... there is a ''crisis of value'', i.e. that the old value regime does not adequately recognize and reward the new value that is created.   Michel Bauwens, Chiang Mai, August 15, 2016

Deep Dive - rethinking value

September 5th to September 4th [no website available]

A gathering of 20 thinkers and doers, from various disciplines (economy, anthropology, philosophy, activists, ...), locked in a small castle 20 minutes south of Berlin, for 3 days, working up to 12 hours a day to flesh out the basis of a new theory of value

The current world is still dominated by two broad lines of thought: capitalism and Marxism. Our economy is organized based on two major and conflicting theories of value: the capitalist value theory (the value of a commodity is its price, set through market dynamics) and Marx' labor theory of value (the value of things stems from the labor required to create them). New economic practices cannot be understood within these two theoretical frameworks. We need a new theory of value. 

A full report will be soon published, stay tuned...

September 1st to September 3rd

Presenting Friday September 2, 14.00-15.30 hrs. in the session: Design Global, Manufacture Local.

The “design global, manufacture local” (DGML) model builds on the conjunction of the digital commons (e.g. open knowledge and design) with desktop manufacturing and automation technologies (e.g. 3D printing and CNC machines). It describes the processes where design is developed, shared and improved as a global digital commons, whereas the actual customised manufacturing takes place locally. DGML could be a model of sustainable development which recognises the limits and scarcities posed by finite resources and effectively organises material activities accordingly.
Moderator: Michiel Schwarz
