  • I agree that collaborative consumption is here to stay but not for the stupid utopian dream of having community and "sharing" with others but mainly because it is affordable and convenient.

    People (speaking in generalization and macroscopic scale) don't Uber to connect with the driver, it's because they need a ride, it's a ride-sharing service and not car-sharing service. While it's seen as economic for a car to be used by two or more persons, it fulfills only the need of the customer, while the other party driving around not because of their pure angelic intention to give people they don't know rides, but simply for the sake of gaining profits.

    When it comes to sharing with strangers you need a strong motivation to do the deed (money). In this modern society with Fordism that led to mass consumption most people are raised and socialized to consume and own things. Objects help us identify ourselves, like fashion help people to express themselves. Now, it's interesting to look at the shift of ownership to access, but it's stupid to get carried away with the idea of economy based on trust of human goodness or man's concern for the good of society (quoting Sartre there)

  • All very well, if a bit overhyped. I think we all know these trends are well under way. The really interesting questions though are about deflation, the future of money and the tax base as well as the monetization, and therefore production, of asynchronous dematerialized goods and services. My impression is that we don't even know how to think about this, but that it isn't going to be an uneventful ride.

    It also should be pointed out that access to the sharing economy requires having something to share, as well as trivial things like leisure time and internet access. It similarly requires having sufficient motivation to offer to share, a motivation which presumably derives from the value of reciprocity. Absent redistribution that is going to leave many shareable goods out of the sharing economy and exclude many people from it. What are the social implications of this?

  • I chose this video because of how she talks about consumption , this culture having side effects.

  • This video has great evidence in support of the resource based economy proposed by the Venus Project and advocated for by the Zeitgeist Movement.

  • she is not talking about collectivism but barter and trade across the borders. the ability to use what you have to make money on it or gaining something else you value more from someone else. collectivism would be they take the money and dvd from you by force and give to themselves or someone else for a fee to themselves. or they decide what when how and what your allowed to keep and barter away or what they just take, the 100 dollars would just be taken away from you and you would get nothing in return no interest no nothing.

  • Trendy Isn't It? Redefining What's Yours, Mine and Ours!
    Manipulative Transformation of the Definition of Sharing and Ownership to Resource and its Management
    These people despise groups who may challenge them.

    Of course, all in the name of saving the Earth! And so touchy feely trendy to boot! Soon we won't be able to drive a car on our own!

    They are trying to move the center of gravity for sovereignty from the individual to the collective. Anything organic (like sharing) must be controlled and mandated.
     
    They try to dignify the damage Amazon is doing to entrepreneurship by reclassifying the industry. The placement of Agenda 21 (Mean Green Meme) and ICLEI to be trendy mainstream.

  • I'm really surprised she didn't mention ESCROW? (funds held by a third party until the buyer receives goods and is happy) This is how China does most of its business & how online megastores like AliExpress exist. Even paypal finally implemented a 'pay on delivery option' because they totally get it so kudos to them. Even scoring systems although very useful are still vulnerable. In my experience an escrow service & scoring system provides the best security for us, the consumer.

  • You will know that horrible point when your brother (who’s been a loser forever, I’ve gotta tell you) gets an amazing girl to fall for him in, like a couple of weeks? Absolutely, that happened. I realize I ought to think well done, but I wish it was me. He said he learned from the Cupid Love System (Search in Google for it). I wish to hide in a cave instantly.

  • Life sucks. My good friend has started going out with a ten as 8 weeks back he registered to a site named Master Attraction (Google it if you wish to learn more.) I'm so jealous because I wish to fall madly in love too. How come it's so hard? I'm gonna take a peek at this Jake Ayres man's information to check out if it may help someone like me. Odd point is, my friend previously had Zero results with girls. How does one improve so swiftly? His lady's like a model…

  • Well.. Why doesn't she just come right out and say it!? Money sucks, capitalism, is destroying the planet, ownership is a contrived obsolete notion, private property is an illusion and we are in need of an entirely new socioeconomic system! Oh well.. Still a great video 😀 I guess if she mentioned the Zeitgeist Movement or The Venus Project she would get banned from Ted Talk.. So this is at least getting people to think.

  • Collaborative consumption would most definately exist in a totally free market, however it would not be the only form of economic trade.

  • yes cars are only used for one hour a day on average, but that one hour of usage is at the same time for most people, i dont think there is much spare capacity at peak demand, denting the usefulness of collaborative consumption

    "where access is better than ownership"

    No, thank you.

  • I like her passion and idealism on the topic, and although I agree that we will soon be sing an influx of this "sharing culture", it has been 3 years since this talk and I still don't know anybody who regularly uses zipcar or trading sites. It is a great concept in theory, but hyper consumerism and the need for ownership still prevails

  • Sometimes the world is a seemingly cruel and harsh place. Bad things seem to happy every moment. Sooner or later though, especially with the aid of things like the internet, i believe there will be a shift in perception. I think soon we are going to reaffirm the idea that we are not on our own, not in our rooms, not in our horrible job, not in the mundane stress infested day to day routine we call our lives. I think we'll start to see how we are all here together, sharing this great experience.

  • Go Rachel Botsman! Collaborative consumption is a great movement that provides options for everyone to live in ways that strengthens communities, empowers individuals (helping those that are time poor or resource poor) and in reducing our environmental impacts. NeighboursWeb is a new collaborative consumption Australian startup that is going to change the way you live! Check us out at Pozible…

  • Not once did I hear her say government should force any of this to happen, so it's clearly not communism. Socialist? Sure, but not state socialism, which is what everyone's knee-jerk thought is to the word "socialism", and which is morally wrong due to the force used. This is not state involved in the slightest, purely market. This is the good, classical view of socialism, where people voluntarily collaborate for similar goals. I'm a voluntarist and I have absolutely no problem with this idea.

  • Why do you need money in a ''sharing economy?'' To keep elitism? To keep power, control,…by the coorperations? The only thing what you want is to slow down consumership, nothing else.
