Although I think it's not the most beautifully written or even that free from flaws or slightly frustrating things, it still, in essence, represents one of the most inspiring and thought-provoking concepts I have ever come across. The vision of the Venus Project has been fundamental to the work in my life.
Please read this book, watch videos of Jacque Fresco on YouTube and learn as much as you can about the Resource Based Economy concept. Then don't stop there. This is just the beginning of a journey!
Perhaps you will then like to venture into these: hifreedom.org and auravana.com
Although somewhat repetitive the message of the planets future cannot be ignored and should be considered by all.

Jacque Fresco calls this system resource-based economy (RBE), because it is based on optimizing resource usage. A resource can be energy, minerals, fibres, plants, land area, time, and so on. The optimization process is multi-dimensional and completely based on consumer demands and resource availability. There is no need to employ the one-dimensional valuation system we call money. In this way the carrying capacity of Earth is maintained for the longest possible time.
Gene Roddenberry may have had something like this in mind when he conceived Star Trek. Trekkies will remember the episode in TNG where Picard explains how the economy of the Federation works - Jacque Fresco does this for people of today.
The ideas of The Venus Project are presented completely and with many instructive color images. A glossary and pointers to further free media are provided in the appendix.
