Welcome to Charterless.

I believe that we are at the beginning of a revolution in the ways we organize our economy, our leisure and our communities. My newsletter is my “Notes from the Front” where I chronicle organizations, ideas and communities that are shaping the future of human cooperation. I also try to contextualize these ideas using my favorite frames — history and economic history. There will inevitably also be Taylor Swift references.

This is my project to connect with and learn from the communities that are experimenting with shaking up the world order. I write it for fun and to have a reason to talk to people I admire. I hope you enjoy it.
