CASE 016 - Freeconomy
The Freeconomy Community set up by Mark Boyle aim's to help reconnect people in their local communities through the simple act of sharing. Not only is sharing our resources better for the environment, it saves you money and builds friendships with those people who live closest to you. It is what we call a WIN-WIN-WIN situation, but could it work on a world wide scale, would the people accept it, would the governments and corporations allow it to happen, well its slowly happening on a world scale people are creating their own world to live in without the need to be apart of the forever en-debted moneytry system, (please read CASES 52 - The banking system and the previous case 15 - Peak oil for info as to why this freeconomy idea, community and world would work
Everything is shared for FREE on Freeconomy, and no money changes hands between members.
