Taking a cut

Posted by Kirsten Gibbs on March 5, 2019
  • Some things we used to do for free, without the need for a middle-person:

    • Talk to each other on the way home from school

    • Eat dinner together

    • Drink water

    • Pay for stuff

    • Enjoy a view of the Thames from the Festival Hall

    • Hail a cab

    • Go on a date

    In some cases a middle-person can add tremendous value – mediating a dispute instead of going to court for example.

    All too often though, that new thing we’re all dying to try is just a mechanism for taking a cut of the value others have created.
