How do you incentivise:
- manufacturers to innovate, in order to not have to rely on marketing and engineered obsolescence to sell more product than is needed
- infrastructure builders to share resources, in order to save costs which can get passed on to the public,
- service providers and workers to specialize, and not spread themselves too thin, in order to avoid the "jack-of-all-trades" trap and rather to do one thing, and do it well and proper,
- and everyone to charge the fair price that will give them the majority of the market share right away, without having to wait for competition and market forces to force them to charge less. (As a bonus, less competition will in turn reduce market fragmentation and overly redundant standards and infrastructure.)
- how do you get the banks and governments to buy into and play their part in this big picture of efficiency, and
- the public, to understand how it all fits together and to understand the voting power of the money in their wallet
In a nutshell, how do you institutionalize a distinction between necessary and unnecessary work? Does unnecessary work have a place in our society?
I have a lot more to learn, share, ask, and debate on this...
