Elisabet Sahtouris

From the roots of the word Economy as the 'Rules of the household' into a whole fluent explanation of how we should look at nature's cero waste economy to design or economic system. She says -We never really had a science of economics-

 

She ends with speaking about a gift currency of how money is issued to make the transaction happens but disappears afterwards. Highest evolution is a gifted currency.

Tiny structure gives big boost to solar power – Princeton Engineering

Tiny structure gives big boost to solar power – Princeton Engineering | Emergence of a New Economy | Scoop.it
Princeton researchers have found a simple and economical way to nearly triple the efficiency of organic solar cells, the cheap and flexible plastic devices that many scientists believe could be the future of solar power.
The researchers, led by electrical engineer Stephen Chou, were able to increase the efficiency of the solar cells 175 percent by using a nanostructured "sandwich" of metal and plastic that collects and traps light.

How the Technology of the Collaborative Economy All Works Together

How the Technology of the Collaborative Economy All Works Together | Emergence of a New Economy | Scoop.it
If you've used Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, oDesk, Kickstarter or Lending Club, you've participated in the Collaborative Economy, ever wondered what's powering it behind the shiny user interface on the app?...
Wout-Jan Koridon's insight:

Nice article. IMHO, the new economy also encompasses collaboration where non material resources are offered, exchanged and put into effect. 
Especially where needed & possible new (sustainable) products and services call for collective, actionable intelligence to make it happen.
For this dimension of the new or collaborative economy - apart from innovative methods and process of engagement and conversation - the technology stack also includes elements like smart cloud collaboration platforms like TallyFox and smart internet search agents. I.e. the co-creation economy.
In addition to that, an Internet of Things might be considered as a collaborative technology economy ...
Wonder where the future 3D printing technology fits in.
