Money or the structure of socio-economic evolution


What does a house, digital data and social connections have in common?

They all are asset classes of a physical-digital economic space.

What does a village marketplace, YouTube and a blockchain have in common?

They all are resource allocation mechanisms.

What does trust and geography have in common?

Both will be fundamentally transformed by the digital revolution.

Book II builds on the twin concepts of “reciprocity” and “social contracts” discussed in Book I and introduces a new game analogy to better understand the impact of digitalization on our incumbent systems. For example, who will be the new “players” of this post-modern socio-economic game? How will new reciprocity mechanisms impact geopolitics and social rules? Can new game generate sustainable systemic behaviors over the medium-term?

Book II identifies a profound paradigm shift that will enable the emergence of a fourth family of reciprocity mechanism. This will result in a novel and complementary resource allocation process that should gradually help us address some of our major social and environmental challenges at the start of the third millennium.

“Reciprocity in the Third Millennium – Book II” is the sequel to “Reciprocity in the Third Millennium – Book I”, Editions Slatkine.
