7 Ways to Have More by Owning Less

Stuff. We all accumulate it and eventually form all kinds of emotional attachments to it. (Arguably, because the marketing machine of the 20th century has conditioned us to do so.) But digital platforms and cloud-based tools are making it increasingly easy to have all the things we want without actually owning them.

The age of keeping up with the Jonses is over.

Bon ok le titre est un peu vendeur…mais de vraies raisons d’être aussi optimiste, il y en a, à la fois pour ce qu’il se trame outre-Atlantique mais aussi en France… Des signes avant-coureurs en provenance des Etats-Unis Selon les secteurs de l’Internet et du e-commerce, il faut un délai plus ou moins long pour que les usages de l’Internet à l’œuvre aux Etats-Unis se traduisent en Europe.

La Consommation Collaborative, phénomène de 2011 ?

C’est le cas par exemple pour le secteur de la réservation de restaurants en ligne : un marché déjà mâture outre-Atlantique et qui n’en est encore qu’à ses débuts en Europe (1 % du total des réservations en 2010 en France ont été effectuées sur Internet).

Zipcar, leader du car-sharing (autopartage traditionnel) aux Etats-Unis continue de s’étendre. Changing Models of Ownership: Part I. Claro Partners' project Changing Models of Ownership and Value Exchange sought to understand how the concept of ownership and its transfer have changed – and are changing – in recent years.

Changing Models of Ownership: Part I

This is one of three short articles which Shareable will publish this month, featuring content from Claro's latest work. From cars to CDs, houses to handbags, people are no longer aspiring to own. Belongings which used to be the standard by which to measure personal success, status, and security are increasingly being borrowed, traded, swapped, or simply left on the shelf.

La persistance d’un taux élevé de chômage en France tend à enfermer les populations les plus précaires dans un cercle vicieux d’exclusion économique et sociale. Cela en dépit des multiples politiques de retour à l’emploi mises en place par les pouvoirs publics. Depuis quinze ans, le Pades (programme d’autoproduction et développement social) promeut une nouvelle approche, l’« autoproduction accompagnée », dont le mot d’ordre est : « Faire, et en faisant, se faire. » The Story of Stuff.
