This is an absolute modern classic.

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

HASH(0x8da6d54c) out of 5 stars Real progress towards the American Dream 7 Sept. 2012
By Amazon-Kunde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Yes, it is doable now. Jacque Fresco shows scientifically founded solutions to our current problems. He identifies automation and the scientific method as THE human inventions that can lead us beyond greed and scarcity into a more peaceful world of abundance for everyone where we can make real progress as humans in health, science, ecology, and in the economic system.
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.

HASH(0x8da6d5a0) out of 5 stars A book that anyone who wants to see and contribute to a sustainably peaceful and prosperous world must read 21 Feb. 2013
By Solomon Gashaw Tadese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is not a book that you merely leave it on your bookshelf after reading, but that indeed makes you (more) aware of the unacceptable defects of the current scarcity-based/guided monetary system and gives you an alternative workable system of new civilization that you happily want to be part of and contribute to its realization. Jacque's blueprint is a civilization of abundance that is always evolving, based on the carrying capacity of the earth and the optimal utilization of scientific methods (and technologies) for the increasing maximization of human welfare [for all]. In this civilization, decisions are not made based on mere opinions, but arrived at through a holistic scientific approach of experimentation, i.e. in a way that enable us understand the symbiotic relationship between humans, technologies and the environment. With the at most application of automation for abundant production, we all as individuals of a highly interdependent global society will be free from the chains of monotonous/repetitive jobs and cultivate our potential for the continual betterment of human life. Currently living in a primitively competitive environment of scarcity and under the resultant threats of war, hunger, poverty and environmental destruction with the inappropriate use of technology; we don't have the audacity to refuse this doable resource-based new civilization,but to equally benefit by embracing it. That is what you will understand from this book and why I highly recommend you all to read it - The Best That Money Can't Buy: Beyond Politics, Poverty and War.

HASH(0x8e0b3a08) out of 5 stars Something everyone should read 30 Sept. 2012
By Harry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While concerned of the state of our current monetary system, which obviously hasn't been able to end wars, poverty and many other problems, I strongly recommend this book to everyone who is at least a little bit concerned about the current state of this planet. Fresco has some really nice and viable ideas on how to change the world as we know it. Although some of them might seem really weird and impossible to adapt, I'm sure they'll sound a lot more possible after we agree on the fact that all of us depend on the same resources.

HASH(0x8decb9f0) out of 5 stars Enlightening!!! 1 Feb. 2013
By R. Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found some of the ideas to be along the same thoughts and feelings that I've had for awhile. Also opened my mind to some ideas I hadn't really focused on before. The concepts and themes reminded me of something that was mentioned in one of my favourite shows.. in that technology should be able to feed and clothe everyone and yet we live in squalor. We continue to kill each other in wars over tribal God images and yet, when we - the human race - prove ourselves worthy of survival.
