People, Place & Global Order : Foundations of a Networked Political Economy Paperback / softback
Globalisation and technology are combining to change socio-economic relationships.
The pace of change and uncertainty of the world of work - no job for life, zero-hours contracts, diminished pension rights and a growing delivery dependence on digital networks over human contact - are creating a profound unease that may be unprecedented in the Western world.
If organizational patterns are not sufficiently adjusted and businesses continue as usual, we run the risk of alienating entire groups within society with many feeling `left behind'.
Using deliberately accessible language for students and the general reader, the authors draw upon socially innovative models of economic organisation from the nineteenth century to present a model to master this new economy for the common good.
The book illustrates, with practical examples, how digital networks can be leveraged and provides a commons checklist to identify suitable conditions for organisations to flourish and provide the means to more effectively evaluate opportunities.
