Social Capital and Collaborative Consumption Leigh Drogen

Social Capital and Collaborative Consumption Leigh Drogen | Diversity and Innovation | Scoop.it

The reason this is happening now, is because of connectivity. We’ve reached an inflection point in technology that allows the world to become a village again as she says in the video. We are natural sharers. Before modern economic theory, each of us instinctively understood that we were each better at doing different things, and by division of labor the whole group could have more. The problem is, we got away from sharing, and wasted resources in the process, it wasn’t natural. We still have our division of labor, but we don’t share resources well within the group, and each of us has suffered because of it.

Yes, “thank you” is an essential, everyday part of family dinners, trips to the store, business deals, and political negotiations. That might be why so many people have dismissed gratitude as simple, obvious, and unworthy of serious attention.
