Honorato C. Teissier-Fuentes

Abstract


The monetary concentration due to global financial-economic system finally conducts to increase the monetary inequity and unsustainable communities (Gini Index, OCDE).
Mutually Binding Economy Networks pretends to close the distance between producer and consumer, generally poor communities and rich people all over the world, by supplying social mechanisms usually for products distribution; solidarity, equity commerce, responsible consumption, loyal economy, etc. In the most of cases these communities works in an empirical level of the collective intelligence. The exchange results obtained by primitive communities were competitive with Nature, even with others communities in such primitive world. In front of today global economy, the communities constructed by old empirical models are going to be dead in a few years if they do not include the knowledge in their networking ways.
This article describes how in small communities, a knowledge based network improved by systemic methodologies and models, could allows best results in a short term for the community dynamics, favoring the emergence of a long term perspective in a sustainable development. In addition, some results in real cases in these communities and networks, in the northeast of Mexico are shown.
