Eighty five equals three point five billion. This is a troubling equation - representing that 85 of the world's richest people own as much wealth as the 3.5 billion of the world's poorest.

The potential of the open economic development paradigm lies in addressing this equation. The opportunity is the next trillion dollar economy, the open source economy.

What would it mean to bring about the open source economy? From the Open Source Ecology perspective, it would mean that any individual has an authentic choice to participate in one of two forms of economies. The first is the current system, based on centralization and monopoly capitalism. In this system, the general pattern involves that a certain company is pumped up by investors - sometimes based on merit for making human lives better. The [Genuine Progress Indicator] - a measure that includes the distribution of wealth - implies that most companies today are not based on such merit: as GDP grows, the GPI is stagnant. The difference between these curves may be considered as concentration of power and waste.

The second is an economy based on open enterprise - open organizations, collaboration in product development - and in general, access to economic power without competitive waste.

Open Source Ecology is promoting the Distributive Enterprise concept. Distributive Enterprise revolves around the concept of time binding from general semantics - the characteristically human activity of transmitting experience from one generation to another. This ability of future generations to build upon the sum of human knowledge - facilitated by access to information - can be used to create a new economic pattern in society. This pattern - which we call economic time-binding, or Distributive Enterprise - revolves around the concept of enterprises sharing their business models, operations plans, and the myriad of other processes that combine to a successful business.

We are working on three distinct areas of open source information. First, we produce open source blueprints for industrial machines to create an open source industrial system. Second, we are open-sourcing our business models for how we produce these machines. Third, we are producing open organizational models for how successful enterprises engaging in such production can be run. We believe deeply that true sharing has to happen on the economic playing field, and that distributive enterprise is a way to a collaborative economy.
