GREEN ECONOMICS AND NETWORKS

According to George Soros theories about the logic of Boom-bust of economic bubbles, we couldn’t avoid to recognise in this kind of Strange collaboration of capitalized platforms of e-commerce and Chinese consumers the same “borderline area between order and disorder” of a economic bubble in the phase of his development, when it is far from the equilibrium, is growing incorporating false perceptions and influences over the market fundamentals.

Two enemies (capital and consumers) in a reciprocal attempt to be humble?

Whoever can imagine what could come from such socio-political strange cooperation?

A response to global crisis?

A coordination between order and disorder?

A disastrous bust of actual capitalistic views, which gave rise to global crisis?
