373: Scarcity Engineering

Michel Bauwens

Michel Bauwens

KMO welcomes Michel Bauwens of the P2P Foundation to the C-Realm podcast to talk about strategies for transitioning from an economy dominated by for profit institutions to a "for benefit" model. Michel thinks the current system fails to recognize actual scarcity of resources and imposes an artificial scarcity on knowledge, science and culture, which are naturally abundant.  He discusses BitCoin as an example of deliberately manufactured scarcity and cites several nascent examples of an enabling  civic infrastructure that he calls "the partner state" where state institutions help citizens build value on top of a protected commons.


Music by the Cadillac Moon Ensemble.
