Resource Based Economy
Jacque Fresco on Larry King (1974)
The Project Humanity & Earth Organization is currently one of the only projects in the world that provides a Logical, Peaceful, Feasible and Low Cost way for Humanity to Start a Transition into a Resource Based Economy! For over 20 years P.H.E. has had a cause & project for a Peaceful RBE Transition!
The Founder of P.H.E. learned about RBE, TVP, Jacque Fresco & Roxanne Meadows a few years after he started the P.H.E. organization. Realizing Jacque & a RBE could greatly benefit from the P.H.E. Cause & Project which is provide Free Education and Resources to the whole world through its Community Centers!
The P.H.E. Cause is a worldwide community center project which is perfect for a Transition to a Resource Based Economy! P.H.E. has been a Support Organization for a RBE & TVP for over 20 years!!
We hope everyone will realize how important the P.H.E. Community Center Project and The Venus Project Center for Resource Management is for Humanity, for Our Earth, and for a Resource Based Economy!
Enjoy this page, it will help you learn what a RBE is all about!
For a Peaceful RBE Transition Please Help Support P.H.E & T.V.P.!
"People say the monetary system produces incentive & motivation but it also produces greed, embezzlement, classism, politics, corruption, pollution, jealousy, anger, crime,
war, poverty, tremendous scarcity, and unnecessary human suffering...
You have to look at the whole picture and the root cause of all the issues."
- Our Future
R.B.E. proposes a logical and feasible plan of action for economic and social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer just on paper but a way of life.
Experience tells us that human behavior can be modified, either toward constructive or destructive activity. This is what a Resource Based Economy is all about by directing our technology and resources towards the positive, for the maximum benefit of all the people and the planet. Seeking out new ways of thinking and living that emphasize and celebrate the vast potential of the human experience. We have the tools & technology at hand to design and build a peaceful global future that will benefit all of Humanity & Our Planet.
R.B.E. presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture. The responsibility for our future is in our hands, and depends on the decisions that we make today. The greatest resource that is available today is our own ingenuity.
A Resource Based Economy is an alternative vision for a sustainable new civilization unlike any social system that has gone before. P.H.E. advocates the transition from a monetary based society to the eventual realization of a Resource Based Economy. We realize to make the transition from our present culture, which is politically incompetent, scarcity-oriented and obsolete, to this new, more humane society will require a quantum leap in both thought and actions.
We now have the means to produce goods and services in abundance for everyone at no cost. Unfortunately, today science and technology have been diverted from achieving the greatest good for reasons of self-interest and monetary gain through planned obsolescence sometimes referred to as the conscious withdrawal of efficiency.
Resource Based Economy:
All social systems, regardless of political philosophy, religious beliefs, or social customs, ultimately depend upon natural resources, i.e. clean air and water, arable land and the necessary technology and personnel to maintain a high standard of living.
Simply stated, a 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 Earth's 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.
Earth is abundant with plentiful resources; today our practice of rationing resources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter productive to our survival. Modern society has access to highly advanced technologies and can make available food, clothing, housing, medical care, a relevant educational system, and develop a limitless supply of renewable, non-contaminating energy such as geothermal, solar, wind, tidal, etc.
It is now possible to have every human being on Earth to enjoy a very high standard of living with all of the amenities that a prosperous civilization can provide. This can be accomplished through the intelligent and humane application of science and technology.
To better understand the meaning of a Resource Based Economy consider this: if all the money in the world were destroyed, as long as topsoil, factories, and other resources were left intact, we could build anything we choose to build and fulfill any human need. 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 for Free to All of Humanity.
When education and resources are made available to all people without a price tag, there would be no limit to the human potential. Although this is difficult to imagine, even the wealthiest person today would be far better off in a Resource Based Economy.
Today the middle classes live better than kings of times past. In a R.B.E. everyone would live better than the wealthiest of today. In such a society, the measure of success would be based on the fulfillment of one's individual pursuits rather than the acquisition of wealth, property and power.
The Choice Is Ours To Make:
Human Behavior is subject to the same laws as any other natural phenomenon. Our customs, behaviors, and values are byproducts of our culture. No Human Being is Born with Greed, Prejudice, Bigotry, Patriotism and Hatred;
These are All Learned Behavior Patterns. If the environment is unaltered, similar behavior will reoccur.
Today, much of the technology needed to bring about a Resource Based Economy Exists.
If we choose to conform to the limitations of our present monetary based economy, then it is likely that we will continue to live with its inevitable results: war, poverty, hunger, deprivation, crime, ignorance, stress, fear, and inequity. On the other hand, if we embrace the concept of a Resource Based Economy, learn more about it, and share our understanding with our friends & family, this will help humanity evolve out of its present state.
