Democratic Money and Capital for the Commons: Reflections from the Deep Dive - Commons Transition Wiki

Democratic Money and Capital for the Commons: Reflections from the Deep Dive - Commons Transition Wiki | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In September last year, I spent a month seeing if I could survive in the sharing economy in London. It was hard. However, one of the reasons it was so hard was I was traveling. I only had a backpack and laptop with me, so I could not leverage the two profitable areas of the sharing economy -- stuff and space.
