It describes a phenomenon of production of generally informal goods without drawing on the standard market structures. “Peer Production” is a term coined by Yochai Benkler. It describes collaborative work.

Commons-based peer production describes the collaborative production of products, usually without financial compensation, that is shared by the community. For example a buffet with individual food and beverage contributions. The Internet has revolutionized this form of contribution. One example is “Wikipedia.” However, what creates the incentive is disputed.
