” Bitcoin is too deflationary by nature to act as a widespread currency alternative to the dollar or the euro, its design can be used profitably in order to help the Eurozone’s member-states create euro-denominated electronic payment systems that help them, at least in the medium term, overcome the asphyxiating deflationary pressures imposed upon them by the Eurozone’s Gold Standard-like (and, indeed, Bitcoin-like) austerian design.”

Rejecting Austerity, Greece Squares Off with Its Creditors & Risks Future in Eurozone

Rejecting Austerity, Greece Squares Off with Its Creditors & Risks Future in Eurozone | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Less than a month after the anti-austerity Syriza party swept to victory in Greece, a major dispute has broken out between Greece’s new leaders and European finance ministers. On Monday, talks between Greece and its European creditors collapsed amid disagreement over the future of German-backed austerity. Greek negotiators rejected a deal to extend the terms of the current bailout scheme with no alterations to the austerity terms. Greece is reportedly now planning to submit a request to the euro

Open Co-ops: Inspiration, Legal Structures and Tools

Open Co-ops: Inspiration, Legal Structures and Tools | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In 2002 I described United Diversity as “a member owned and stakeholder governed network of mutual advantage.” In truth, it was aspirational. At the time, the flexible off-the-shelf legal structures and open source tools needed to make such a network a reality simply didn’t exist. Now they do. Co-ops that combine best practices from the international co-operative movement with best practices from the open source software and hardware communities are now possible. Soon anyone will be able to set up an Open Co-op and invite all their stakeholders to help finance, govern and organise the co-op online.

U.Lab: Seven Principles for Revolutionizing Higher Ed

U.Lab: Seven Principles for Revolutionizing Higher Ed | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Principled Leadership from Otto Scharmer "The current crisis in higher education has three characteristics: it's overpriced, out of touch (with society's real needs), and outdated (in its method and purpose). But the solution, a true 21st-century model of higher education, is already emerging: it's free (or accessible to everyone), it's empowering (putting the learner into the driver's seat of profound personal, professional, and societal renewal), and it's transformational (providing new learning environments that activate the deepest human capacities to create -- both individually and collectively)."

In defense of pragmatic ‘real utopias’

In defense of pragmatic ‘real utopias’ | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

So you’d assemble your media habitat, your personal lifeworld of autonomous reality-communities. It was understood that one of the possible lifeworlds you might build for yourself could be what we call a counterculture — a world whose meanings, values and definitions of reality are exactly counter to those of the broadcast. You could increasingly live the life of that world as The Build progressed, and it would bring you to the threshold of secession.”
