The Venus Project: Resource Based Economy is a short documentary talking about the future design for human civilization. This kind of system makes use of available resources, instead of money, to deliver a fair process of circulation on the most humane and productive way. This is a new system through which all services and goods are accessible to every person without using any monetary transaction such as cash, credit card or other form of payment.
Under a resource-based economy, natural resources are allocated determined by availability, depending on consumer demand, the status of sustainability as well as scientific development. The purpose of money will become obsolete. As an alternative, major computer systems provide a selection of goods and services, where residents may get upon request. Main computers deliver the array of products depending on sustainability as well as the most recent in scientific innovation. Any outdated, undesirable and unused products will be recycled, minimized and even reprocessed.
As stated by Jacque Fresco, corruptions, that lead to poverty, that lead to more crimes and eventually war are the outcome of scarcity made by the current planet’s profit-centered economic system. The monetary system as well as the functions connected with it, including work and rivalry, destroys society which holds back the advancement of technology-driven economy. The Venus Project will decrease the human inclination on individualism, greed and corruption, and alternatively depend upon people supporting one another. Jacque Fresco’s idea of the future can transform our current society to a world where humanity would live happier, longer, better health, and significantly more meaningful lives.
