100 Women in P2P: Jean Russell. Theconversation. The year 2011 is widely viewed as the peak of protest and dissent in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and the austerity agenda that followed it.

theconversation

It was the year of the Arab Spring, Occupy, UK Uncut, indignados, urban riots and anti-austerity and tuition fee protests – and in which Time magazine famously named “The Protester” as its person of the year. Yet in the UK, protests continue to occur at a rate rarely seen prior to the global economic crisis in 2008. Indeed, 2015 seems to have confirmed the suggestion, made at the beginning of the year, that 2011 was “really only just the beginning”.

Markets in the next system - The Next System Project. Markets before capitalism In her seminal work “The Origin of Capitalism,” the late scholar Ellen Meiksins Wood took on the credo that “capitalism emerged when the market was liberated from age-old constraints and when, for one reason or another, opportunities for trade expanded.”

Not Something Else. France is introducing laws “requiring all of the nation’s “collective restaurants” (school cafeterias, hospital cafeterias, senior living communities, prisons and other state institutions) to source at least 40 percent of their food locally”.

“In addition to being locally sourced, the food served must be in season, organically grown and certified ecologically sustainable”.

See also this post from the Transition Network that positions community mapping within the context of lots of other “ingredients” needed for community change-making (The term ‘ingredients’ is the Transition term for patterns in pattern language). Listed below are mainly UK maps and some global ones. There are maps that locate Timebanks, Cooperatives, community assets and community groups as well as local producers, growers or retailers, independent businesses of all kinds, organics, places for foraging and permaculture projects. There are also some great maps on regional soil types or wind speeds, cycle routes or typical farming, the potential for sea level rise and there’s even a bunch on local statistics maps with figures for things like economic trade and many more.

The Seven Stages of Establishment Backlash: Corbyn/Sanders Edition. The British political and media establishment incrementally lost its collective mind over the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the country’s Labour Party, and their unravelling and implosion shows no signs of receding yet.

The Seven Stages of Establishment Backlash: Corbyn/Sanders Edition

Bernie Sanders is nowhere near as radical as Corbyn: they are not even in the same universe. But, especially on economic issues, Sanders is a more fundamental, systemic critic than the oligarchical power centers are willing to tolerate, and his rejection of corporate dominance over politics, and corporate support for his campaigns, is particularly menacing. He is thus regarded as America’s version of a far-left extremist, threatening establishment power. Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons, (Photo: PA Wire/AP) A P2P future — a thousand tomorrows. A P2P future Note: back in 2006, I interviewed Michel Bauwens of the P2P Foundation for Pantopicon’s blog “a thousand tomorrows”.

A P2P future — a thousand tomorrows

By popular request, I hereby repost the original interview as the blog meanwhile went offline. Inhabitat - Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building. A new report envisions a nightmare scenario in which just three climate change-driven disasters could lead to global food shock, resulting in food riots as the price of basic crops skyrockets and stock markets experience significant losses.

The risk assessment, which was produced by insurer Lloyd’s of London—with support from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and vetted by academics from a number of institutions—shows just how close humanity may be to catastrophic collapse by mid-century unless significant changes are made to slow global warming. The scenario posited in the report looks at what would happen if there were three simultaneous disasters; specifically a heat wave in South America, an explosion of windblown wheat stern rust pathogen across Russia and a particularly strong El Niño southern oscillation cycle—all perfectly plausible events given current climate trends.

Réformer la comptabilité privée pour réformer le capitalisme - Chroniques de l'Anthropocène. La comptabilité d’entreprise, telle que nous la connaissons aujourd’hui a été codifiée au Moyen-Age[1] pour représenter le patrimoine des propriétaires de l’entreprise et son évolution. Elle est née à une époque où la terre et les ressources naturelles sont considérées de fait comme infinie.

The tube at a standstill: why TfL stopped people walking up the escalators. On 4 December last year, the London Underground ingested 4,821,000 passengers and spat them out at their destinations, and in doing so set a new record for a single day. If you paused to contemplate this for a moment, you might think of all those Oyster cards tapping, all those doors sliding, all those people moving, consider whatever mad visionary first thought of demolishing houses to dig holes in the ground to put trains in, and conclude that a subterranean public transport network is a small miracle.

Most of the time, though, commuters don’t pause, and don’t conclude anything of the sort. Economic Calculation (3): Can Distributed Energy Metering Be Considered as a Commons?
