P2P Funded project: Understanding Today’s Economic Transformation

You can help us develop this project by donating here: http://rockethub.com/projects/1349-understanding-today-s-economic-transformation we have a limited time to raise these funds, thank you for your consideration.

Do you want to understand what is driving our evolving economy in a way that you can use today?

It is no longer news that the old economy is collapsing around us. But it is easy to miss the new economy that is emerging. This project will produce a guide that brings together research and a model into a set of literacies for understanding today’s changing global economy. This guide will be based on:

  1. research on today’s changing global economy as an evolving system.
  2. a complex systems simulation people can use to understand important dynamics transforming that system.

This work will draw on work from key thinkers in fields ranging from social media to economics (for example, Howard Rheingold, Douglas Rushkoff, Lawrence Lessig, Chris Anderson, and Elinor Ostrom).

Merging the work of these key thinkers with the dynamics of the model will reveal how what is collapsing creates opportunities for what is emerging. The resulting guide will provide you with scenarios and suggestions for creating strategies to help you move forward in the new economy.
