Peerconomy

  • Barriers to Entry
    • If you pick up tasks which a project needs to have handled, you become a member of the project. If you want to start a new project, you have to find sufficient other people willing to produce what you want to produce.
  • Control of Physical Sources
    • Controlled by those who use them. Resources are available for usage for those who want them—for free, if there is enough of a resource for all who want it, otherwise those who are ready to contribute most effort will get them.
  • Control of Virtual Sources
    • Free
  • Cost Recovery for Wages
    • There are no wages, but the effort to get what you want is shared: if you spend effort for others, others will spend effort for you.
  • Cost Recovery for permanent use of Object
    • The amount of effort required to produce an object is contributed by those want to use it. If there are more demands for some object than can be satisfied, those ready to spend most effort will get it—the additionally spent effort will be distributed among all produced objects (making them all slightly cheaper).
  • Cost Recovery for temporary use of Object
    • Same as above, but effort to contribute can be shared by those who use an object over time.
  • Cost Recovery for Exclusive use of Land
    • Land and all other resources are available for usage for those who want them—for free, if there is enough of a resource for all who want it, otherwise those who are ready to contribute most effort will get them. The contributed effort will be distributed among all produced objects (making them all slightly cheaper).
  • Distribution of Land Tax funds

  • Cost Recovery: Virtual Sources
    • Produced information goods are free. The effort required to produce them can be shared among those who like to have them just like any other effort.
  • Profit, 'surplus', or "Price above cost"
    • There is no profit. "Price above cost" (effort required for getting a good surmounting the effort required for producing it) is distributed among all produced objects (making them all slightly cheaper).
  • Who owns the product?
    • There is no ownership, only usage (possession).
