Towards a Commons based development model | ECC 2013 – Communication Platform

Towards a Commons based development model | ECC 2013 – Communication Platform | socially conscious new media | Scoop.it

“Before coming to issues of social justice and distribution of socially produced economic wealth (wealth measured in the traditional manner, in terms of GDP growth), there is an underlying and systemic problem, currently only partially hidden by the crisis, which affects the whole global north: the increase in overall economic wealth – albeit concentrated, polarized and not distributed – is matched by a general impoverishment of another kind. We are all becoming poorer in terms of relationships, poorer in time, poorer in “wellbeing” and quality of life, but also poorer in Commons and natural environment, that is, pauperized of the common basis of both life itself and all products/creations, be they material or non-material.
