New Rules for the New Economy

New Rules for the New Economy | Permaculture, Philosophy & a sustainable future | Scoop.it

1) Embrace the Swarm. As power flows away from the center, the competitive advantage belongs to those who learn how to embrace decentralized points of control.

2) Increasing Returns. As the number of connections between people and things add up, the consequences of those connections multiply out even faster, so that initial successes aren't self-limiting, but self-feeding.

3) Plentitude, Not Scarcity. As manufacturing techniques perfect the art of making copies plentiful, value is carried by abundance, rather than scarcity, inverting traditional business propositions.

4) Follow the Free. As resource scarcity gives way to abundance, generosity begets wealth. Following the free rehearses the inevitable fall of prices, and takes advantage of the only true scarcity: human attention.

5) Feed the Web First. As networks entangle all commerce, a firm's primary focus shifts from maximizing the firm's value to maximizing the network's value. Unless the net survives, the firm perishes.

6) Let Go at the Top. As innovation accelerates, abandoning the highly successful in order to escape from its eventual obsolescence becomes the most difficult and yet most essential task.

7) From Places to Spaces. As physical proximity (place) is replaced by multiple interactions with anything, anytime, anywhere (space), the opportunities for intermediaries, middlemen, and mid-size niches expand greatly.

8) No Harmony, All Flux. As turbulence and instability become the norm in business, the most effective survival stance is a constant but highly selective disruption that we call innovation.

9) Relationship Tech. As the soft trumps the hard, the most powerful technologies are those that enhance, amplify, extend, augment, distill, recall, expand, and develop soft relationships of all types.

10) Opportunities Before Efficiencies. As fortunes are made by training machines to be ever more efficient, there is yet far greater wealth to be had by unleashing the inefficient discovery and creation of new opportunities.

11th Dimension Team's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:08 PM

Commercial beehives pollinate over a third of [North] America’s crops and that web of nourishment encompasses everything from fruits like peaches, apples, cherries, strawberries and more, to nuts like California almonds, 90 percent of which are helped along by the honeybees.


Without this pollination, you could kiss those crops goodbye, to say nothing of the honey bees produce or the flowers they also fertilize’.


This article discusses the arguments and seriousness pertaining to the massive deaths and the decline of Bee colonies in North America. As well, it will shed light on a worldwide hunger issue that will have an economical and ecological impact in the very near future.

[A MUST SEE VIDEO] Halo Films Choice Point Showreel

Choice Point provides a scientific, self-help and human story platform to help people transform their lives for the better while at the same time showing them how to contribute to transforming the world in beneficial ways. Its mission is to make an impact at the individual level, which will in turn help to transform the world at a global level. It is based on the theory that by aligning with purpose, we each can help to bring the world into better alignment for a positive, peaceful future in which we can more easily solve the problems that currently beset the world

Tony Franciskato's comment, May 29, 2012 9:07 AM
I love the idea of aligning with a purpose but of course I have questions when I hear certain things like… "What does it mean to 'Transcend self interest'?" It is like thinking it necessary to "moving beyond" the need to have blood coursing through my veins. "Creating relationships where everyone is getting richer" sounds like a situation where people trade goods and services freely and exchange value for value. What a great idea! It could be like a free market where men trade without taking advantage or being taken advantage of. Seems if men understood self interest as something not needing transcendence but needing acceptance as a fact of life the rest may follow.
Sakis Koukouvis's comment, May 29, 2012 10:09 AM
Thank you Tony Franciskato. I agree that these phrases are mere a positive thinking and not so a practical solution for a daily life. But we need inspiration to overcome our self-interest and I believe that this video is opening that "door".

Will Drought Cause the Next Blackout? | New York Times

Will Drought Cause the Next Blackout? | New York Times | Permaculture, Philosophy & a sustainable future | Scoop.it

We're now in the midst of the nation’s most widespread drought in 60 years, stretching across 29 states and threatening farmers, their crops and livestock. But there is another risk as water becomes more scarce. Power plants may be forced to shut down, and oil and gas production may be threatened.

 

Our energy system depends on water. About half of the nation’s water withdrawals every day are just for cooling power plants. In addition, the oil and gas industries use tens of millions of gallons a day, injecting water into aging oil fields to improve production, and to free natural gas in shale formations through hydraulic fracturing. Those numbers are not large from a national perspective, but they can be significant locally.
