Greetings from my dive bar on the Google campus, where dozens of people are loudly watching a football game while I sit here – – the only one with a laptop – – nerding away. Yes, I like being different.
This is as much a comment cleaner as anything else, but I wanted to share a few words about something that’s been popping up in my social media feeds a lot lately – – The Venus Project, which is promoting what it calls “The Resource Economy”, as follows:
In a Resource Based Economy all goods and services are available to all people without the need for means of exchange such as money, credits, barter or any other means. For this to be achieved all resources must be declared as the common heritage of all Earth’s inhabitants. Equipped with the latest scientific and technological marvels mankind could reach extremely high productivity levels and create abundance of resources.
