This Peer-to-Peer economy that is rising up to replace the Industrial/Information economy is difficult to see in its totality, but is everywhere around us.
...now that this is becoming the fashionable new mini-stimulus for countries suffering in the doldrums of this deflationary cycle, it isn't quite so surprising as it once was. It's now almost predictable.
...what is at stake with every royal succession is not just the domestic politics of Saudi Arabia, but the course of geopolitics and, ultimately, the global economy.
