The Real Economy Lab
Tribes of the New Economy
The Real Economy Lab provides an interactive platform where the cumulative knowledge, aims, and resources of the new economy movement can be drawn together in order to seek common ground and drive coordinated action. It explores the links between people, organizations, issues, ideas and their surrounding contexts in the growing new economic movement. It also orients and mobilizes towards common values, objectives, and mutual understanding. And it catalyzes by creating the conditions for collective awareness and collaborative action.
Using a comprehensive survey, qualitative research and a participative modeling process, The New Real Economy Lab locates actors within a basic narrative framework to reveal patterns and possibilities. Through mapping various issues, topics, intentions and activities within the ecosystem, they identify unifying themes or principles observed at the intersection of leading models for economic change. The Network provides a systemic view of the relationships, commonalities, focus areas, and gaps or opportunities within this landscape, surfacing clusters and patterns.
