Building The New Economy

We’re living in a time when technology brings us all closer together. It enables us to easily communicate and share information and knowledge with each other. It also lets us connect with each other in business to exchange goods and services in the real world. When small businesses and individuals can connect with each other directly, everybody has more choices and variety.

More change is coming. Decentralization of our economy is happening. We can imagine a world where people move away from dependence on large corporations, big box stores, mass production and factory farming. We can imagine a world where people build sustainable and biodiverse food systems, and can exchange heirloom and organic varieties of food from their farms or gardens to local buyers. A world where a small inventor can develop and even manufacture things like customized bicycles or appliances using 3D printing technology for groups of people who covet those products, locally or globally.

We can imagine drivers picking up riders on a whim while going from one city to another. They could even transport food and 3D-printed products from one producer to a consumer while they’re at it. Small drones can deliver pizzas or other small packages efficiently to local areas and beyond.

People can offer their homes as lodging, or just home-cooked meals, to both locals and travelers. This is already happening. Good mechanics, handymen, housecleaners, babysitters, masseuses, artists, and entertainers are all easier to connect with now than before, and will be even easier to connect with in the future as online marketplaces mature. We can imagine a society of seamless exchange, with goods and services flowing in harmony between people all over the world.

Peerhub is an online hub that lets you make these exchanges, and it’s designed to become a place where you’ll be able to buy and sell anything. Any service. Any good. Housing. Transportation. Anything you want by just connecting with another peer. In fact, that’s what our entire global economy is all about, isn’t it? We provide and exchange value with each other for the benefit of each other. There’s nothing more to an economy than that, when you really think about it.

We at Peerhub plan to be one of the marketplaces and communities that foster and build this new economy. Come join us and let’s take this journey together.
