            While the experts talk about the problems of our current economic systems, communities across the world are creating opportunities for developing sustainable and more equitable economies. I think this is another strong argument for my contention that the solutions are going to come from local efforts multiplied many times over. Today’s post from Shareable is a great introduction to what is happening in the Canadian province of Quebec.

          City Lab, part of The Atlantic media group, is a treasure chest of great ideas that are already happening in communities around the world. In this essay we get reflections on the ancient sharing economy and how it is being reinvented in places like Toronto, with its Sharing Depot and other emerging ways of shifting the emphasis from “owning” to “sharing.” Don’t miss this fascinating and idea-filled read!

          The Atlantic is a very valuable publication; it offers cogent analyses on the central issues of our time. Today’s post follows in my series on remaking and transforming the economy so that all benefit, not just a few. This essay cuts to the heart of the problem in the economy we have constructed over the 20th century; it is fundamentally flawed in its conception and implementation. Read this with a mind open to new possibilities.
