Senators Introduce a Bi-Partisan Crowdfunding Bill

This afternoon U.S. Senators Brown (R–MA), Merkley (D–OR), and Bennet (D–CO) introduced the bi-partisan Crowdfund Act (S. 2190), legislation that would lift much of the regulations restricting the crowdfunding of small businesses and entrepreneurs. Start-ups could solicit up to $1 million per year from individual investors, though they would have to use SEC-accredited platforms to do so. Investors with annual incomes less than $100,000 could invest up to $2,000, or 5 percent of their income. Wealthier individuals would have considerably more freedom; they could invest up to 10 percent of their income, with a cap at $100,000.

Crowdsourcing: The New Comparative Advantage?

In a world changing so quickly, new models for work will and must emerge. Growing labor forces in India and China, democratic expansions that allows more individual choice, lower friction in work moving across the globe in milliseconds instead of months, and more interconnected people and problems -- all drive the need for more than just subtle shifts in collaboration and creation. The cutting edge -- where technology like "the cloud" and virtual goods themselves are invented, constructed, and consumed -- must be a leader in this change.
