In Israel there are rest camps for the nation's youth called Kibbutzim, which provide support and a definite meal the next day for it's participants, who all work and contribute together to pool in the money to care for eachother. Alot of these camps are in cheaper areas and usually sustain themselves financially by opening themselves to outsiders as hotels or sending members out to do day labor jobs in rotation. The benefit to these camps is that they open up alot of free time for people. Now applying this concept of a Kibbutz to innovators who need time and a guaranteed meal the next day, and what you get is people under a much less stressful context sitting back and thinking about what their next steps are in making their ideas realities.The concept of bringing forward a very powerful idea once a person has an open amount of time to do it has been successful in the past, there are many stories of people sometimes even coming out of jail with published books because inside they finally had time to sit back and think, or children of millionaires being much more successful in their pursuits because of a given freedom from the stresses of survival.
To make the concept clearer I suggest we create resting grounds for people not only in jail but for the public, they would involve rotations of taking on duties for maintaining the grounds as well as provide the elementary needs for survival, and would free up time for it's participants.
The main idea here being to provide people with the freedom to think, by providing them with time and removing distractions. If further it becomes encouraged that participants also take the freedom to choose projects that they themselves are extremely interested I am sure that this would also improve productivity.
(PS.I would love to write about all of the arguments to back up the concept of improved productivity due to a new found freedom within employees, however I feel that this article would get too long, and that it would distract from what the suggestion is.)
