What I think, What I do

The Venus Project

Venus Project is a new plan of action for social change; one that works toward a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. The Venus Project proposes resource-based economy, in which the planetary resources are held as the common heritage of all the earth’s inhabitants.

Resource Based Economy

Basically, resource-based economy utilizes existing resources rather than money and provides an equitable method of distributing these resources in the most efficient manner for the entire population. It is a system in which all goods and services are available without the use of money, credits, barter, or any other form of debt or servitude.
They say, It is not money that people need; rather, it is free access to the necessities of life. In a resource-based economy , money would be irrelevant. All that would be required are the resources and the manufacturing and distribution of the products.

A resource-based economy would make it possible to use technology to overcome scarce resources by applying renewable sources of energy, computerizing and automating manufacturing and inventory, designing safe energy-efficient cities and advanced transportation systems, providing universal health care and more relevant education, and most of all by generating a new incentive system based on human and environmental concern.

City Systems

The Venus Project proposes a Research City that would use the most sophisticated available resources and construction techniques. This city will be designed to operate with the minimum expenditure of energy using the cleanest technology available, which will be in harmony with nature to obtain the highest possible standard of living for everyone. This system facilitates efficient transportation for city residents, eliminating the need for automobiles.

At first view project looks like modern Jetsons Planet but it is a new social world system study.
