Singing in the bath

Seth Godin is struggling with economics. He is among friends. Economists are too.

Why is it that people do things because they like doing it without gain.

Well, that is not what is happening. What is happening is that people like to add value.

Blogging, like singing in the bath, offer us an opportunity to add to the range of memories we can use in our daily lives. Some of these activities add values to our cultures and the communities within these cultures.

Some of these values, like money, can be used by economists to play with. Other values like singing, can lift the spirits and can be used by people who need a lift. Blogs can offer significant reach for valuable ideas and values.

This is not a hobby economy we are talking about, it is about our culture and that is what the social economy is all about.
