article is: How to push open source development or – if you will – the open source movement, support its growth and build up its relevance. The approach here is to look at open source with the eyes of the “New Institutional Economics” (NIE) and find out, what institutions we have in open source, how can we improve them and which one are missing.

Marxism and Ecology: Common Fonts of a Great Transition

Marxism and Ecology: Common Fonts of a Great Transition | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Socialist thought is re-emerging at the forefront of the movement for global ecological and social change. In the face of the planetary emergency, theorists have unearthed a powerful ecological critique of capitalism at the foundations of Marx’s materialist conception of history. This has led to a more comprehensive conception of socialism rooted in Marx’s analysis of the rift in “the universal metabolism of nature” and his vision of sustainable human development. This work resonates with other approaches for understanding and advancing a Great Transition. Such a social and ecological transformation will require a two-step strategy. First, we must mount struggles for radical reforms in the present that challenge the destructive logic of capital. Second, we must build the broad movement to carry out the long revolutionary transition essential for humanity’s continued development and survival. - See more at: http://www.greattransition.org/publication/marxism-and-ecology#sthash.M8zbagkN.dpuf
