How OSCE conflicts with Business As Usual

Let’s list some of the business reasons against OSCE so we can find solutions to those inhibitors.

“Artificial scarcity describes the scarcity of items even though either the technology and production, or sharing capacity exists to create an abundance, as well as the use of private property laws to create scarcity where otherwise there would not be.” –

“Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence in industrial design is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete, that is, unfashionable or no longer functional after a certain period of time.” –

I tink the greatest comflict is in the mind of course. However there are some essential questions we need to answer:

  • how can you make money (that is make a living) when you Open Source your ideas, knowledge, materials and production methods?
  • how can you make sure that your Open Source information is not highjacked by mulitnational corporations, undemocratic regimes and people with criminal or anti-social plans for purposes that you would definitely not want?
  • how can Open Source expand and survive in competition to the old ways? How can it grow under the current debt-money pressure? How can it find investors that will not extract maximum profit but seek maximum common benefit?

just to name a few…

How can it find investors? You’re looking for “Impact Investors” - see if there is a local Impact Hub near you. You will meet them there. If not, start googling.
