15 processes (or shifts) RAPID EVOLUTION FROM CENTRALISED HIERARCHIES TO DISTRIBUTED NETWORKS: The Industrial Evolution used hierarchies to organise financial and human capital locally to build the Industrial Economy. The Industrial Economy is exhausted and evolution is implementing Network Society but it is delayed by strong resistance from the status quo. Network Society will use ... Read More
In this article, we provide a copy of our submission to the OGP team in the Australian Prime Minister and Cabinet's Office which includes an overview of departmental wisdom networks that could achieve a people driven Network Society.
We have changed our domain name from wisdomnetworks.im to wisdom.to wisdomnetworks.im. The wisdomnetworks.im domain name will redirect to the new name. Why the change It is shorter. It is more memorable! Think wisdom.to/[countries] and wisdom.to/[sectors] where the specific country or sector name follows the wisdom.to domain name. New tagline Wisdom Networks - The Zero Marginal ... Read More
The purpose of a Network Society is 'Society Growth' by maximising collective wisdom, collective prosperity and collective satisfaction at ‘Zero Marginal Cost‘ in sectors, countries and the Global Village for everyone, everywhere. We, now, suggest 'Society Growth' and its three elements are the three primary objectives of Wisdom Networks and the Network Society development model. ... Read More
The The School of Life is an essential resource for people, families and society. They offer wisdom (as it is typically understood) in short videos across hundreds of topics. Topics are summarised into short videos. Three videos on countries, their societies and values are provided below.
Massively scalable blockchainified databases are the next phase of the internet. In its current form, Blockchain is limited in terms of size, scalability and latency and is not a world changing technology. The next incarnation of Blockchain will not be Blockchain, but massively scalable blockchainified databases which overcome these limitations and are a profound technology that can scale and change the world. As few as 100 blockchainified databases (by sector or country) could organise the world. This article introduces the applications for Blockchainified databases and then provides a comprehensive overview of the technology.
Brazil Wisdom added which completes the BRICS Wisdom set of countries. BRICS Wisdom is an example of Regional Wisdom. Regional Wisdom applies the Network Society development model achieve virtual, not physical, regional integration of markets, product, labour, services, democracy, industry, education, health and other key sectors.
In this article, we'll describe the differences and similarities between Blockchain and Wisdom Networks and provide 20+ examples of using Blockchain in society. Blockchain, Wisdom Networks and the internet are all Zero Marginal Cost Networks.
In this article, we will highlight the need for bottom-up citizen movements to catalyse change in a world dominated by centralist structures, introduce DiEM25 as a movement to democratise Europe and highlight the potential of using wisdom networks to achieve the democratisation within 2 -5 years.
Inevitable evolution, the New Silk Road and the Network Society development model all contribute to a global community that returns to wealth creation (redefined as collective prosperity, collective satisfaction and collective wisdom), win-win scenarios and peace.
An Industrial Economy reduces a person's (potential) life to materialism, confusion, isolation and survival and the prospect of a 'basic income' (for unemployment or retirement) that an Industrial Economy can not afford. This is not life. A Network Society empowers every individual with collective prosperity (beyond materialism), collective satisfaction and collective wisdom in a highly productive society structure that can not only fund a 'Basic Income', but also motivates individuals with a bonus from contribution to 'things' and the opportunity to contribute to any individual or society purpose in any sector or country.
We have developed a 1 page Infographic of Network Society vision and purpose. This will complement the 1 page Network Society plan infographic. The two pages provide a 2-page Network Society vision/purpose and plan and will appear together on country pages and combined in a single PDF for download.
We have prepared a one page plan which summarises everything in one page. It includes: An overview of the ‘The Shift’ from Industrial Economy to Network Society; Attributes of an ‘Industrial Economy’; Attributes of a Network Society; Attributes of the ‘Trapped Transition’; and A ‘Punctuated Reform’ plan to restore transition, evolution, wisdom, prosperity and peace
Epocalypse is an amalgamation of four words - economic, epoch, apocalypse and collapse. Nothing to fear. It's a beneficial shift. It's evolutiions way of encouraging a beneficial 'Shift' from Industrial Economy to Network Society. We only need fear continuing efforts to maintain the Industrial Economy model of organising society.
Wisdom is perfect knowledge and optimal action and can only be possessed by large global networks, not individuals. Wisdom Networks are the next stage in the evolutionary process that is organising every "thing" using the internet. Crowds make better decisions than hierarchies (given 4 attributes).
Industrial Economy fragmentation and centralisation mean that the 8 forms of capital are fragmented and isolated in millions of centralised structures. Industrial Economy only organises financial wealth and financialises material wealth. Wisdom Networks and the resulting Network Society consolidate and focus all 8 forms of capital within sector and country networks to drive individual, sector, country and global prosperity.
Societies cease to function for a variety of reasons including collapse, crisis dysfunction or war. They are not resilient and can take decades to reconstruct using a Network Society development model. Network Society development model offers a hot and cold start for failed states that mean reconstruction of society can take weeks/months.
This is an extract of our Telecommunications Wisdom page. Telecommunications companies are perfectly positioned to launch and grow Network Society within sectors and across . The next stage of economic development is to organise industries within the Internet of Everything (IoE), just like social networks achieved for social. 30 mobile telecommunications companies could transform 76.1% of the global population.
We will explore the obsolescence of giant centralised hierarchies in a more comprehensive article in the future. In the interim, we want to introduce the view that giant centralised hierarchies are an anomaly in economic history as a means to organise society, not the norm, and natural processes of evolution are trying to transform our Industrial Economy into a Network Society, or a 'Collaborative Commons' structure.
One network could provide comprehensive citizen participation, governance, transparency, wisdom and access to government and industry. Stage 1 would deliver Government Wisdom with a specific focus on collective governance. Stage 2 could deliver broader citizen participation. Stage 3 could deliver build on collective government wisdom and include the democratic process. Additional stages could include industry governance and other aspects of society.
Malaysia provides an example of a country that has chosen “committed metamorphosis” in intent and backed it with statute, a “turnaround” private sector CEO, a dedicated department empowered by statute and significant funding. There is a large national campaign directed toward national unity and transformation. All over Malaysia, the “1 Malaysia” logo is prominent and so are specific references to it’s two themes of “Economic Transformation” and “Economic Transformation”.
Government are establishing “Transformation” departments. These departments are usually tasked with the specific task of “transformation” is a term without a clear meaning in the context of a country. We’ll explore the definition of “transformation”, potential roles of these departments and explore 2 examples from Australia and Malaysia
Australia has the prosperity of a first world nation, and the complexity of a country with much lesser prosperity. On the Atlas of Economic Complexity, it is an outlier and has acquired prosperity far greater than its Economic Complexity would deliver. Many Australians would be surprised to understand who its economic peers are, or that the phrase "The Lucky Country" is a negative phrase and not a term of endearment. Perhaps, the reversion to the mean has started. Growth in personal debt to record levels delayed declines in standards of living temporarily. Record immigration was largely responsible for keeping recent GDP growth positive. Eventually, Australia's prosperity reverts to its Economic Complexity peers. Perhaps, that process has already started. For the quarter ended June 2015, ">Real net national disposable income per person fell 1.2% for the quarter and contracted 2.3% over the past year"
OEC upgraded The Atlas of Economic Complexity is the leading predictor of a country's prospertity (more here. The visualisations created in the Atlas were created by the Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC). The tool to create the visualisations has become a leading source of trade data visualisations. It has been upgraded to include 2013 additional ... Read More
There are four inevitable Shifts that deliver prosperity in the 21st Century. Wisdom Networks enable and accelerate these Shifts and deliver prosperity earlier. The 4 Shifts are: The Silk Road / The rise of Eurasia centralised to distributed structures the rise of the social commons industrial economy to network society New Silk Road / The ... Read More
The New Silk Road is the most significant and influential economic development project of the 21st Century. It will define and reshape the relationships and trade between all countries going forward. China's New Silk Road promises prosperity across Eurasia. It will probably be the number one driver of prosperity for the world in the 21st ... Read More
Immigration drives economic growth. Conventional economic development brings people to a country physically. The infrastructure costs of additional physical population are significant. The benefits are derived from each persons work, energy and innovation increase GDP. However, people can create, work and innovate in a country without being physically present. Estonia is the first country to ... Read More
