This paper attempts to analyze, in light of Jeremy Rifkin's arguments about the age of access, the plausibility of John Locke's arguments as models for understanding ownership and exchange in the contemporary world.

From the Paper:

"Over the past decades, capitalism has undergone a revolution. That revolution, spearheaded by unprecedented technological innovation, has engendered an academic effort towards the redefinition of capitalism, and the reformulation of its infrastructural base. As Joyce Rothschild and Raymond Russell (1986) contend, information technology has struck at the very base of capitalism, rendering previously sacrosanct rules governing market relations and interpersonal economic exchanges, not to mention relationships between property and individual, obsolete (308-310). There is probable justification for the stated declaration yet, the authors have taken the issue a couple of steps further than is warranted."
