Exploring the Horizon of Social, Political and Economic Change: An Interview with R.C. Smith by John Wisniewski (Part 2) | Heathwood Press

Exploring the Horizon of Social, Political and Economic Change: An Interview with R.C. Smith by John Wisniewski (Part 2) | Heathwood Press | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The demands of sustainable social-historical change are so complex - we need input from all disciplines, we need radical democratic and alternative philosophical foundations. We can’t possibly think that we can just overthrow the system – to suddenly remove presents structures and systems – and then some Utopia will suddenly emerge. It will take a lot of healing and support to move beyond capitalism’s coercive legacy (psychologically, emotionally, relationally, socially, epistemologically and so on). To suddenly destroy the capitalist system will not make its coercive legacy disappear. That is why, again, I think that seeing emancipatory change as a transitory process is crucial. Indeed, it will take a lot of participation and grassroots organisation, and it will require different systems to support this in both the short and long term. I am reminded, for instance, of a great paper by Michel Bauwens and Vasilis Kostakis titled From the <em>Communism of Capital to Capital for the Commons: Towards an Open Co-operativism</em>, which highlights a similar transitional approach to a post-capitalist economy that I’ve alluded above, combining both commons-oriented open peer production models with common ownership and governance models, such as those of co-operatives (i.e., worker self-directed enterprises, economic democracy, etc.) and the solidarity economic models. The idea here is basically to create a “proto-counter-economy”, which, again, could support the development and expansion of alternative (political, social and economic) space and assist in the greater multidimensional sociohistorical transition. There is something fundamentally significant about this concept."

EconoMonitor : Great Leap Forward » BOOM BUST BOOM: MINSKY AT THE MOVIES | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I highly recommend a movie to be released next year (that is, the year that begins next week). Terry Jones, of Monty Python fame, is one of the key developers of the film. It is on the Global Financial Crisis, but also provides a quick history of bubbles and crashes. It is highly entertaining and as good as any that I’ve seen on the crisis.

The Economic Realms: The Shadow Market

The Economic Realms: The Shadow Market | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Do you ever get the feeling that something's going on in the global economy that we don't fully understand? That while Americans have been focused on fixing our wounded economy and worrying about our lost jobs and battered bank accounts, the world around us was changing in important but nearly imperceptible ways? You'd be right. It did. Enormous economic changes are taking place around the globe, many of them hidden in plain sight, others just plain hidden—kept from the press, the government, and, most of all, the everyday investor. Ever since 2008, when the global financial system melted down, the economic world as we know it has been flipped on its head. Countries and corporations that once dominated the planet have been decimated. Meanwhile, other powers have risen in their place and asserted themselves globally. And although the American economy appears to be recovering somewhat, and a handful of us are beginning to feel more confident about the future, the truth is that we won't be returning to "normal" any time soon.
