There is a persistent myth that a “financial deficit” is looming to destroy all that fall in it’s wrath. The only deficit is the inability for Money – as we know it – to articulate the value that is created in and by communities.
Social Flights is a new venture that combines cutting edge social technology with the universal truth that collaborative consumption of even the most complex system increases the efficiency of that system.
Social Value as a financial instrument
Social Flights attempts to demonstrate the inevitable – social value can and will be convertible to financial value. Social value can and will enter the balance sheet. Social Value will not only impact the bottom line – it will become the bottom line.
The Invisible Hand of Social Capitalism
Social media is emerging as a dominant force behind economics, global politics, innovation, and community organization. Meanwhile; it is the art and science of finance that has failed to keep pace with technology. Social Flights introduces a new class of business methods that can close this gap.
Social Flights sorts people and airplanes with data, not financial infrastructure. The Value Game provides incentives for communities to organize themselves around travel and transportation assets. So instead of forest-to-dump consumerism, a shared asset is preserved by a community for the greatest service life possible. Social Flights demonstrates this with an airplane; however, a hotel, car, tour package, or a trade show/convention are quickly pulled into their own value game cycle given the airplane game playing out in proximity to them. In fact all “assets” – social, intellectual, creative, or financial – can be pulled into their own value games in response to those acting around them.
Travel: An Ideal Benchmark Industry
We are starting with travel. Specifically, air transportation because of it’s complexity, high profile, and significance to most people and industries. Furthermore, corporate jets are beautiful, awe inspiring, controversial, and conjure the image of power and grace. Most importantly, travel is pivotal enterprise and the best system for the diverse high-value transfer of new ideas to occur.
Nothing economic can happen until people get together to build something
The value of most commercial activity may ultimately become dependent on the quantity and quality of the data emerging from the millions of Value Games playing out in communities across the globe. Any and all shared assets – from public infrastructure to money itself – can be shared collaboratively in hugely profitable Value games.
New to the Public Domain
Nothing like this has ever been put together before so there is certainly much to learn. Many people will fail to recognize where we are going with this. However, the rewards will be high and the implications will be vast if we are successful. There will be an extraordinary amount of knowledge to be share to the public domain.
Collaborative consumption is here to stay because it represents a higher value economy than forest-to-dump consumerism. The financial deficit is simply the inadequacy of Money to articulate Social Value – not the inadequacy of people to be happy, creative, and productive in their communities.
