Invitation for all to attend the next talk in our new Global Futures
Speakers' Series, Friday, 9 December 2011, 12:00 13:00 in Lecture Theatre A at WSA:
Title: "P2P Economics = Shared Innovation Commons + Mutualist Phyles?"
Speaker: Michel Bauwens (founder of the Foundation of Peer-to-Peer Alternatives)
Patterns that prefigure a horizontalized future: If the current political economy's DNA is based on combining false material infinity with artificially maintained scarcity, can we imagine a future political economy where this polarity is reversed? Given an increasing amount of evidence collected by the P2P Foundation and other research collectives,
we believe that humanity is already actively preparing such a
transformation. We'll review the evidence for a major social phase transition. What will be the place of the state, the market and civil society in such a scenario?
