New economic paradigms

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...
COP22 again highlighted the mismatch between illusive policymaking and the stark reality of global warming. As always, it was left to civil society groups to uphold a vision of global cooperation and economic sharing as the only path towards a sustainable future.  As 2016 draws to a close, we appear to be living in a...
The true sharing economy represents the end of the old ways defined by the pursuit of profit and competitive self-interest, while a new age of intergovernmental sharing and cooperation can only begin through the channel of ending hunger in a world that has such an abundance of financial capital and available resources...
On November 15, the first meeting of the European Commons Assembly (ECA) will take place in Brussels to discuss, showcase, and bring into practice the commons in and for Europe. By Marta Cillero, openDemocracy. The European economic crisis has been exacerbated by the lack of leadership in the continent. In addition...
The newly selected UN Secretary-General António Guterres should convene a world conference on tax avoidance and evasion, the abolition of tax havens and the protection of whistleblowers, urges the UN’s Independent expert on the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order, Alfred de Zayas. To tackle...
A rapidly growing global web of tax havens is one of the key drivers of global inequality, allowing some of the world’s super rich to pay no taxes or far less than they should.

Much has been made of the basic unfairness in how responsibility is shared between nations for ameliorating the refugee crisis. But the real question is the level of economic sharing that is needed to deal with its root causes, when the international response continues to be woefully inadequate. Following the first...
There are many questions still to be answered in the growing literature on the commons, central to which is the role of the state in respecting and fulfilling our basic socioeconomic rights. The ‘commons’ can become a very strong discourse and practice to re-order today’s progressive political forces, but does it mean...
Po tako številnih letih politične neaktivnosti lahko revščino v svetu obilja izkorenini samo množični izraz volje do dobrega navadnih ljudi na množičnih in nenehnih protestih v vseh državah sveta. Pojdimo torej po poti najmanjšega odpora in skupaj razglasimo že dolgo dogovorjene človekove pravice iz 25. člena Splošne...
What is common wealth? And how might we use it to build a more local, equitable and sustainable economy? Peter Barnes imagines an economy in which everyone benefits from a variety of co-inherited and co-created assets. There are many visions of what a new economy might look like: more local than global, more sharing...
Only when public conscience is sufficiently awakened to the critical needs of others, only when a huge swathe of the populace is standing up for the basic rights of the poorest among us – only then can we talk of a humanity that shares in any meaningful sense of the word.  At the end of last week, World Humanitarian...
In this thinkpiece for The Next System Project, David Korten sets out his 'natural case for sharing'. No-one has a right to own or control, for his or her exclusive private benefit, a share of assets essential to living far beyond any conceivable personal need, if this results in depriving others of a means to life,...
It’s time for a rational conversation on the norms, rights and duties of every citizen for global common goods: the shared resources that must be negotiated and organized by the world’s people themselves, writes James B. Quilligan. The devastating recession of 2008–09 and its volatile aftermath have focused everyone’...
At the close of UNCTAD's 14th session, a coalition of civil society organisations call for a new development model that is inclusive and socially just, in which governments uphold their obligations to provide social services and guarantee Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Statement from La Via...
