Keynote Lecture by Professor Yochai Benkler (Harvard Law School) at the IASC 2nd Thematic Conference on Knowledge Commons - Engelberg Center, New York University School of Law, September, 2014 According to Professor Yochai Benkler, the past three decades have seen the emergence and growth of rich literature on the commons, which challenged some of the intellectual foundations of financial, dehumanized form of late-twentieth-century capitalism. In his keynote lecture, Professor Benkler discusses how work on the commons pushed back against five core elements of such ideology. First, work of the Ostrom school beat back Olson-inspired skepticism about the possibility of self-organization, and has been extended to new areas by work of culturally reconstructed commons. Second, the Institutional Analysis and Development Framework pushed back on the plausibility of abstract modeling as the most useful foundation for designing institutional and organizational models, insisting on diversity, complexity and context. Third, work on the information commons and open access models for infrastructure resources refuted the claimed dominance of exclusive property and price-based exchange as the precondition of growth and material well-being. Fourth, the success of commons-based production provided extensive existence proof, which combined with experimental work operated to refute the idea that universal self-interest was a usable model of human behavior to inform institutional and organizational design. Fifth, and finally, the work on global commons combined with investigations of social production to underscore the necessity of, and possible paths towards, a re-embedding of production in social relations. Professor Benkler concludes that, together, these combine to provide an image of a possible path of humane, socially-embedded production system for the twenty-first century.

Michel Bauwens: Are We Shifting to a New Post-Capitalist Value Regime?
 
01:12:34
Every 500 years or so, European civilization and now world civilization, has been rocked by fundamental shifts in its value regime, in which the rules of the game for acquiring wealth and livelihoods have dramatically changed. Following Yochai Benkler's seminal Wealth of Networks, which first identifies peer production, the P2P Foundation has collated a vast amount of empirical evidence of newly emerging value practices, which exist in a uneasy relationship with the dominant political economy, and of which some authors claim, like Jeremy Rifkin and Paul Mason, that it augurs a fundamental shift. What would be the conditions for this new regime to become autonomous and even dominant, and what are the signs of it happening? In this talk Michel Bauwens uses the Tribes, Institutions, Markets, Networks framework of David Ronfeldt, the Relational Grammar of Alan Page Fiske, and the evolution of modes of exchange as described by Kojin Karatini in The Structure of World History to argue that there is consistent evidence that the structural crises of the dominant political economy is leading to responses that are prefigurative of a new value regime, of which the seed forms can be clearly discerned. About Michel Michel Bauwens is the founder and director of the P2P Foundation and works in collaboration with a global group of researchers in the exploration of peer production, governance, and property. Bauwens travels extensively giving workshops and lectures on P2P and the Commons as emergent paradigms and the opportunities they present to move towards a post-capitalist world. In the first semester of 2014, Bauwens was research director of the floksociety.org which produced the first integrated Commons Transition Plan for the government of Ecuador, in order to create policies for a 'social knowledge economy'. In January 2015 CommonsTransition.org was launched. Commons Transition builds on the work of the FLOK Society and features newly revised and updated, non-region specific versions of these policy documents. Commons Transition aims toward a society of the Commons that would enable a more egalitarian, just, and environmentally stable world. He is a founding member of the Commons Strategies Group, with Silke Helfrich and David Bollier, who have organised major global conferences on the commons and economics. http://commonsandeconomics.org His recent book 'Save the world - Towards a Post Capitalist Society with P2P' is based on a series of interviews with Jean Lievens, originally published in Dutch in 2014 it has since been translated and published in French with an English language publication expected in the near future http://www.samkinsley.com/2015/03/31/to-save-the-world-preface-by-bernard-stiegler-for-michel-bauwens-new-book/ In more academic work Michel co-authored with Vasilis Kostakis ‘Network Society and Future Scenarios for a Collaborative Economy’ published by Palgrave Pivot in 2014. http://p2pfoundation.net/Network_Society_and_Future_Scenarios_for_a_Collaborative_Economy He has also writen for Al Jazeera and Open Democracy. He is listed at #82, on the Post Growth Institute (En)Rich list. http://enrichlist.org/the-list/ Michel currently lives in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Legal System Basics: Crash Course Government and Politics #18
 
08:14
This week Craig Benzine takes a first look at the judicial branch. It's pretty easy to forget that the courts, and the laws that come out of them, affect our lives on a daily basis. But how exactly these decisions are made and where each law's jurisdiction starts and ends can get pretty complicated. So complicated in fact that you may want to smash something. But don't worry, Craig will clear the way.

Government Regulation: Crash Course Government and Politics #47
 
09:49
Today, we’re going to wrap up our discussion of economic policy by looking at government regulation. We're going to talk about the government's goals for the U.S. economy and the policies it employs to achieve those goals. Ever since the New Deal, we've seen an increased role of the government within the economy - even with the deregulation initiatives of President Carter and Reagan in the 80's. Now this is all pretty controversial and we're going to talk about it, as this is a long way from the federal government handed down by the framers of the constitution.

Structure of the Court System: Crash Course Government and Politics #19
 
06:59
This week Craig Benzine is going to talk about the structure of the U.S. court system and how exactly it manages to keep things moving smoothly. We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court! Most are settled out of court, but also terms like mootness and ripeness are used to throw cases out altogether. Today, we're going to focus on how cases make it to the top, and next week we’ll talk about what happens when they get there.

Property Rights in the 21st Century
 
01:36:39
Timothy Sandefur, Principal Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, discusses how the evolution of law in the United States has affected our property rights. Beginning with discussions of the founding fathers, Timothy describes how our rights, especially property rights, have eroded as a consequence of progressive ideas and judges. To reverse this cycle, Timothy states that we must strengthen the philosophical arguments of private property rights. Watch more videos:http://lrnlbty.co/y5tTcY

Massimo de Angelis: Crisis of Capitalist Relations and the Need for a Plan C /// 23rd November 2012
 
01:33:42
Massimo de Angelis: "Crisis of Capitalist Relations and the Need for a Plan C" 23.11.2012. Lecture held at the conference "Economy of Crisis Capitalism and Ecology of the Commons", 22.-24. November 2012, Zagreb, Goethe Institut (Vukovarska str. 64) / MAMA (Preradovićeva str. 18) organizers of the conference: Pravo na Grad / Right to the City http://pravonagrad.org/ Multimedijalni institut mama / Multimedial institute mama http://www.mi2.hr/ Centar za radničke studije / Centre for Labour Studies http://radnickistudiji.org/ Heinrich Böll Stiftung Croatia http://www.hr.boell.org/ The commons have recently become the mobilizing credo of social struggles -- struggles against privatization of public goods, against marketization of education and healthcare, against cuts in public services, against resocialization of private risks, against debt, against landgrab and privatization of public space, against patents over biological foundations of life, against economic barriers to vital drugs, against enclosures of knowledge and culture... The commons are a rallying call for social movements, crystallizing on the one hand the negative experience of advanced processes of growing commodification of ever broader segments of non-commodified goods and services that are at the foundation of social equality. On the other hand, crystallizing the positive experience of self-organizing, social solidarity and democratic management of resources that emerge in those movements and point to the urgency of a political project of resocializing the economy that could break the vicious circle between the capital and the political governance of crisis economies. The commons are an indicator of a particular historic conjuncture of the present moment -- a sort of a perfect storm -- where an enduring economic crisis, socially devastating austerity policies, decades-long transformations of property relations and shifts in balance of powers between capital and labor have all joined forces. The international conference "Economy of Crisis Capitalism and Ecology of the Commons" will start from the analysis of the emergence and current stage of the crisis, its consequences on labor, public sector and non-commodified goods of various kind. We wish to discuss avenues of possible political action and new political categories that would allow labor organizations, social movements and political actors to stop the paralysis imposed by the current dominant interpretation of the crisis as the crisis of public profligacy and unsustainability of the welfare state. A particular emphasis will be given to how existing social movements in the form of activist or civil groups can continue their action beyond the immediate occasion and location of their emergence. And, secondly, how can we advocate and implement processes of remunicipalization of privatized goods. The conference will be provide a venue for exchange between positions of trade unionists, economists, legal experts, environmentalists, activists for spatial justice, for public water systems, for public healthcare, for the digital commons. The roster includes: Massimo de Angelis, Michel Bauwens, Teodor Celakoski, Stipe Ćurković, Vladimir Cvijanović, Danijela Dolenec, Ana Džokić / Marc Neelen (STEALTH), Trevor Evans, Pippa Gallop, Ursula Huws, Mario Iveković, Dmytri Kleiner, Marko Kostanić, Jovica Lončar, Ugo Mattei, Tomislav Medak, Yann Moulier Boutang, Martin Pigeon, Dušica Radojčić, Dubravka Sekulić, David Price, Felix Stalder, Asbjørn Wahl, Mislav Žitko. Massimo De Angelis is Professor of Political Economy and Development at the University of East London, and founder and editor of the web journal The Commoner. He is author of The Beginning of History (London, Pluto press, 2007) and working on a monograph on the critical theory of the commons. www.slobodnifilozofski.com www.slobodnifilozofski.org www.facebook.com/skriptatv www.youtube.com/tvskripta www.youtube.com/skriptatv

Speaker(s): Professor John Kay, Professor Mariana Mazzucato Chair: Professor Julian Le Grand Recorded on 4 June 2013 in New Theatre, East Building. John Kay chaired the Review of UK Equity Markets and Long-Term Decision-Making which reported to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills in July 2012. He is a visiting Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, a Fellow of St John's College, Oxford. He is a Fellow of the British Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He is a director of several public companies and contributes a weekly column to the Financial Times. He is the author of many books, including The Truth about Markets (2003) and The Long and the Short of It: finance and investment for normally intelligent people who are not in the industry (2009) and his latest book, Obliquity was published by Profile Books in March 2010. Mariana Mazzucato, an economist, holds the RM Phillips Chair in Science and Technology Policy at the University of Sussex (SPRU). Her work focuses on the relationship between financial markets, innovation, and economic growth, and is currently funded by the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), the Ford Foundation and the European Commission. She advises the EC on innovation led growth through two expert groups, and is a member of related task forces in the UK, such as the UCL Green Economy Policy Commission. Her work on The Entrepreneurial State (DEMOS, 2011) has had significant policy impact across Europe, and her forthcoming book (Anthem, 2013) with the same title, develops this work further, focusing on the need to develop new frameworks to understand the role of the state in economic growth—and how to enable rewards from innovation to be just as 'social' as the risks taken. This lecture is Political Quarterly's Annual Lecture.
Top Economists Explain Money, Trade, Financial Markets, Foreign Economies (1994)
 
39:11
Economics is one social science among several and has fields bordering on other areas, including economic geography, economic history, public choice, energy economics, cultural economics, family economics and institutional economics. Law and economics, or economic analysis of law, is an approach to legal theory that applies methods of economics to law. It includes the use of economic concepts to explain the effects of legal rules, to assess which legal rules are economically efficient, and to predict what the legal rules will be.[96] A seminal article by Ronald Coase published in 1961 suggested that well-defined property rights could overcome the problems of externalities.[97] Political economy is the interdisciplinary study that combines economics, law, and political science in explaining how political institutions, the political environment, and the economic system (capitalist, socialist, mixed) influence each other. It studies questions such as how monopoly, rent-seeking behavior, and externalities should impact government policy.[98] Historians have employed political economy to explore the ways in the past that persons and groups with common economic interests have used politics to effect changes beneficial to their interests.[99] Energy economics is a broad scientific subject area which includes topics related to energy supply and energy demand. Georgescu-Roegen reintroduced the concept of entropy in relation to economics and energy from thermodynamics, as distinguished from what he viewed as the mechanistic foundation of neoclassical economics drawn from Newtonian physics. His work contributed significantly to thermoeconomics and to ecological economics. He also did foundational work which later developed into evolutionary economics.[100] The sociological subfield of economic sociology arose, primarily through the work of Émile Durkheim, Max Weber and Georg Simmel, as an approach to analysing the effects of economic phenomena in relation to the overarching social paradigm (i.e. modernity).[101] Classic works include Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism (1905) and Georg Simmel's The Philosophy of Money (1900). More recently, the works of Mark Granovetter, Peter Hedstrom and Richard Swedberg have been influential in this field. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_theory Institutional economics focuses on understanding the role of the evolutionary process and the role of institutions in shaping economic behaviour. Its original focus lay in Thorstein Veblen's instinct-oriented dichotomy between technology on the one side and the "ceremonial" sphere of society on the other. Its name and core elements trace back to a 1919 American Economic Review article by Walton H. Hamilton.[1][2] Institutional economics emphasizes a broader study of institutions and views markets as a result of the complex interaction of these various institutions (e.g. individuals, firms, states, social norms). The earlier tradition continues today as a leading heterodox approach to economics.[3] A significant variant is the new institutional economics from the later 20th century, which integrates later developments of neoclassical economics into the analysis. Law and economics has been a major theme since the publication of the Legal Foundations of Capitalism by John R. Commons in 1924. Behavioral economics is another hallmark of institutional economics based on what is known about psychology and cognitive science, rather than simple assumptions of economic behavior. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institutional_economics

Freedom of Speech: Crash Course Government and Politics #25
 
06:52
Today, FINALLY, Craig is going to talk about Free Speech! Now, free speech is so important because it not only allows you to critique the government, but it also protects you from the government. But it's essential to remember that not ALL speech is protected equally under the First Amendment, and just because you have a right to free speech doesn't mean your employer, for instance, can't fire you for something you say (unless your work for the government and then things get a bit more complicated). So we'll take a look at a couple significant Supreme Court cases that have gotten us to our current definition of free speech, and we'll also discuss some of the more controversial aspects of free speech - like hate speech.

Copyleft Capitalism: GPLv3 & the Future of Software Innovation
 
01:31:23
Eben Moglen's invited talk at IBM Research: Copyleft Capitalism: GPLv3 & the Future of Software Innovation. ABSTRACT Software is now, in the knowledge economy of the 21st century, made by "communities" rather than "firms." The result is one of the less familiar aspects of 21st century economics -- the dead-weight inefficiency of legal rules that treat knowledge as "property" from which non-paying users (who are also potential creators) should be excluded. Alternative legal arrangements that permit sharing are in this environment preferentially selected and the evolutionary process has reached a new stage with the development and adoption of GPLv3. In this talk I consider both the constituent details and the larger context of the copyleft revolution in software production, and of GPLv3 in particular.

Dmytri Kleiner: Facebook is Internet reimagined through imagination of network television capitalism
 
12:01
The interview with Dmytri Kleiner was made during his stay in Zagreb, at the conference "Economy of Crisis Capitalism and Ecology of the Commons", 22.-24. November 2012, Zagreb, Goethe Institut (Vukovarska str. 64) / MAMA (Preradovićeva str. 18), where he held a presentation (recording forthcoming) at Panel 5 ("Sustaining the Commons, Sustaining the Peer Production") Interviewed by Martin Beroš organizers of the conference: Pravo na Grad / Right to the City http://pravonagrad.org/ Multimedijalni institut mama / Multimedial institute mama http://www.mi2.hr/ Centar za radničke studije / Centre for Labour Studies http://radnickistudiji.org/ Heinrich Böll Stiftung Croatia http://www.hr.boell.org/ The commons have recently become the mobilizing credo of social struggles -- struggles against privatization of public goods, against marketization of education and healthcare, against cuts in public services, against resocialization of private risks, against debt, against landgrab and privatization of public space, against patents over biological foundations of life, against economic barriers to vital drugs, against enclosures of knowledge and culture... The commons are a rallying call for social movements, crystallizing on the one hand the negative experience of advanced processes of growing commodification of ever broader segments of non-commodified goods and services that are at the foundation of social equality. On the other hand, crystallizing the positive experience of self-organizing, social solidarity and democratic management of resources that emerge in those movements and point to the urgency of a political project of resocializing the economy that could break the vicious circle between the capital and the political governance of crisis economies. The commons are an indicator of a particular historic conjuncture of the present moment -- a sort of a perfect storm -- where an enduring economic crisis, socially devastating austerity policies, decades-long transformations of property relations and shifts in balance of powers between capital and labor have all joined forces. The international conference "Economy of Crisis Capitalism and Ecology of the Commons" will start from the analysis of the emergence and current stage of the crisis, its consequences on labor, public sector and non-commodified goods of various kind. We wish to discuss avenues of possible political action and new political categories that would allow labor organizations, social movements and political actors to stop the paralysis imposed by the current dominant interpretation of the crisis as the crisis of public profligacy and unsustainability of the welfare state. A particular emphasis will be given to how existing social movements in the form of activist or civil groups can continue their action beyond the immediate occasion and location of their emergence. And, secondly, how can we advocate and implement processes of remunicipalization of privatized goods. The conference will be provide a venue for exchange between positions of trade unionists, economists, legal experts, environmentalists, activists for spatial justice, for public water systems, for public healthcare, for the digital commons.

Property - Intro to Political Economy, Lecture3
 
01:02:18
https://sites.duke.edu/intrope/ COURSE OVERVIEW: Introduction to Political Economy is a self-contained and nontechnical overview of the intellectual history of political economy, the logic of microeconomics, and the definitions used in macroeconomics. It introduces the notion of a political economy, emphasizing the moral and ethical problems that markets solve, and fail to solve. LECTURE OVERVIEW: 1. Is economics a science? 2. Do institutions evolve (coyotes), or emerge from conscious choice (chihuahuas)? Another example is also given, comparing Jewish dietary and food preparation rules with "modern" food handling rules based on a theory of germ pathology. They are surprisingly similar, showing that there are at least two paths to development of rules. 3. The briefest statement of the best argument for capitalism is NOT greed, it's not self-interest It's the relation between property, voluntary exchange, and price. These have a connected set of consequentialist and natural rights implications. No way to evaluate them separately, because they can't really be disconnected. 4. The political theories of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau are discussed, and the implications for the morality and importance of property described. 5. Does your dog own your house? 6. Two court cases are discussed: (a) Hinman v. Pacific Air (1936) and (b) Jacques v. Steenberg Homes (1997). The implications for our understanding, and the social status, of property, is discussed. READINGS: Locke, John. Second Treatise on Government, Chapter 5, “On Property,” (http://www.constitution.org/jl/2ndtr05.htm ) (OPTIONAL: Background on Locke, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Wealth Creators: The Forgotten Victims of Cronyism (OCON 2017)
 
01:29:42
Critics of cronyism typically describe the problem as politicians and businesses conspiring to win government favors at the expense of taxpayers, or the public in general. While this view is not entirely wrong, it misses important aspects of the problem and does a grave injustice to businessmen who succeed through production rather than pull. This talk, by Ayn Rand Institute director of Legal Studies Steve Simpson, untangles the confusion about cronyism and explains why its biggest victims are businessmen. This talk was delivered at Objectivist Summer Conference 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, June 11, 2017. He is joined in the question period by Gregory Salmieri, who teaches philosophy at Rutgers University and is a fellow at the Anthem Foundation for Objectivist Scholarship. SUBSCRIBE TO ARI’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=AynRandInstitute ABOUT THE AYN RAND INSTITUTE ARI offers educational experiences, based on Ayn Rand's books and ideas, to a variety of audiences, including students, educators, policymakers and lifelong learners.

Economics of Open Content: Wealth of Networks
 
58:48
Yale University Law School Professor Yochai Benkler explores the new economies and the powerful transformative potential of decentralized social production. The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom Yochai Benkler, Yale Law School On January 23-24, 2006, Intelligent Television hosts the Economics of Open Content symposium at MIT to bring together representatives from media industries, cultural and educational institutions, and legal and business minds to discuss how to make open content happen better and faster. With the support of the Hewlett Foundation and MIT Open Courseware, Intelligent Television brings representatives of commercial media industries (publishing, film, music, television, video, software, education/courseware, gaming) together with representatives of cultural and educational institutions who are innovative in this area and legal and business minds in the academy who are studying how to make this happen faster and better. New Yorker economics columnist and bestselling author (The Wisdom of Crowds) James Surowiecki keynotes at the Cambridge meeting, with a presentation entitled 'Openness as an Ethos.' Intelligent Television has been conducting a year-long investigation into the economics of open content. This project is a systematic study of why and how it makes sense for commercial companies and noncommercial institutions active in culture, education, and media to make certain materials widely available for free, and also how free services are finding new (sometimes commercial) ways of becoming sustainable. The project builds upon written work that Intelligent Television recently completed with the support of the Mellon Foundation and Ithaka on Marketing Culture in the Digital Age, and also upon work now being completed as part of the Mellon Foundation-supported Commission on Cyberinfrastructure in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The project also informs new economic models that Intelligent Television is establishing for its documentary work. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons License.

[Re]Form: New Investigations in Urban Form, Panel 1
 
01:52:09
Panel 1: Reconstructing the Agency of Form Panelists: Pier Vittorio Aureli, Neyran Turan Moderator: Charles Waldheim Introduction by Mohsen Mostafavi Re]FORM: New Investigations in Urban Form aims to reposition the discourse of urban form within contemporary urban theory. Inspired by Henri Lefebvre’s seminal text Urban Form (1970), this conference aspires to provoke new investigations and debates on urban form and its relevance in contemporary urbanizations. Specifically, by acknowledging the fluctuating conditions of political, economic, and technological contexts and practices, this conference interrogates the meanings of “form” and its role in contemporary urbanization through the agency of the design disciplines, and gauges such discourses against the debates on urban theory situated within contemporary urban conditions and transitions. ​ Almost half a century has passed since the publication of Urban Form by Henri Lefebvre, the urban, as he avers, is — “a place of encounter, assembly, simultaneity” — which constitutes a logical form and embodies a kind of knowledge, has been vastly defined through geographical, political and economic substances and practices ever since. Particularly in the past three decades, emerging technologies have drastically challenged the idea of urban and its form ranging in scale from the planetary to the individual. The unprecedented urban complex generally prioritizes the practices over its agencies and thus obscures the logics of the urban upon which it operates. The process of contemporary urbanization produces radical phenomena and urban objects, yet prioritizing urban form as a key instrument for contemporary urbanization remains an elusive notion. Recovering the epistemological agency of urban form is a pressing matter.

3. Locke: Equality, Freedom, Property and the Right to Dissent
 
45:23
Foundations of Modern Social Thought (SOCY 151) John Locke, a liberal thinker and near-contemporary of the conservative Hobbes, disputes Hobbes's thinking in some keys ways and builds on it in others. Locke starts his political theory with a notion of individuals in the state of nature being free, equal and reasonable; the state of nature is not synonymous with the state of war for Locke as it is for Hobbes. Locke argues that states should protect the property of individuals and must govern with the consent of subjects. Unlike Hobbes's strong, unitary sovereign, Locke envisions a separation of the powers of the state into executive, legislative, and federative powers. We examine how Locke's political and social thought assumes an abundance of resources while Hobbes's thought is predicated on an assumption of scarcity. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Today Hank begins to teach you about Philosophy by discussing the historical origins of philosophy in ancient Greece, and its three main divisions: metaphysics, epistemology, and value theory. He will also introduce logic, and how you’re going to use it to understand and critically evaluate a whole host of different worldviews throughout this course.

Private vs Personal Property

Twitter - Badmouse101 A short tutorial for people who don't understand the differences between Private Property and Personal Property. Edit: In addition to Private Property being used for profit, what is also crucial is that it must be exploiting other people's labour for profit. This marks the difference between someone being a wood turner using their own labour (A personal Lathe), and a factory using 100 lathes to make money for a company using employees.

Reclaiming the Commons - A New Operating System for Capatilism A segment of a presentation given by Emer O'Siochru where she describes the ideas of Peter Barnes from his book Capitalism 3.0, as part of the Feasta 2008 Seminar Series: Converging Crises, Policy Responses. http://www.feasta.org/events/general/2008_seminars.htm This talk addressed destruction of 'the commons' - the vital but undefined resources that sustain life and civilisation that are under threat form the current system. It offered ideas about how they can be redefined, given legal protection within the market economy, their proper owners identified and champions assigned to manage and conserve them for current and future generations.
