Attempt to describe and contrast characteristics and features of an old and a new economy (society/paradigm) and discuss the question whether the Share/Collaborative Economy could be a possible bridge and means of transformation from the former to the later (slides 14 - 24). Preceded by slides dealing with the components, aspects and implication of the collaborative economy and concluding with slides explaining OuiShare.

  • Old Economy vs. New Economy Old Economy Market / Trade Economy New Economy (Collaborative? Cocreative? P2P? Care?) Push economy Hard way lot of WOM Pull economy Smart way lot of WOW Greed Economy Take as much as you can. Give as little as possible Need Economy Give as much as you can. Take what you need. Extractive / Explotive / Ego-centric Externalising costs (Zombie / Fossil Economy) Additive / Contributive / Eco-centric Holistic view internalising costs focus on products: what comes in. Getting richer Focus on people: what goes out. Being better off / getting smarter Tendency: inequality, homogenization Tendency: more equality, diversification Transition: Movements: Share/Collaborative Econ Solidarity Econ Gemeinwohl Econ - TT Enables people to get efficiently what they need from each other
  • Conception of the World Homo economicus Homo collaborans Scarcity Abundance (Credit-financed) Money to determine, exchange & capture value / value chain Focus: quantity (altruistic) gift? (asynchronic) reciprocity? Value networks mesh Focus: quality Private ownership Default: exclusion Systemic enclosure / closed / silos / Common ownership: Commons Default: inclusion Openness/transparency, Transaction - Products Connection - People Transition: Better Access, better use, better distribution complementary currencies time banks - Barter mutual exchange Shared assetts access trumps ownership Opening up, fading/dissolving boundaries, connection Service Marketplace - Platform
  • Aspect: Ownership
  • Planet & Environment Growing Exploitation Quickening disposal - Increasing levels of (toxic) waste Closed cycle Linear (-> scarcity) Circular (-> no scarcity) Degenaration Regeneration Great Pacific Garbage Patch Poisoning of food chain 19-year-old Boyan Slat Im going to do something to clean up the oceans 1.174.000 $ raised from 23245 backers Picture: cc Wikipedia Picture: Transition: Sustainability Resilience Better use & higher utilization of assetts & less waste

Education (what people do to you) Learning (what you do to yourself) Motivation Default: extrinsic regulation/control/punishment/incentives Default: intrinsic (authentic) Transition: Two directional (roles) (marketplace) Blurring grey areas disruption Collapse / Concurrence of (certain) dichotomies

Product cycle = 7 days / whole car can be dismantled & re-build with a few hours TRADITIONAL/CENTRALIZED/VERTICAL AUTOMOTIVE Product cycle = 7 years is inefficient, because the cost to make change and innovate is HUGE.
