Three Competing Societal and Economic Models in the Age of Peer Production

Three Models of Value Creation, Redistribution and Economic Development.

This is written as a framework for the project in Ecuador, to frame a transition to a open commons knowledge-based society. It will be continously improved around the following structure:

  • value extraction models both material and immaterial
  • dominant class structure
  • knowledge logics
  • solidarity models
  • social movements and balance of power
  • dominant model of capitalism / dominant alternatives
  • forms of democracy / participation

The key idea is to distinguish the condition of the p2p/commons/sharing practices under the dominance of financialised cognitive capitalism, and a more genuine civical/ethical model centered around the commons.
