  3. 3. © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation. All rights reserved. SR-1563B As instability continues to plague the world economy, both corporate structures and traditional salaried jobs will be impacted. Individuals, communities, and nations alike will be forced to reevaluate the accepted definitions of productivity and value. For those without salaried jobs, time tracking, time management, and the concept of “time is money” will take on new urgency. As newly integrated workers turn to contract and micro- work for their living, timesaving devices will be pervasive. Outside the currency-based world, communities will formalize long-practiced activities of sharing resources and time by developing time-banking systems in order to highlight the value of truly shared economies. This value shift will be reflected in the corporations and employers that remain—with sustainable growth and community outreach rewarded. 3 13 | Economies of Time | Future Innovation © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.

  4. 4. © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation. All rights reserved. SR-1563B The desire to revalue prosperity was very apparent throughout Catalysts for Change game play. Players suggested an abundance of ways in which we can revalue prosperity and resilience by moving away from access to money and toward access to time and human capital. Ideas included time-saving devices, time equity banks, new currency systems based on exchange of services, and skills-bartering systems. 4 13 | Economies of Time | From the Players © 2013 Institute for the Future for Rockefeller Foundation.
