  29. 29. Looking to the future “In the next phase of our global economy we will see experimentation and ultimately adoption of peer-to-peer models where value creation mirrors value capture and the people who actually provide the value in each marketplace reap most of the benefits. New technologies like blockchain are critical to this, as it calls for an open and distributed framework for interpersonal transactions that reach beyond a single company or government ownership.” - LISA GANSKY
  30. 30. Looking to the future “There isn’t just one, inevitable future of work. Let us apply the power of our technological imagination to practice forms of cooperation and collaboration. Worker–owned cooperatives could design their own apps-based platforms, fostering truly peer-to-peer ways of providing services and things, and speak truth to the new platform capitalists.” - NATHAN SCHNEIDER
