Manifesting a Material Commons – A Trialogue


KMO remote-hosts a trialogue between Michel BauwensDmytri Kleiner and John Restakis on establishing a peer-production economy in which economic rents are distributed to every member of a community who then vote with their dollars to decide how to deploy capital and determine the direction and priorities of their society. To lay the groundwork for the conversation, KMO provides some rough and ready definitions for the concepts of Georgismeconomic rents and neoliberalism
