EMERGENCE OF THE COMMONS BASED ECONOMY [CfCE]

James Quilligan as a renowned commons theorist/activist and policy analyst developing insights about managing local and global Commons demonstrates how in a Commons-based Economy :

- consumers become the producers of their own resources
- trusts set a cap on the extraction and use of a resource to preserve it for future generations
- businesses flourish by renting a proportion of the resources outside the cap for extraction and production
- governments tax a percentage of these rents, funding a basic income for citizens and the restoration of depleted resources
- the power of decision-making returns to the people, enabling them to participate in the decisions that affect them directly
- the traditional property ownership model is eclipsed by a trusteeship model of sustainability, quality of life and well-being
- the lessons of community-based resource management have major implications for post-liberal forms of multilateralism and global governance.
