The new (green) economy, according to Jeremy Rifkin:

How’s this for a disruptive model. Economist Jeremy Rifkin says in the future power will be green, cheap and distributed peer-to-peer. Imagine the internet, only for energy.

Here’s Rifkin’s vision: The Facebook generation seizes the initiative, tearing up conventional thinking about where energy comes from and how it’s delivered. They apply all their nous in sharing information and building seamless networks to create a new, resilient energy economy in its place, powered entirely by renewables – solar, wind, water and tidal, biomass and more besides. This will be nothing short of a new industrial revolution, says Rifkin, and its impacts will be as dramatic and sweeping as any that have gone before.

Great economic revolutions happen”, he says, “when new energy regimes emerge that facilitate more complex civilisations and more energy flow. In turn, they require communication revolutions to manage them. And when communication and energy revolutions come together, historically, they change the economic footprint.”

    The impact of what Jeremy Rifkin is discussing here is mind boggling, to me. Why haven't I ever heard of this guy? And shouldn't his video on youtube have more than a mere 6400 views? Thanks for posting this!

There has been an interesting “audacious” experiment in getting scientists and engineers to work thru business model for their innovations. Read about it here.

Over the last two months the U.S. government has been running one of the most audacious experiments in entrepreneurship since World War II.
They launched an incubator for the top scientists and engineers in the U.S.
This week we saw the results.
63 scientists and engineers in 21 teams made 2,000 customer calls in 8 weeks, turning laboratory ideas into formidable startups. 19 of the 21 teams are moving forward in commercializing their technology.”

    Interesting question indeed! I guess BMG gives you a way to translate an idea into a business while the BSC enables you to drive that business in a sustainable manner.

    Just my thoughts, ofcourse!
  • Anthony Williams Anthony Williams Nov. 24, 2011
    I agree with you ! Thanks

    Interesting approach. Very intuitive and nice to breakdown complicated processes into simple components. Of course key to any business is the ability to implement the plan.

    This is a great lesson in listening to what people really want before providing business opportunities to people who live in poverty. I fully agree that the micro-financing model is too one dimensional. The majority of people don't want to or don't know how to be entrepreneurs. This is true even in non poverty societies. That's why there are more employees than there are entrepreneurs.

    Micro-franchising is a very creative alternative. Identify what consumers want. Then systematize, replicate and scale a franchised business according to those needs. Replicating and giving that franchise to many alleviates the burden of entrepreneurialism. It's clear that most people would be more successful as business owners instead of as entrepreneurs. Less risk.

    My purpose for this project is to have as many alternative views and ideas as possible (and even what may even seem impossible) ! Thanks for the support

    Fascinating example of how to establish a cultural/community based business model in someone elses country:

    Over the years, Italy learned the difficult lesson that it could no longer compete with China on price. So Italy decided to compete on quality. But then, China came to Italy to produce “Made In Italy” fashion!

    Tens of thousands of Chinese began settling in Prato in the late 1980s, transforming the textile hub into a low-end garment manufacturing capital. They have successfully blurred the line between “Made in China” and “Made in Italy,” undermining Italy’s cachet and ability to market its fashion goods exclusively as high end. They have created a thriving, if largely underground, new sector while many Prato businesses have gone under.

    According to the Bank of Italy, Chinese individuals in Prato channel an estimated $1.5 million a day to China, mainly earnings from the garment and textile trade – a new “fast fashion” economy. Profits of that magnitude are not showing up in tax records.

    Along with a profitable business model, negative issues regarding immigration, xenophobia, organized crime, etc. are also referred to.
