Ideapod – Sharing Economy

Ideapod – The sharing economy will change the world

I agree that we need to move beyond market based ways of thinking. Markets are fundamentally based in scarcity and competition.

We have the technology to deliver abundance and cooperation.

As human beings our nature is highly evolved for both competition and cooperation – depending on context.
By using technology to deliver a context of universal abundance, we can incentivise universal cooperation.

For more detailed thoughts – check my blog – is as good a starting point as any.

Hi Mark

Synchronicity is a kinda yes and no thing with me.

When you look at it from a systems perspective, as a topology of possible spaces – and given that we both get these emails from ideapod which invoke a certain set of conceptual contexts, there are not that many areas in nearby conceptual space that are available (think in terms analogous to the work Stephen Wolfram has been doing).

And yes – most certainly – context is KING!!! in respect to how the human mind works. The higher the level of abstraction we can set as a guiding context, the more powerfully our subconscious systems can work for us.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see
