Overview of P2P Foundation Proposals - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"So what might a commons-based economy actually look like in its broadest dimensions, and how might we achieve it? My colleague Michel Bauwens of the P2P Foundation offers a remarkably thoughtful and detailed explanation in a just-released YouTube talk, produced by FutureSharp. It’s not really a video – just Michel’s voiceover and a simple schematic chart – but the 20-minute talk does a great job of sketching the big-picture strategies that must be pursued if we are going to invent a new type of post-capitalist economy.

Three proposed governance hacks for making peer production into a real economic and social system | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Michel Bauwens: (also published in an edited form in the Winter 2015 issue of STIR) Capitalism wasn’t always an organic and dominant system. Before it achieved its status as a full mode of production, i.e. as a coherent way to create and diffuse value, as a form of society and civilization, it needed to hack …

A Complete Systems Approach to Global Problems

A Complete Systems Approach to Global Problems | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
After reading a discussion on the Systems Thinking list, it seems clear that there is a lot of interest on this topic matched by a lot of confusion.Firstly, systems thinking means approaching a problem from a higher-level perspective, much like economists look at the economy:  detached and analytical.  Unfortunately, it's prone to the same problems of that field:  systemic errors amplifying to global problems due to incorrect premises (e.g. the unsolved financial crisis of the last decade).Secon
