The Maker Economy

New forms of bottom-up social networking and economic coordination, along with advances in small-scale, community-based fabrication and design, transform local economies in the next decade, enabling productive flexibility that will help cushion against economic instability.

Schools, community centers, and local businesses will become important hubs of design knowledge, rapid prototyping, and problem-solving skills that will increase local interdependencies and resilience, redefining relationships with the broader economy.
