The Zero Marginal Cost path to Society Growth
Giant vertical, centralised hierarchies are anomalies of economic history.
Horizontal, zero-marginal cost, global networks pursuing Society Growth come next.
Centralised structures centralise power and prosperity at high marginal cost and high resource usage in the narrow pursuit of Economic Growth (maximising monetary transfers). Distributed structures distribute power and prosperity at Zero Marginal Cost and less resource usage in pursuit of Society Growth (collective wisdom, prosperity and satisfaction).
Zero Marginal Cost Networks (internet, massively scalable blockchainified databases, wisdom networks, mobile devices, open source software etc) and the resulting Network Society development model offer a superior, efficient, effective global and costless means to achieve Society Growth in sectors, countries and the Global Village. The fragmentation, centralisation and monetisation of every 'thing' by the Industrial Economy development model can only achieve 1/3 of the potential life and less than 1/3 of the output delivered by the Network Society.
Quickly switch between things, books, sectors, countries, languages ... only 3 clicks to participate or contribute to any 'thing' in the world!
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 all have a role to play in driving 'Society Growth'. Join a group! Start a venture! Make the Wisdom Pledge! Together, we can drive Society Growth around the world. Ventures can be launched in 90-180 days. Transformation in 2-5 years
Wisdom Networks enable and accelerate these Shifts and deliver prosperity earlier
The "Productive Knowledge" of society creates prosperity. Organising it physically costs trillions, takes decades and now suffers diminishing returns. Organising it virtually costs millions, takes months and provides a jump in productivity and the opportunity to achieve outcomes not previously considered possible.
Wisdom Networks bring all 6 elements of wisdom to every person and "things" in society. The Industrial Economy only moves information things among centralised structures.
By introducing a standard way for people to exchange wisdom, Wisdom Networks can create and share Productive Knowledge across organisation, industry, country and globally.
Network Society is a mesh (or pyramid) of linked country, sector and global Wisdom Networks
Each network seamlessly integrates with others to crowd create a mesh of people, their devices and things in the Internet of Everything (IoE)
Industrial Economy physically moves 3 "things" to drive economy and delivers economic stagnation.
PROCESS: Industrial Economies moves 3 things (data, information, community) to millions of physical structures. They are exponential complex and increasingly inefficient and ineffective. Productive Knowledge is fragmented and lost in the complexity of moving things around. Everyone has a ¼ acre of the information landscape that they toil.
OUTCOMES: Centralised structures centralise power, governance and prosperity. An Industrial Economy drives an economy, not society prosperity. After a century of industrial grade centralisation, power and prosperity is centralised. Centralisation may also have crossed a key threshold and endanger global sustainability and peace.
Network Society organises all 6 wisdom things virtually to maximise "Productive Knowledge" and prosperity
PROCESS: A Network Society leaves all 6 things where they are. A few interlinked wisdom networks (country and sector) come “Over the Top” to organise “things” in person to person networks and focus the wisdom of crowds on prioritised outcomes. Wisdom Networks are analogous to combine (information) harvesters that work the land for the everyone, driven by everyone and deliver collective prosperity, accessiblity, transparency and Network Society.
OUTCOMES: Distributed networks distribute power, governance and prosperity. Network Society is exponentially simple, productive, efficient and locally and globally effective. Productive Knowledge and prosperity are pursued in real-time by everyone, everywhere. If you don’t need to move “things”, society uses significantly less resources (oil, concrete, minerals, infrastructure) for a given level of productive knowledge and prosperity. Distributed structures distribute power and prosperity amongst all people.
Information everywhere, no meaning

Wisdom Networks accelerate the Shift from Industrial Economy to Network Society. This is analogous of a shift from candles to electricity. Developing countries can jump an economic development stage and go straight to Network Society. This is analogous to jumping the investment in fixed copper telecommunications networks and installing cheaper, faster mobile phone networks.
