Opinion: Sharing Economy will harm economy but make life better | Centre for Social Innovation

Opinion: Sharing Economy will harm economy but make life better | Centre for Social Innovation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The Sharing Economy has become one of the buzz terms of the 21st century and business models that incorporate sharing are being praised for creating jobs and growing the economy. Sharing businesses are worth billions of dollars (Uber is currently valued at more than $17 billion) and despite legal challenges in Toronto and elsewhere, growth in this area is undeniable. While much of the benefits seem clear to those who use sharing services – save money, reduce environmental impact, more convenience, more community – a future economy with a prevalence of sharing will likely not grow our economy or create jobs but rather help shift it into something completely different.

Coworking Spaces Use Alternative Currencies To Magnify Community | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

These professional communities already serve as havens for people who believe in wacky ideas like career independence, collaboration, and the local economy. Coworkers are already in the habit of coming together to discuss ideas, share feedback, and leverage their people power into savings and innovation. The nature of coworking spaces and the people who choose to work in them makes these communities a fertile breeding ground for new types of collaborative consumption.

How 3D Printing and FabLabs are Ushering in Changes Within the Brazilian Economy

How 3D Printing and FabLabs are Ushering in Changes Within the Brazilian Economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

What do you know about FabLabs? Do you know anything about the stage of 3D printing in the developing countries? South America’s giant, Brazil, is the world’s seventh-largest economy with a population of almost 200 million. The middle class is growing, and millions have been lifted out of poverty. Over the past decade, the country has had strong growth driven by high commodity prices. However, for the past few years, Brazil has also grown unevenly. Public discontent was clearly made visible before and during the FIFA World Cup. Poor public services, high taxes, inflation, corruption, and antiquated and insufficient/lack of infrastructures, as well as slow economic expansion, are many reasons for this discontent. Nevertheless, the main issue is structural: “mostly-unfree” economic freedom. Rules, regulations, and laws limit economic choices and options. Brazil’s economy is the 118th freest in the 2015 Index. Thus, I was curious about the presence of 3D printing in such an economy.

Elinor Ostrom and Roger Parks Discuss the "Police Studies" | Grassroots Economic Organizing

In the 1970s, Elinor "Lin" Ostrom and her graduate students, including Roger Parks began researching how urban governments supplied basic services such as police protection in large metropolitan areas like St. Louis. Many urban governments had turned to city-county consolidation plans but Ostrom's studies showed that smaller could be—and often was—better.
