COVID Economic Recovery

From Open Source Ecology

OSE's goals are 3 main ones, personally and politically:

  1. Developing collaborative design protocols for Open Source Product Development that can lead to the Open Source Economy.
  2. Mass creation of right livelihood via distributed production.
  3. Personal growth towards a high level of health and Self-Determination

Collaborative Design for Open Source, Distributed Production

Collaborative design could shift efficiencies of economies 10x, and this would be an unprecedented paradigm shift. OSE can work on this most effectively by refining the tools and protocols that it uses for open source product development. This assures access to wealth everywhere, and promotes a shift to entrepreneurial activity by a society of capable producers, rather than dependent consumers. This clashes with notions of specialization, where in order to specialize into narrow fields, people outsource life-sustaining productive activity to others. OSE calls for a shift where cities produce all that they need as Circular Economies.

Thus, right here with a circular economy we have at least a 10x increase in wealth, making for a structural improvement in the economic system.

How best could OSE impact this? OSE can work on this most effectively by refining the tools and protocols that it uses for open source product development.

Cost of Living


If you examine the highest costs in one's life, it is housing, cars, and food. See Cost of Living. Is it possible to address housing, cars, and food with distributed production? OSE can promote a global campaign of a shift to Seed Eco-Homes with integrated production as the replacement of cookie cutter development. This could apply to new development of city blocks, as well as of new lands, to provide more appropriate housing. See Enterprise Model Innovation.

With cost of living consideration in mind, this is an area we can hit immediately with 3D printed building materials, and further on with house panel 3D printers.


Cars: cars integrates with distributed growing of biomass, and setup of biomass production everywhere with modern engines running flowable charcoal fuel - a regenerative, carbon-negative option where part of the charcoal is put back into the soil permanently. In order to make this effective, this would have to include heating of some sort, or power generation via heat engines.
