Why should it be forbidden to help each other when it no longer has the means to ensure the welfare, as the citizens pay taxes for? If the welfare state is to survive in the long run, we need to use the “share economy” as a new form of currency.
In countries such as the UK, USA and Australia are growing “share economy” explosive. “Parts of the economy” progress in the world is so violent that it according to a new study from the global portal for “sharing economy Compareandshare” has a greater growth than Facebook, Twitter and Google combined. In an Australian study in Canberra Times from January says half of the respondents said that they will change jobs in 2015 – and 75 percent of them say they want to go for a job in the “share economy branch”.
In the countries mentioned and many others is the social security system is not the best in the world and the fastest way to get money is to share their skills and things of payment for house rent and more.
If we in the beginning of the first Internet wave in 1989 had been told that we are 25 years later would share movies, music, news, videos, knowledge and selfies with one another in large networks of hundreds of millions of people virtually free via our mobile phones , we would have said: Bah! It is science fiction. But it is the reality today, and now the time has come for us to share all physical with each other: “Sharing Economy” is here. The third wave Internet.
“Sharing Economy” is digital platforms for micro-entrepreneurship. We already share physical things with each other as cars and homes. But soon we share also everything else that we do not need to own.
A rule of thumb: If it’s free, it’s because you are the product. So you can choose to fight “share economy” because it is monitoring. You can choose to fight it, because it’s micro-entrepreneurship without rules, minimum wages or insurance the way to modern slavery. You can also choose to ignore the exponentially growing trend in the world and say that it has nothing to do with us, but only applies to countries without a strong social safety net. Or you can think 25 years back and consider the following: Can this third wave Internet change the world, to the same extent as the first did?
“Sharing Economy” is the key to the third industrial revolution which we must learn to share the planet’s resources with each other through our digital platforms. We will also learn to share our labor and our belongings. It will definitely be a surveillance society, but in turn allows us to measure our assistance to each other in a whole new way. We can with new parts economic platforms and all the data that records our behavior, see how many hours we help Scouts or miniput States in the football club. The platforms can also measure how much we recycle and digital bracelet can give message to the neighborhood that Mrs. Andersen has fallen on so that you can be with her until the ambulance arrives about 25 minutes. We talk about the help that we otherwise have become accustomed to the welfare state should take care of, but which constantly seem to lose more and more strength in line with globalization and the resulting competition between countries.
We need that the community will be decentralized and that we take responsibility for each other and help. We can just as with the cooperative movement begin to do it out of necessity, but it can grow to a whole new community with consequent exportable companies and ideas. “Sharing Economy” is the new bacon. @ KLL / –
