BILLIONS IN CHANGE - FREE ELECTRIC ENERGY

Not forgetting Trevor Baylis, the inventor of the wind-up radio who enabled people in developing countries to access public health information about HIV (1). His idea works on the same principle as the electric bike i.e., it transfers human energy potential to the production of electricity. His idea has been applied to wind-up laptops, torches and a host of other items (Google).

In terms of social investment, the human potential to generate one's own electric supports what Margaret Whitehead and Göran Dahlgren suggest in addressing social inequalities by leveling up, not leveling down (2), which can be applied to employment and production for bringing people up from out of poverty rather than using the economics of austerity to reboot capitalism and hold people down.

Is a good idea - but ends up paying for the electrical energy?
