The people centered economy

AI is cutting labor costs and workers are struggling to be valuable. The People Centered Economy (PCE) is a ‘Copernican Revolution’ placing people, not tasks, at the center of the economy. PCE has a handy definition of the economy: people create and exchange value, served by organization. In PCE, innovation makes people value each other more (not less) and the answer to the ‘future of work’ is simple: people need as much innovation for earning as there is for spending. 

Disrupting Unemployment

Innovation disrupts things. Can it disrupt unemployment? Internet co-inventor Vint Cerf and David Nordfors, co-founders of i4j Innovation for Jobs, say IT and artificial intelligence should be seen as tools for tailoring meaningful new jobs for workers. In this groundbreaking book they present ideas, scenarios and policy recommendations in a vision of a new golden era for the middle-class society.

Coolabilities

All people have different abilities, strengths, and challenges, and people with disabilities are no different. People with disabilities are usually defined by what they cannot do. so far, it has not been possible to get away from that labeling for various reasons. Many people with disabilities have valuable strengths that are sometimes unknown to themselves and definitively ignored by their surroundings. We call those ‘Coolabilities’.
