Shareable: How to Map the New Economy in Your City | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Groups all over the world are resisting the status quo of profit maximization by putting society's happiness, health and the Earth first. This work, though, is often overshadowed by big business with its bloated advertising budgets and economic monopolization, which makes alternatives seem insubstantial if not nonexistent.

Erik Olin Wright on the Role of the State, the Market and Civil Society | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Erik Olin Wright, from a 2007 text in ‘Compass Points': “Capitalism would be an unreproducible and chaotic social order if the state played the minimalist role specified in the libertarian fantasy, but it would also, as Polanyi argued, function much more erratically if civil society was absorbed into the economy as a fully commodified and …

Small Loans, Big Problems: The False Promise of Microfinance - Local Futures

Small Loans, Big Problems: The False Promise of Microfinance - Local Futures | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Ever since Bill Clinton and the World Bank enthusiastically embraced the microfinance concept in the 1990s, we at Local Futures have been skeptical of its benefits, seeing it as part of a whole package of “market solutions” to our social and environmental crises that, in the long run, make things much worse. We have pointed out that these loans often target rural populations who were not previously in debt: they represent the long arm of capitalism reaching into remote rural areas, encouraging a shift away from dependence on the land and the local community, towards competition in a resource-depleting global economy.

Is anyone building a municipal sharing economy tool?

Is anyone building a municipal sharing economy tool? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This is a new tool, just in concept a municipal #SharingEconomy value creation metric analysis tool. How much does Airbnb (as just one example) contribute to community wealth, compared to the loss of tax revenue on hotel rooms, and construction cost? What does that do to the cost of a mortgage in that town? Does what Arun Sundaran calls the gig sector, aid in home retention; are there fewer foreclosures in towns where AirBnB has taken hold? How much does AirbnB contribute to carbon footprint by its circular economy method of shared use of bedroom space vs the energy, carbon and other costs of construction? How much does it or could it contribute to community resilience and social capital create if coupled with the benefits packages being developed  by Peers.Org, for insurance and other job like benefits for the service providers in the on demand economy, ?

Happy Birthday Copyright Bombshell: New Evidence Warner Music Previously Hid Shows Song Is Public Domain | Techdirt | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Last minute evidence that completely turns a legal case on its head doesn't come about all that often -- despite what you see in Hollywood movies and TV shows. The discovery process in a lawsuit generally reveals most of the evidence revealed to everyone pretty early on. And yet... in the high profile lawsuit over the copyright status of the song "Happy Birthday," the plaintiffs "Good Morning to You Productions" (who are making a documentary about the song and are arguing that the song is in the public domain) have popped up with a last minute filing, saying they have just come across evidence that the song is absolutely in the public domain
