Capitalism 2.0 is currently looking for blog authors. We're looking for folks with interesting things to write in line with the central theme of this blog: Capitalism, version 2.0. What that really means is sort of up to you to describe, and for others to read. Above all else, we believe that direct publishing of mature, intellectually grounded information is rapidly becoming a fundamental force shaping our modern society, and ultimately changing the economic landscape.
General themes which tend to come up are economics, social implications of economic policy, financial markets, the role of technology, and geopolitics. But things aren't always heavy and dry. We like to ground our lofty ideas and heady analyses in stories about stuff we observe in the real world.
This is no academic journal, there are plenty of those already. Nor is this a ranting political soap box, there are even more of those. This is a place for mature, intellectual adults to converse about stuff that matters.
Topics in the past have ranged from:
- Grass roots analysis of the largest real estate asset bubble in US history, particularly in light of the stunning silence and denial that a bubble or any problems at all existed.
- Analysis of the wildly popular virtual world Second Life and the associated, almost entirely unverified and consequently largely false media hype.
- Discussions about the falling US dollar and rising metals prices, and how that was causing everyday US coins to become worth more than their face value.
- Hypothetical discussions about advanced networks modeling group behaviors during bubbles and crashes.
- Explorations of how online computer games could be used by terrorists and organized criminals to launder money.
- Why quarterly earnings estimates should be eliminated and why financial analysts are all but useless.
...but there's more! That's where you come in. Write about anything you want, so long as it's mature, informed, intellectual, and relevant. How and why it is relevant, is really up to you...
