THE VENUS PROJECT - A Resource Based Economy
THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY
Beyond Politics, Poverty and War
Jacque Fresco - Futurist, Inventor, Industrial Engineer
In the Introduction of Jacque Fresco's book titled: "THE BEST THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY" Beyond Politics, Poverty and War; he said the following:
"Few technological achievements are as impressive as the ability to see our own planet from outer space. The beautiful sphere suspended against the black void of space makes plain the bond that the billions of us on earth have in common. This view from outer space awakens the grand realization that all who share our planet make up a single community. No national borders exist. This global consciousness inspires space travelers to provide emotional and spiritual observations. They believe this viewpoint will help unite the nations of the world in order to build a peaceful future for the present generations and the ones that follow".
What is the Venus Project?
The Venus Project is a socio-economic system featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a RESOURCE BASED ECONOMY. Jacque Fresco's commitment to developing a "global model" which represents a holistic approach to benefit all human civilization, started more than seventy-five years ago, and concludes that the earth is abundant with plenty of natural resources, clean air and water and arable land and the necessary technology and personnel to secure and maintain a high standard of living for all humanity. The Venus Project is designed to surpass the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business and any other "establishment" notion of human affairs. This alternative supersedes the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environments, which we are faced with today.
