Read more about this groundbreaking initiative here - we’ve done a bit of a write up on OFN Learn. I think this is a seriously awesome initiative for two reasons. Land ownership and investment. We need to evolve alternative and ethical ways to do both, and this project is not just talking about it but actually putting in place practical and democratic mechanisms. It’s not just enough to create alternatives to traditional capitalist economy, we also need to come up with workable and scaleable ways to transfer resources from the old economy to the new.
An example of an investment model that attempts to address this is capped returns which ORIC is exploring. Would be awesome to hear of other investment models that people know about that are 1) ethical and also 2) transfer resources at scale to people creating new/regenerative economies.
