peer-to-peer, the sharing economy, disruptive technology and empathy

peer-to-peer, the sharing economy, disruptive technology and empathy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

There’s a global paradigm shift taking place, and it’s embodied in peer-to-peer lateral networks, the sharing economy, disruptive technology and an increased human capacity for empathy. It’s redefining how we communicate, work, form communities and create wealth. Through the workings of technology, the collaborative economy and the commons, it signals the democratization of social and economic relationships. Relationships forged through the sharing and the exchanging of information through these networks transcend GDPs, cultures and borders. It is a reality in which people connect and engage in transactions based on common interests and needs without a centralized mechanism of control. The impact of peer-to-peer on our economy and communication systems marks the formation of a new socioeconomic paradigm. It is a powerful dynamic force driven by technology and necessity. It is a paradigm being born out of great disruption; still in its infancy, it is a vulnerable and a fragile world.
