Neoliberals are killing us: The TED talk, techno-utopian, Thomas Friedman-economy is a lie

Neoliberals are killing us: The TED talk, techno-utopian, Thomas Friedman-economy is a lie | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The new economy favors forms of ownership and production that foster democracy and collaboration. You may recall George W. Bush’s blather about an ‘ownership society,’ a greedy scam to privatize Social Security and Medicare. For many years real reformers have been building a real ownership society. A familiar tool is the employee stock ownership plan. (ESOP) Often underestimated, today 11,000 ESOPs now employ nearly 11 million workers. Benefits range from higher job satisfaction and wages to improved productivity and in hard times, fewer layoffs.

Commonism - P2P Foundation

Commonism - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Nick Dyer-Witheford (2007) has proposed the term Commonism for a society where the basic social form of production are the Commons (while in capitalism, commodities are the basic social form). As the success of commons-based peer production shows, commons and peer production go together very well. We can therefore expect peer production to be the typical form of production in a commons-based society. Commonism would be a society where production is organized by people who cooperate voluntarily and on an equal footing for the benefit of all.

Civil Power and the Partner State

Civil Power and the Partner State | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I describe the crisis as the inability of our governments to protect the interests of their citizens. It is a crisis of legitimacy that is undermining the foundations of liberal democracy. Its most recent manifestation is the doctrine of austerity, and the rapid destruction of democratic civic life.

“State of the Soil”

“State of the Soil” | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I realize that in today’s fast world—fast food, fast money, fast information—a few weeks is a long time, a month an eternity, and who can even describe the immense duration of a fiscal quarter or a season. In today’s fast world, President Obama’s State of the Union is long gone. But in the spirit of all things slow, I’m going to go back all the way to the 1960s and 1970s, to a few Kennedys and things of a Presidential nature said back then. And then to the roots of the modern social investment movement, with a brief aside on Greek mythology and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names » The Rise of Religious Powers and the Failure of the Left in The Middle-East » Print

by SOUAD SHARABANI
Souad Sharabani: In the past three decades or so, Communists, trade unionists and secular nationalist movements like pan Arabism were replaced by religious and ethnic dividers as the forces that mobilize, galvanize and divide the people in the Middle-East. We see the same results in every country with different circumstances. What are the factors that explain the rise of religious fundamentalism and the decline of the left? I had the opportunity to sit with Ramzy Baroud to talk about these issues and more.
