What is the answer to ending the suffering of the most marginalised people? Our only hope is a ceaseless demand for guaranteeing Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which could eventually open the door to a global basic income for all, writes Sonja Scherndl.  Most of us are aware of the problems...
Poorer countries routinely put more resources at the disposal of donor country interests than they receive in foreign aid—but it doesn't have to be this way. The idea of implementing a system of global taxation is gaining ground, and may open up a pathway towards an authentic system of redistribution across national...
The Republic of Ecuador, currently chair of the largest single coalition of developing countries at the United Nations, is reviving a longstanding campaign for the creation of an inter-governmental UN tax body and the elimination of tax havens and illicit financial flows.

Wahre Sharing Economy repräsentiert das Ende einer Ära, definiert von Streben nach Gewinn und wettbewerbsfähigem Eigeninteresse, während ein neues Zeitalter des zwischenstaatlichen Austausches und der Zusammenarbeit in einer Welt, die solch eine Fülle von Finanzkapital und verfügbaren Ressourcen hat, erst durch die...
A new publication by The Great Transition Initiative provides an inspiring vision of a more equal, vibrant and sustainable civilisation.

Is it a viable prospect to create a direct mechanism for transferring a universal basic income to all the world’s people? Not before we bring about a huge united voice of ordinary citizens in favour of sharing the world’s resources to end hunger and life-threatening poverty once and for all, argues STWR. The...
A real circular economy would expand the definition of the circular economy to one where its operating system is regenerative not only towards nature, but also people; meaning wealth is equitably circulated and shared. A new report by Sharon Ede explains how relocalising production with not-for-profit business models...
We need to disavow ourselves of our misplaced trust in robotisation, and instead focus our energies on creating a truly fair and sustainable economy. The leisure society will only be achieved if we learn to live more locally within our planetary means - for there is enough stuff to go around already, if only we shared...
The New Economics Foundation has long made the case for a richer relationship with 'stuff' that can help turn the tables on our abusive consumer culture. The good news is that a new form of materialism is already emerging; everywhere people are beginning to make, do, share and get involved, writes Ruth Potts....
World Basic Income (WBI) is a campaign organisation with a proposal to achieve greater social justice through the provision of unconditional cash transfers. World basic income differs from national-level basic income initiatives in that it would gather money at the global level, and distribute it to every person...

Can we get back to the equalizing, 'share-the-wealth' policies of the post-war era? Of course we can — the obstacles are political, not economic, writes Robert Kuttner. The latest study of deepening inequality by three of the most careful scholars of the subject, Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saens, and Gabriel Zucman,...
Vincent Lassalle is a political researcher who is currently undertaking a 9 month long study focused on the question of post-industrial transition. During his recent time in London, UK, he visited STWR to learn more about our work and perspectives on international economic sharing as central to the process of global...
The Fight Inequality Alliance aims to bring together activists and organisations to tackle inequality globally and within all countries. The Alliance stands together to build a world of greater equality – where all people’s rights are respected and fulfilled, a world of shared prosperity, opportunity and dignity,...
La verdadera economía del compartir representa el fin de los viejos modos definidos por la búsqueda del lucro y el interés propio competitivo, mientras que una nueva era de compartir y cooperación intergubernamentales sólo puede comenzar a través del canal de acabar con el hambre en un mundo que tiene tanta abundancia...
