By Diego Isabel, founder, Global Hub for the Common Good.
A social entrepreneur and change-maker, as he defines himself, Diego Isabel sees in the light bulb question a metaphor about the possibility to change a system, the economy, towards a model more centred in the common good. According to him, it’s not going to be easy: there is the need of engaging a diverse amount of peers, and we must achieve a higher degree of collaboration among public and private organisations. Check the short video below for Isabel’s complete reflections on the topic. His contribution was possible in collaboration with the Ouishare Fest Barcelona event.

Commons-based production generally, and commons-based peer production in particular, are the most important and surprising organizational innovation to have emerged in networked economy and society. Surprising, because throughout the 20th century our intellectual frame for understanding production was dominated by a binary vision: state and market. By the end of the last century, we had shifted from a view of state- and managerial-hierarchy-based production as dominant to a view of market- or decentralized price-based organization as the dominant model.
