What is Share the Pear?
Share the Pear is a local, token assisted, barter system which is being trialled in Boden Park, a suburban housing estate with approximately 200 homes, in Rathfarnham, Dublin.
It has the following purposes...
- To assist Boden Park become a more thriving, dynamic community
- To help residents of Boden Park make new friends and acquaintances
- To accumulate credit through contributing to the community
- To help people get many of those awkward jobs done free of charge
- To assist people develop hidden talents
- To support teenagers and young people gain work experience
- To assist retired people contribute to the community
- To create many new opportunities for the people of Boden Park to live abundantly
- To assist some people find a new purpose and direction for their life
How does it work?
The economic system is centred around an online trading platform. Local people who live in Boden Park apply to have services they would like to offer promoted on the platform. Examples of such services would be dog walking, gardening, social engagement services such as mother and baby Meetups, etc.
When people join the platform they have 🍐400 (Pears) lodged to their account. Local barter takes place with the assistance of these tokens, which are added and subtracted from each account as each participant in the service buys another participant’s service or sells their own service. For the simplicity of trading, 🍐1 = €1
10% of all traded services is lodged to a Share the Pear account. These excess tokens are used to pay for the running of the service, using the skills present in the local community.
Share the Pear addresses one of the main disadvantages of the capitalist system - the exploitation of the mass of humanity in varying degrees, through inhuman work practices.
These are some of the ways the current capitalist system does not cater for the needs of individual people....
- People not encouraged to discover what work truly brings them joy.
- People having working lives dominated by the clock and by obeying orders from a dominant hierarchical management structure.
- People in many organisations are not encouraged to use their initiative or creativity.
- There is a high cost of entry alongside high risk, in order to have the freedom of being self employed.
Share the Pear addresses each of these needs by...
Having everyone providing a service where participants are free to work:
- when they want
- how they want
- where they want
- at what they want
- for whatever fee they want
Share the Pear is not conceived as an alternative, but rather as a much simpler complimentary service that’s supports mainstream capitalism, because it supplies many of the small scale services not easily catered for. In so doing it acts as a seed bed for many new initiatives that can cultivate successful enterprise at a small scale - enterprises that can grow to be part of mainstream capitalism, thereby making the main economic system stronger.
Training options that support participants
To support people in Share the Pear make the transition to new work experiences and greater social engagement, Share the Pear offers a facilitator-assisted, online training programme of 29 interactive video workshops. In this online training participants can select one or more workshops and be trained in how to master the challenges they are facing as they up-skill to a Share the Pear participant. This applies whether they are in are in a leadership or participant role. Wallace and Peter are also making available all the other resources of their Spiritual Path to assist participants in Share the Pear up-skill so they can become valuable Share the Pear contributors. See The Spiritual Path.
In conclusion Share the Pear serves to...
- Fill some of the gaps in service provision left by mainstream capitalism
- Provide valuable work experience for young and old alike
- Greatly improve social engagement and cohesion within a small community
Once Share the Pear has been successful as a prototype it will be packaged up and offered, along with training, to make it easy for other small communities in Ireland, and eventually overseas, to empower Share the Pear and bring the same benefits to their neighbourhood.
