Show Notes
Janelle Orsi (www.theselc.org) discusses the role her important NGO plays in developing the legal tools for the evolving sharing economy, from cooperatives to urban agriculture. We also discuss the need for the sharing of the platform rents entrepreneurs such as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) have enjoyed. This builds on past shows trying to brainstorm a suitable economic formula for sharing the rents between participants and the producers of such platforms.

Show Notes
PhD candidate Cameron Murray joins for a lively discussion on the links between corruption and property rights in Queensland, venturing into ICAC and onto the global property bubble

All Property is Theft? A clarification – it is the unearned income, the economic rent that is the real theft. Property rights are essential for security of tenure but it is the loss of this community created value, the rents the community must address.
