The rise of the Platforms Commons
Platforms have radically disrupted businesses as we know them. Platform companies such as Amazon, Uber, Netflix and the likes have significantly impacted economies and societies, not only by displacing some of the world’s biggest firms but also by transforming our social fabric.
More than 30% of global economic activity — some $60 trillion — could be mediated by digital platforms in six years’ time. When that happens, we envision collectives co-owning these platforms to drive population-scale change as an alternative to corporation run platforms.

The rise of the Commons
The commons, the cultural and natural resources, are accessible to all members of society by design; however, the intellectual commons, or General Intellect is not.
Intellectual Commons loosely translates to everybody’s knowledge + technology advancements of society. This technology could either be the foundation of wealth accumulation in the hands of the few; or could be harnessed by collectives.
