Economic Calculation in a Natural Law / RBE
by Peter Joseph, The Zeitgeist Movement, Berlin (11/12/2013)
TZM founder Peter Joseph visited Berlin, Germany on November 12, 2013 to deliver a presentation entitled “Economic Calculation in a Natural Law/Resource-Based Economy”.
This advanced presentation answered questions related to the economic feasibility of a “post-scarcity” modeled socioeconomic system, as proposed by The Zeitgeist Movement, delving into exactly how resource management, allocation, sustainability protocols and other critical factors are calculated, along with the nature of social participation.
Standing in stark contrast to the current “proxy” management process known as the price/profit system and the traditional market practice of competing businesses and general exploitation, a Natural Law/Resource-Based Economy follows a train of thought which arrives at an improved mode of economic unfolding which can structurally assure both environmental and cultural sustainability, while alleviating enormous levels of stress both with respect to our personal well-being and with respect to our global ecological footprint as a species.
This new approach is about taking a direct technical orientation to social and economic management as opposed to a monetary or political one, with public health given the most critical importance. It is about updating the workings of society to the most advanced and proven methods science and technology have to offer, leaving behind the damaging consequences and limiting inhibitions which are generated by our current system of monetary exchange.
This event was organized and hosted by the Berlin chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement.
