Descripción del producto
"Peers Inc is perfectly timed and convincingly argued."--Financial Times "Chase gives historical insight into her cofounding of ZipCar and how the flexibility and ingenuity of the public allows for new business models to be developed...An engaging and quick read on collaboration and the new capitalism."--Library Journal "A provocative discussion of how public investment and private entrepreneurship can combine to shape future advantages from existing used and unused capacities."--Kirkus Reviews "A remarkably comprehensive, and extremely clear, guide to the world's new logic. I'm less interested in how these peer networks make money than in how they make change; as Robin Chase points out, if we're going to fight climate change we're going to need just about everyone engaged. Here's a recipe!"--Bill McKibben, founder 350.org "Clear-eyed, practical and radical insight from a visionary who has already built part of our future. This is just the beginning." --Seth Godin, author of It's Your Turn "Peers Inc will change our ideas about how the economy is shaped and will transform how we work, build businesses and crack pressing societal problems." -- Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail
Reseña del editor
When Robin Chase cofounded Zipcar, she not only started a business but established the foundation for one of the most important economic and social ideas of our time: the collabourative economy. With this important book, she broadens our thinking about the ways in which the economy is being transformed and shows how the Peers Inc model is changing the very nature of capitalism.When the best of people power is combined with the best of corporate power to form Peers Inc" organizations, a potent creative force is released. The Inc" in these collaborations delivers the industrial strengths of significant scale and resources, and the Peers" bring together the individual strengths of localization, specialization, and customization, unlocking the power of the collabourative economy. When excess capacity is harnessed by the platform and diverse peers participate, a completely new dynamic is unleashed. In Peers Inc , Robin Chase brings her provocative insights to work, business, the economy, and the environment, showing: How focusing on excess capacity transforms the economics of what's possible and delivers abundance to all How the new collaboration between the Inc and the Peers enables companies to grow more quickly, learn faster, and deliver smarter products and services How leveraging the Peers Inc model can address climate change with the necessary speed and scale How the Peers Inc model can help legacy companies overcome their shortening life cycle by inviting innovation and evolution Why power parity between the Peers and the Inc is a prerequisite for long-term success How platforms can be built within the existing financial system or outside of it What government can do to enhance economic possibility and protect people working in this new decentralized worldChase casts a wide net, illuminating the potential of the Peers Inc model to address broader issues such as climate change and income inequality, and proves the impact that this innovative economic force can have on the most pressing issues of our time.Ver Descripción del producto

Piketty, Krugman, even Nash, come together through a less theoretical lens into a pragmatic framework. Merges in a strikingly simple manner concepts of the old industrial, capitalist model into the revolutionary peers inc world, offering solutions on the two most relevant issues today: climate change and egalitarian growth.
As Robin says: “Peers Inc is driving the transition from the industrial to the collaborative economy”. Sets the ground for future generations, which understand better that access does not imply property, that sharing makes sense. We have displayed so far inability to change, yet Peers Inc provides hope and answers.
Recently I crossed this statement: "The future belongs to those who have the ability to understand it". And brilliantly written, Robin puts together a tool that increases our ability to grasp our future with inspiration and reality. Definitively, a must-read for all policy makers and global leaders... And those who want to make a difference!
In many thought provoking ways, Chase weaves together lots of the themes I've been mulling over AND focuses in on how combining the use of excess capacity, creating new platforms online and elsewhere, and empowering average users (or peers in her terms) has had a huge impact already in dozens of markets and could have even more in areas like climate change in the not so distant future.
My hunch is that her book's reach could have wider implications, including in my own field peacebuilding where we have yet to find the excess capacity, build the platforms (with her Inc), and enroll the peers (the peacebuilding community and others) to achieve the kind of exponential growth she talks about.
And it's a fun read to boot.
