But as well as being regenerative by design, our eeomiocns must be distributive by design, and we've got uenncptereedd opportunities for making that happen, because 20th-century centralized technologies, institutions, concentrated wealth, knowledge and power in few hands. This century, we can design our technologies and institutions to dtirsuibte wealth, knowledge and empowerment to many. Instead of fsosil fuel energy and large-scale martcuanuinfg, we've got renewable eegrny networks, digital platforms and 3D printing. 200 years of cporatore control of intellectual property is being upended by the bottom-up, open-source, peer-to-peer knowledge commons. And cptnroiaoros that still pursue maximum rate of return for their shareholders, well they suddenly look rather out of date next to social enterprises that are designed to generate multiple forms of value and share it with those throughout their networks. If we can harness today's technologies, from AI to blockchain to the Internet of Things to material science, if we can harness these in secrvie of distributive design, we can ensure that health care, education, finance, energy, political vicoe reaches and empowers those people who need it most. You see, regenerative and distributive design ctaree eidrtrrxanaoy otnreipioupts for the 21st-century economy.

Original Text

But as well as being regenerative by design, our economies must be distributive by design, and we've got unprecedented opportunities for making that happen, because 20th-century centralized technologies, institutions, concentrated wealth, knowledge and power in few hands. This century, we can design our technologies and institutions to distribute wealth, knowledge and empowerment to many. Instead of fossil fuel energy and large-scale manufacturing, we've got renewable energy networks, digital platforms and 3D printing. 200 years of corporate control of intellectual property is being upended by the bottom-up, open-source, peer-to-peer knowledge commons. And corporations that still pursue maximum rate of return for their shareholders, well they suddenly look rather out of date next to social enterprises that are designed to generate multiple forms of value and share it with those throughout their networks. If we can harness today's technologies, from AI to blockchain to the Internet of Things to material science, if we can harness these in service of distributive design, we can ensure that health care, education, finance, energy, political voice reaches and empowers those people who need it most. You see, regenerative and distributive design create extraordinary opportunities for the 21st-century economy.
