The UK could be the world capital of the sharing economy if we take these steps - CITY A.M. | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

EVERYONE seems to be talking about the “sharing economy”, and while this may not be a model that will work for every industry, it is a trend that requires attention. So much so that, in September 2014, the UK government raised the need for an independent report to examine the social and economic potential of the sharing economy, and I was asked to head it up. Over 1,000 people responded to the call for evidence and, ultimately, the subsequent findings represent the beginning of what I believe will make the UK the sharing economy capital of the world.

PiggyBlog: From the sharing economy to some slippery monopoly #UberGate

PiggyBlog: From the sharing economy to some slippery monopoly #UberGate | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
As an entrepreneur in the collaborative economy, I am passionate about Uber. The American company offers a real time carpooling service using a mobile app, and is probably the ultimate example of connecting individuals based on peer to peer. When Uber landed in Brussels, I was both a fan and a militant (afterwards, not being a major taxi customer, I only could test the service twice during this short period.) I like new ideas that offer practical and innovative solutions. Now, many aspiring entrepreneurs pride themselves in being “the Uber of this” or “the Uber of that” (from the simple exchange of services, to the lending of tools, or even ironing). Uber is one of those comets that grows like crazy and which is backed by major Californian investors (ranging from Google Ventures to Ashton Kutcher). The company is spreading every day from city to city across all five continents, and is diversifying its services. Last week, the giant was still evaluated at 18 billion dollars. This is certain to displease taxis, criticized mainly for their poor business attitude.

Monsanto Law: Monsanto claims ownership of seeds in Ghana | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
If you are a farmer, you save your seeds, even more so if you are a subsistence farmer. It is part of what you do, it is what farmers have done for generations. Save the seeds from the harvest, selecting out the best seeds from the best crops, sowing the seeds, looking after the crop, harvesting the crop, saving the seeds, and so the cycle repeats itself season after season.
