During this radio interview we discuss the downsides of capitalist value accounting practices and the blockchain projects that are looking to create alternative / regenerative value accounting systems. We also talk about how many technologists want to change the world but don't have a good framework for understanding the world, Dr. Manski's idea around the "Global Technological Commonwealth" that would be ideal for a post-capitalist world, and the differences between DLTs like blockchain and Holochain.

“Against the urgency of people dying in the streets, what in God's name is the point of cultural studies? ... If you don't feel that as one tension in the work that you are doing, theory has let you off the hook.” ~ Stuart Hall
I contribute to the study of democracy in the social sciences by theorizing a kind of democratic economic polity of the global through the co-construction of a global technological commonwealth. I empiricize this by describing the various cases of blockchain applications currently in existence - not simply as examples - but as evidence of an immanent politics that are in these approaches that implies a global order in which economic democracy subsumes the state rather than the more common approach of the creation of a democratic global state to regulate and define the economy. What is the future are these agents who are building the next system actually after is a global civil society in which the state is simply a servant of economic democracy. The social economy comes to dominate the polity as opposed to the polity dominating the economy. The question for the future is how on a global scale will blockchains enable this to become emergent?
Fellow at the Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution
The Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution is a nonprofit organization rooted in the belief that the American Revolution is a living tradition whose greatest promise is democracy. In order to help achieve that promise, Liberty Tree works to create a society in which communities and individuals have the desire, skills, and capacity to participate in the vital decisions that affect their lives. Such a society, we believe, is most likely to emerge from a genuine democratic revolution -- one that focuses on deep structural, legal, and institutional change, dismantles oppression in all its forms, and is organized through the transformation of communities, institutions and local governments into conscious agents of democratic change.
Former WI University and College Instructor
UCSB, UW-Madison, Madison Area Technical College
Good communications skills are the key to a successful college experience and any future career. I have a Masters Degree in Life Sciences Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and I taught Introduction to Communications Arts. When I teach this course, I not only focus on the skills involved in selecting, researching, organizing and writing persuasive messages, but also on teaching students the skills they need to present their ideas effectively in public. In a small, supportive classroom environment, students learn to communicate their ideas effectively using verbal, written, and visual techniques. They also learn important listening skills, and peer evaluations of student speeches are an important component of the course. At Madison Area Technical College I taught Introduction to Sociology and Contemporary American Society. At George Washington University I taught Research Methods for the Social Sciences.
