The Patagonia iron pan parable

The Patagonia iron pan parable: “The New Economy offers enormous hope because it is a blend of the best thinking and values from the past and the future. One of its central principles is cooperation.(…)  we don’t need to own everything in order to benefit from it; that’s why we invented public parks, public libraries and public schools. After all, we are not a nation of hermits; we form a thousand kinds of families and communities, associations and businesses to do things together. This is smart, sane and efficient.” (Hat tip to Mary Hughes for sharing.)
