The Share-Washing of Late Stage Capitalism

May 17, 2019 at 12:43 pm | Articles | Ruben Talley -

我記得在以前 共享經濟這個詞 意味著實際意義的非盈利目的共享 然而現在 當我錄這個視頻的時候 我找到的大多數卻是與 矽谷 、大公司有千絲萬縷干係的 信奉新自由主義的 聲稱能使我們變成所謂 創業者 的所謂共享經濟 在熙熙攘攘的街上公然叫賣 任何我們可以轉變成商品的東西 這無疑是一個悲劇 因爲共享經濟應該有更多改變社會面貌的潛力 它能有效節制物質過度生產 從而減緩氣候變化 如果人們只需要借東西而不是完全地占有 又或者將物質在群體閒互相輪流分享 那麽我們就能夠在這個浪費型經濟中 大大地減少過剩生產 除此之外, 它還能引導人們參與到社會關懷活動中 幫助我們從”經濟增長“為導向 ”經濟增長“為導向 的資本主義思維中解脫出來 但我們需要進一步明確何爲”分享“ Chris Martin寫道: 共享基本含義是排除任何形式 使任何一方或多方金融增值的交換 因此基於P2P資產租賃的發明—— 例如Airbnb(愛彼迎) 就被排除出共享經濟之外 但是, 如果分享的是使用資產的途徑而不是資產本身 那麽就和金錢上的獲利就變得不相關了 所以這種基於P2P的創新就包含在共享經濟之中 這種資產“共享”理論的支持者認爲 共享平臺例如Airbnb、Uber和Task Rabbit “授能”個人去從其未充分利用資產、時間或技術中賺錢 成爲“微”企業家 同時充當工人滿足消費者的需求 他們認爲這種行爲更有效地調配資源, 從而有助於建立更加可持續的消費模式 即著重個人使用權而非擁有權 最後他們還認爲, 這種模式能夠使權力機構去中心化 干預現存的政體 而促成一種基於人文、環境、自由、民主、正義價值觀的“新”經濟模式 那麽好吧! 我喜歡正義 那我們就看看這種所謂共享經濟帶來的“革命性”改變
