  1. Pedro, “Next-Gen Resource Based Gift Economy for Prosperity” How about that or this can be used as tag line like “Next Gen Economy – Resource Based Gift Economy for all People”. 🙂

  2. Hey Harald, I don’t remember seeing “gift” in the blog title, last time I dropped by. Nice touch, though. If you eventually need a more extensive label for the next-gen economy, considering the myriad of concepts flying around, here’s my current shot at it: “Resource-based open-source network-governed prosperity-driven gift economy”. Getting that down to one or two words would be awesome, any ideas? An acronym?

    Anyway, I did write a small article 10 months ago on why I don’t use the vanilla term RBE anymore: pedropalhoto.wordpress.com/2012/05/20/from-resource-based-economy-to-community-managed-network-economy/ . I’m not sure whether it is the kind of stuff you’re looking for, though the thought process on labeling RBE and alternatives is there, which could be an interesting subject for some people. Choosing the most appropriate words to communicate concepts is a very challenging task I’ve learned from my past year activism activities.

    I’ll stay glued to see what comes out of the submissions, maybe I might also come up with something new in sync with what you’re after. Get creative people!

    1. Hi Pedro, very interesting article and I completely agree with you. I have mention the many terms for this on this page: www.theresourcebasedeconomy.com/about/

      Resource Based Economy (RBE), Natural Resources Economy, Resource Economy, Moneyless Economy (MLE), Love Based Economy (LBE), Gift Economy (GE), Priceless Economic System (PES), Trust Economy (TE), Voluntary Collaborative Economy (VCE), Sharing Society, Resource Based Society, Moneyless Society, Love Based Society, are only a few possible alternative terms for this.

      And now you have one more. A good one I would say. Still, I think no term will fully describe this alone.

      Please feel free to submit your article for publishing on this blog as well. It would be good to have a discussion about it. You can now register as a contributor directly. I added info about that in the above article. 🙂

      1. I take up your challenge, Harald. I’ll expand on the original article, by adding what I’ve learned in the meantime and also integrating some of the suggestions you and Sushant commented. I should get it done for review in a couple of weeks. On the lack of better ideas at the moment, “The Next-Gen Economy Concepts and Labels” will be the working title.
