Rachel Botsman: The currency of the new economy is trust

There's been an explosion of collaborative consumption -- web-powered sharing of cars, apartments and skills.

 

Other resources via The CollaborActions Network are available to some UK small businesses - we're just building the network, making sure that we have the right balance of services and skills on offer.  Individuals can apply for an e-wallet or purse and start using Action Pounds immediately.

Collaborative consumption as a basis for a reputation economy is a remarkable insight to where we might all be heading. Who will build the Reputation dashboard to measure the worth of your reputation, intentions, capabilities and values across communities and marketplaces? Intriguing presentation.
Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 29, 2012 10:09 PM

This is another great TED Talk. I first heard the phrase 'reputation trail' while watching this video. I've since become intrigued by the concept of collaborative consumption and online trust.

Alternative Currencies Grow in Popularity

Alternative Currencies Grow in Popularity | The CollaborActions Network | Scoop.it
Most of us take for granted that those rectangular green slips of paper we keep in our wallets are inviolable: the physical embodiment of value. But alternative forms of money have a long history and appear to be growing in popularity. It's not merely barter or primitive means of exchange like seashells or beads. Beneath the financial radar, in hip U.S. towns or South African townships, in shops, markets and even banks, people throughout the world are exchanging goods and services via thousands of currency types that look nothing like official tender.
