Jeremy Corbyn: What’s his economic plan? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

There is though a flaw in in his explanation of what could be called Classical Quantitative Easing, yes, the money did flow to the banks, yes, it did then flow into the stock market, into commodities like gold, but it did not trickle down into the real economy. The only beneficiaries were the rich who got richer and the bankers with bigger bonuses.

Technology Networks - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Metropolitan local authorities under the control of the Left of the Labour Party in the early 1980s were supportive towards socially useful production. Some provided space for community workshops. Activity at the Greater London Council in the form of its Technology Networks was the most intensive in this respect; though other workshops included the Unit for the Development of Alternative Products (UDAP) in Coventry and the Sheffield Centre for Product Development and Technological Resources (SCEPTRE).

Alexis Holwerda's curator insight, August 27, 10:35 PM

Africa is expanding its horizons with new energy sources. They are connective villages to the internet and to renewable solar energy. This is much cheaper than the kerosene they were using.


With these new technologies, Africans will be able to participate much more in international relations because they will be more interconnected to the world. This is also giving them more economic opportunities, and is called the "Third Industrial Revolution." In addition to more opportunities, it is improving the lives of many Africans who had previously not had any access to electricity.


Personally, I feel this is a great development. It is helping to bring Africa up to the level of MDCs and bringing them out from the dark (they have electricity now... it's not dark... ha.) It is also giving them an opportunity to improve their lives by giving them a chance to have their own businesses and be connected to the world.

Tim O'Reilly on explaining the dominance of the new on demand monopolies | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The coordination costs of the taxicab business have generally kept it local. According to the Taxicab, Limousine and ParaTransit Association, the US taxi industry consists of approximately 6,300 companies operating 171,000 taxicabs and other vehicles. More than 80% of these are small companies operating anywhere between one and 50 taxis. Only 6% of these companies have more than 100 taxicabs. Only in the largest of these companies do multiple drivers use the same taxicab, with regular shifts. 85% of taxi and limousine drivers are independent contractors. In many cases, the taxi driver pays a rental fee (typically $120/$130 per day) to the owner of the cab (who in turn pays a dispatch and branding fee to the branded dispatch service) and keeps what he or she makes after paying that daily cost. The total number of cabs is limited by government-granted licenses, sometimes called medallions.
