Capitalism: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity. To use the metaphor of our era, we are running an extractive, growth-driven economic operating system that has reached the limits of its ability to serve anyone, rich or poor, human or corporate.

Capitalism: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity

Moreover, we’re running it on super computers and digital networks that accelerate and amplify all its effects. Growth is the single, uncontested, core command of the digital economy… An operating system designed by 13th century Moorish accountants looking for a way to preserve the aristocracy of Europe has worked as promised. It turned the marketplace into one giant debtors’ prison.

It is not only unfit for the needs of a 21st century digital society; central currency is the core mechanism of the growth trap. Douglas Rushkoff, Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus To be alive in 2017 is to be living through a raging, roiling argument about money: how it’s generated and how it will be distributed in the 21st century.

Many people sense that something has gone terribly wrong. The Last Gasp of Late-Stage Capitalism: An Integral Look at the Republican Tax Plan. Economics Archives.

Concebida principalmente por el filósofo estadounidense -considerado como el Einstein de la conciencia- Ken Wilber, la visión integral incorpora gradualmente a más líderes y personas en el mundo. Integral Investing. El dinero y la teoría integral de Ken Wilber – El Caduceo de Mercurio. Ken Wilber es un escritor y filósofo contemporáneo que se planteó el ambicioso reto de crear un marco de referencia que abarcara toda la experiencia humana.

El dinero y la teoría integral de Ken Wilber – El Caduceo de Mercurio

Se encerró durante años estudiando diferentes disciplinas como la filosofía, la psicología, la religión, la ciencia, la biología… De ahí surgió su teoría integral, un enfoque basado en cuatro cuadrantes y diferentes niveles o estadios de desarrollo. En mi opinión, la distribución en cuadrantes de la teoría integral tiene una gran utilidad para entender lo que significa el dinero y cómo nos relacionamos con su energía. Los cuadrantes se estructuran en base a dos dimensiones, una individual/colectiva, y otra interior/exterior. El gráfico abajo refleja cómo esta teoría se aplicaría al dinero. Los cuadrantes de la derecha (exterior) se refieren a las manifestaciones exteriores del dinero, es decir todo aquello que es visible en referencia a su uso.

Holistical and Integral Development

General use Every human has an interior (subjective, experiencing) and an exterior (objective, visible, measurable) and is integrated into a system (e. g. social environment, family, organizations). Consequently, four different, equally important perspectives are formed, which can be structured in the form of a quadrant image. The quadrants form by subdividing the whole into external (right quadrants) and internal (left quadrants) as well as into individual (upper quadrants) and systemic (lower quadrants). In other words: on the left side, there are the subjective perspectives (I and WE) and on the right side the objective perspectives (IT and THEY).
