Felix Weth

Platform cooperativism

Meaning 2016

We live in an age of platform capitalism. The term ‘sharing’ has been hijacked by online monopolies like Amazon, Uber and Airbnb, who dictate the terms of business to those who supply services or products. At Meaning, Paul Mason introduces us to Felix Weth and Fairmondo – an organisation which proves that true collaboration is possible. Fairmondo is a platform co-op: a connected marketplace where the technology, power and profit lie in the hands of its users.
