I wanted to create a thread that discusses the ideas of The Venus Program. Namely, a resource-based economy. Anyone who has seen the Zeitgeist films should know what I'm talking about.
In short, a resource-based economy is a social system that has all of human labor replaced by machines and computers. They would all be powered by renewable, non-polluting sources. Because of the lack of work and abundance of supply, people would not able to purchase the things they need, but instead, they would be able to receive whatever they want, when they want.
What do you think?
Is a resource based economy possible?
Is it truly inevitable or will society be lead into another direction?
