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.

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.

The Corruption of Capitalism: Why Rentiers thrive and work does not pay
 
01:29:45
Guy Standing, Professorial Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), joins us to discuss the key themes from his new book The Corruption of Capitalism: Why rentiers thrive and work does not pay. The book argues that there is a lie at the heart of global capitalism. Politicians, financiers and global bureaucrats claim to believe in free competitive markets, but have constructed the most unfree market system ever. It is corrupt because income is channelled to the owners of property – financial, physical and intellectual – at the expense of society. About the speaker Guy Standing is a Professorial Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and a founder member and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), a non-governmental organisation that promotes a basic income for all.
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.

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

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. The commons include the atmosphere, the oceans, surface and ground waters, aspects of land, genetic information, plant and animal diversity, scientific knowledge and culture.

Wolfgang Stützels rechtsinstitutionalistische Wurzeln. Fabian Lindner im ANEP-Talk.
 
01:43:19
Überblick und mehr zu dieser Perspektive in unserem Einführungsseminar: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLyRk2yIHSNKndma7yOQi1iRzoRV0SqATC ----------- Wir unterhalten uns im obigen Video in unserem ersten Gespräch mit Fabian v.a. über Wolfgang Stützels intellektuelle Wurzeln im amerikanischen Rechtsinstitutionalismus von John R. Commons („Legal Foundations of Capitalism“, 1924; „Institutional Economics“, 1934), der auch für uns zentral ist. Diese Wurzeln finden sich in Stützels 1952er Dissertation, „Preis, Wert, Macht“ (Aalen 1972; vgl. S. 292, 139,100, 86, 68, 65, 52, 2). Stützel entwickelte dort, „dem Vorbild von J.R. Commons folgend“ (S. 139), eine auf einer allgemeinen ökonomischen Machttheorie beruhende Preistheorie. Ein Jahr später stellte er dann in seinem „Paradoxa der Geld- und Konkurrenzwirtschaft“ erstmals den Anschluß des Rechtsinstitutionalismus an die „reine Ökonomie“ (BWL und VWL/Makroökonomie) her – und zwar systematisch, über die doppelte Buchhaltung. Wir besprechen mit Fabian v.a. die privat- und öffentlichrechtlichen Fundamente der doppelten Buchhaltung, die - entgegen der universalistischen Annahmen der Ökonomen und Juristen - nur in einem kleinen Teil der Welt tatsächlich verläßlich gegeben sind (siehe weak state index + property rights index) - schon in Griechenland beispielsweise nicht mehr: ein Problem für die Eurozone, Europa und die Entwicklungstheorie, das Ökonomen üblicherweise übersehen. Die Existenz von staatlichem Gewaltmonopol, Privatrecht und Öffentlichem Recht hat leider auch Stützel ebenso als gegeben vorausgesetzt wie so wie praktisch alle Ökonomen – etwas, das wir uns mit einem Land wie GR in der Eurozone und einem failed state nach dem anderen jenseits des Mittelmeers heute nicht mehr leisten können. Hier schafft nur ein systematisch kulturvergleichender Blick mithilfe von Rechts- und Wirtschaftsethnologie und ein vergleichender Blick auf die Geschichte der Entstehung von Staaten und von Privatrecht auch theoretisch sytematische Klarheit darüber, was die Erfahrung mit dem „Washington Consensus“ längst praktisch gezeigt hat: daß zivilisatorische Entwicklung und Privatrecht ohne vorheriges state building unmöglich ist. Eine solche Perspektive entwirft Francis Fukuyama in seinem beiden letzten Büchern, „Origins of Political Order“ und „Political Order and Political Decay“. Denn Wirtschaften heißt nicht, „rationaler Umgang mit knappen Mitteln bei unbegrenzten Bedürfnissen.“ Sondern: Lebenskampf unter einem staatlichen Gewaltmonopol, das vor dem Recht freien und gleichen abstrakten Rechtspersonen per rechtlich domestizierter Waffengewalt Freiheit (Eigentum und Vertrag) garantiert, durchsetzt und vollstreckt und die Rechtspersonen dafür mit einer Zwangssteuer belegt. Unter diesen Umständen muß das wichtigste ökonomische Ziel der Rechtspersonen sein, den eigenen Gewinn (Nettovermögenszuwachs) und - damit die eigenen Möglichkeiten der Lebensentfaltung –– zu maximieren. Sowohl mit geschäftlichen als auch mit politischen Mitteln. Was auf S. 1 jedes BWL-Lehrbuch ja auch ganz richtig „Profitmaximierung“ heißt.

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

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. BIO Professor of Law and Legal History at Columbia University Law School. Professor Moglen has represented many of the world's leading free software developers. Professor Moglen earned his PhD in History and law degree at Yale University during what he sometimes calls his “long, dark period” in New Haven. After law school he clerked for Judge Edward Weinfeld of the United States District Court in New York City and to Justice Thurgood Marshall of the United States Supreme Court. He has taught at Columbia Law School – and has held visiting appointments at Harvard University, Tel Aviv University and the University of Virginia – since 1987. In 2003 he was given the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award for efforts on behalf of freedom in the electronic society. Professor Moglen is admitted to practice in the State of New York and before the United States Supreme Court. He is also a director of the Software Freedom Conservancy. IBM

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

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.

Asbjørn Wahl: The Rise and Fall of the Welfare State
 
01:32:01
Asbjørn Wahl: "The Rise and Fall of the Welfare State" 22.11.2012. 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.

http://www.mediaed.org/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=146 This Land is Our Land: The Fight to Reclaim the Commons A Film by the Media Education Foundation Featuring David Bollier For more than three decades, transnational corporations have been busy buying up what used to be known as the commons -- everything from our forests and our oceans to our broadcast airwaves and our most important intellectual and cultural works. In This Land is Our Land, acclaimed author David Bollier, a leading figure in the global movement to reclaim the commons, bucks the rising tide of anti-government extremism and free market ideology to show how commercial interests are undermining our collective interests. Placing the commons squarely within the American tradition of community engagement and the free exchange of ideas and information, Bollier shows how a bold new international movement steeped in democratic principles is trying to reclaim our common wealth by modeling practical alternatives to the restrictive monopoly powers of corporate elites. David Bollier David Bollier is an author, activist, blogger and consultant who has spent the past ten years exploring the commons as a new paradigm of economics, politics and culture. He has pursued this work in collaboration with a variety of international and domestic partners. He speaks widely about the commons, and recently co-founded a new international organization, Commons Strategies, dedicated to developing and promoting commons-based public policies and initiatives. In 2010, Bollier taught a course on the topic as the Croxton Lecturer at Amherst College. Bollier's latest book, Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of Their Own (2009), describes the rise of free software, free culture, and the commons-based movements seeking to advance open business models, open science and open educational resources. His first book on the commons, Silent Theft: The Private Plunder of Our Common Wealth (2002), is now widely used in colleges around the world. It surveys the many market enclosures of people's shared resources, from public lands and the airwaves to public spaces, plant and animal genes, and knowledge. Brand Name Bullies: The Quest to Own and Control Culture (2005) documents the vast expansion of copyright and trademark law over the past generation. Bollier has worked with American television writer/producer Norman Lear since 1984, and is Senior Fellow at the Norman Lear Center at the USC Annenberg School for Communication. He is also Co-founder and board member of Public Knowledge, a Washington policy advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the information commons. Bollier lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Economics and the Commons Conference 2013 (Day 1, part 1)
 
02:00:14
Video recording of the conference "Economics and the Common(s): From Seed Form to Core Paradigm" May 22 -- 24, 2013 The prevailing dogma of market-fundamentalism has increasingly been called into question as the predatory dynamics of the market economy became clear and as its threats to the biosphere have become more acute. Our conference "Economics and the Common(s): From Seed Form to Core Paradigm" seeks to open up some new vistas in politics, economics and culture by exploring the commons as an alternative worldview and provisioning system, as well as a coherent field of inquiry and action. It will convene approximately 240 commoners -- researchers, practitioners andadvocates from around the world -- to explore the relationship of conventional economics and the commons, showcase key actors and initiatives, and deviseplans for moving the commons paradigm forward.

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.

WEAthens2014: Michel Bauwens, P2P Foundation
 
01:53:27
Distributed Energy for a Fair and Sustainable Distributed Economy and Society Distributed energy is but one of the material infrastructures that would enable a free citizenry that could collaborate in the production of needs and the co-construction of society, along with also many immaterial infrastructures and feeding mechanisms for the commons. In this talk, based on the experience with the Commons Transition Plan crafted for governmental institutions in Ecuador, we will present a vision of a future society that depends on distributed energy infrastructures and how to get there. Michel Bauwens was the research director of the floksociety.org transition project in Ecuador, is founder of the P2P Foundation and assisted with the launch of the ambitious faircoop initiative which will use commons-based cryptocurrencies to empower a global platform for open cooperatives. This talk took place at the WEAthens2014 Conference by the Wind Empowerment association at the National Technical University of Athens.

4. Origins of Classical Utilitarianism
 
43:20
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Jeremy Bentham's formulation of classical utilitarianism is the first Enlightenment tradition that the course will cover in depth. In his Principles of Morals and Legislation, Bentham outlines the principle of utility; that is, the principle that all men are pleasure-seeking and pain-avoiding. Professor Shapiro presents the case that classical utilitarianism has five characteristics: (1) it is comprehensive and deterministic, (2) it is a pre-Darwinian naturalist doctrine, (3) it is egoistic but not subjectivist, (4) it is highly consequentialist, and (5) it is based on the idea that utility is quantifiable and that one can make interpersonal comparisons of utility. As for the role of government, Bentham believes that it is to "maximize the greatest happiness of the greatest number." The class discusses the merits of utilitarianism through examination of Robert Nozick's hypothetical experience machines, the implication of public goods, and "the tragedy of the commons." 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Institutional economics | Wikipedia audio article
 
20:41
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Institutional economics Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= 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. 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."Traditional" institutionalism rejects the reduction of institutions to simply tastes, technology, and nature (see naturalistic fallacy). Tastes, along with expectations of the future, habits, and motivations, not only determine the nature of institutions but are limited and shaped by them. If people live and work in institutions on a regular basis, it shapes their world views. Fundamentally, this traditional institutionalism (and its modern counterpart institutionalist political economy) emphasizes the legal foundations of an economy (see John R. Commons) and the evolutionary, habituated, and volitional processes by which institutions are erected and then changed (see John Dewey, Thorstein Veblen, and Daniel Bromley.) Institutional economics focuses on learning, bounded rationality, and evolution (rather than assuming stable preferences, rationality and equilibrium). It was a central part of American economics in the first part of the 20th century, including such famous but diverse economists as Thorstein Veblen, Wesley Mitchell, and John R. Commons. Some institutionalists see Karl Marx as belonging to the institutionalist tradition, because he described capitalism as a historically-bounded social system; other institutionalist economists disagree with Marx's definition of capitalism, instead seeing defining features such as markets, money and the private ownership of production as indeed evolving over time, but as a result of the purposive actions of individuals. 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. Since then, there has been heated debate on the role of law (a formal institution) on economic growth. 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. Some of the authors associated with this school include Robert H. Frank, Warren Samuels, Marc Tool, Geoffrey Hodgson, Daniel Bromley, Jonathan Nitzan, Shimshon Bichler, Elinor Ostrom, Anne Mayhew, John Kenneth Galbraith and Gunnar Myrdal, but even the sociologist C. Wright Mills was highly influenced by the institutionalist approach in his major studies.

Jeremy Rifkin: The Zero Marginal Cost Society
 
01:28:03
In his new book, The Zero Marginal Cost Society (Campus, 2014), social theorist Jeremy Rifkin argues that capitalism is becoming a victim of its own success: machines powered by alternative energies are undermining our sense of private property, taking away jobs, and turning consumers into free agents in a global “sharing economy.” While intense economic competition is forcing the introduction of ever newer technologies, productivity is reaching a point where the marginal cost of making additional units is so low they are essentially free. Rifkin describes how the emerging “Internet of things” will accelerate the beginning of an era of free goods and services, precipitating the rise of a global collaborative commons and the shutdown of capitalism: profits dry up, property ownership becomes meaningless, and an economy based on scarcity gives way to an economy of abundance, changing the very nature of society itself. In the wake of these developments, Rifkin envisions a new and more fulfilling form of communitarianism that spreads across the globe. Rifkin was the American Academy in Berlin's Allianz Distinguished Visitor in the Fall 2014. The talk took place at the Allianz Forum in Berlin.
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.
