Beyond the green economy is the new economy, which I believe will be "people powered" and leverage the excess capacity that we find all around us.

I'd put Google, Flickr, Wikipedia, and eBay into this category of companies that leverage individual's excess capacity. Other examples include Fon, Etsy, Waze, Couchsurfing, AirBnb, and Buzzcar.

Instead of waiting for government, or big business to create the world we want to live in, increasingly we will take charge of our lives and environment and build the future ourselves.
