See this link which discussed the book by Kojin Karatani. Excerpts with commentary:
“There are four types of mode of exchange:
- mode A, which consists
of the reciprocity of the gift ;
- mode B, which consists of ruling and protection;
- mode C, which consists of commodity exchange; and
- mode D, which transcends the other three.
Mode of exchange D is not simply the restoration of mode A — it is not, that is, the restoration of community. Mode of exchange D, as the restoration of A in a higher dimension, is in fact only possible with the negation of A.”
It is a return of communal shareholding via the new ‘nomadic’ structure, i.e., via the internet we share and distribute resources in a world community, not just with our local tribe. It’s much like Rifkin describes the collaborative commons new iteration.
