Collective Intelligence vs. The Wisdom of Crowds | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It’s an idea he’s been promoting for some time but I only recently had a chance to read through all of his discussion. He starts by describing the growing academic interest that has been generated by James Surowiecki’s The Wisdom of Crowds and then suggesting some of the challenges of applying these concepts in a real world context: -

A ‘basic income’ system could be feasible in Spain, but only by reframing the current debate

A ‘basic income’ system could be feasible in Spain, but only by reframing the current debate | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many other renowned economists, such as John K. Galbraith, Robert Theobald and Anthony B.

Several governments and parliaments across the European Union, including the European Parliament, have requested official reports on the concept over recent decades. All this illustrates that while the idea of a basic income is contestable and would potentially be difficult to implement, it cannot be regarded simply as a utopian idea backed by those on the fringes of the political mainstream.
