Activist Jeremy Heimans explores how the use of crowd-funding in economy can easily be applied to politics to revolutionize governmental systems of power. Heimans refers to this distributed form of leadership as "new power" that could radically shift how nations run their leadership.
Heimans defines this concept of "new power" as "...the deployment of mass participation and peer coordination to create change and shift outcomes." Companies such as Airbnb and Kickstarter are great examples of this as they've both created a peer-driven company model sustained by many and with an open concept design. Applying this new structure of power to government will ensure a greater number of participation from all peers and new values -- such as transparency, speed, collaboration and networked governance.
