Loved this video. My two favorites are that @mbauwens brings a great perspective on issues lwhat good and bad currency design is and uses the case of bitcoins and the last part on how we can create peer to peer businesses for a thriving economy.  Good 20 mins watch.

How did Iceland recover? Report from Davos | Beyond Money

How did Iceland recover? Report from Davos | Beyond Money | Value Creation in the Next Economy | Scoop.it

In this three-minute interview, Iceland’s President Olafur Ragnar Grimson explains that their recovery from the economic crisis was based on actions that went against the orthodox prescriptions–Let the banks fail, introduce currency controls, provide support for the poor, don’t push austerity measures. Why are banks the “holy churches of the economy?”

Let us watch the experiment in Iceland, I see the leaders in a model that creates prosperity for the citizens and not profits for big banksters. May they shine the light on what is possible in a new type of economy!

Airbnb And The Unstoppable Rise Of The Share Economy - Forbes

Airbnb And The Unstoppable Rise Of The Share Economy - Forbes | Value Creation in the Next Economy | Scoop.it
Consumers are building multibillion-dollar marketplaces for sharing cars, homes, bicycles, driveways and tools. In looking for a better deal and extra income, they're reshaping business.

Crystal Arnold's insight:

The sharing economy gets some mainstream recognition, its just a more intelligent way to coordinate our actions and things.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, January 24, 2013 4:48 PM

I collected resources on "the sharing economy" for years (http://delicious.com/hrheingold/sharing_economy) and Joi Ito (now director of the Media Lab) and I tried and failed to sell a book proposal about the idea six or seven years ago. But technologically mediated markets are now making it possible. This isn't about socialism. It's about using the knowledge and coordination power enabled by digital networks to extract value for ourselves and others from what we know, own, and do in our self-interest.

Crystal Arnold's insight:

Essential to look at this level of how value is created and the entire ownership model. This provides some good models and projects. Its important to acknolwedge how we can access things without ownership -- and all be wealthier!

Very informative article that offers a wide view of the potentials for humanity if we are to look closely to what ownership really means. We know we can have access to things without owning them. We also know that we can own different. Own together and be Response-able for what we own as a collective and individuals.  

 

As part of this article you will find great models and projects.

Shareable: Collaborative Consumption is Overrated

Shareable: Collaborative Consumption is Overrated | Value Creation in the Next Economy | Scoop.it

"I still think collaborative consumption is overrated compared to the other side of the sharing economy coin: collaborative creation.

 

The true potential of a networked, peer-to-peer economy is just starting to show with the maker movement. And it's not just about what we can consume together, it's about what we can create together."


Via Sepp Hasslberger
Crystal Arnold's insight:

We are being invited to use our collective intelligence to create, this is where there is an incredible amount of untapped potential. Clearly, meeting our needs through more sharing (collaborative consumption) uses similar skills, and also provides a stable foundation for making a brighter future for generations to come.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, February 2, 2013 10:29 AM

If we consider a sliding scale that goes from being at the mercy of others (being the effect) to actually producing something useful (being the cause) then consuming, even in collaboration with others, is very much on the effect side of the scale. To be on the cause end of that scale, making (which means inventing, creating, constructing something) is the way to go.
