RBE(Resource Based Economy) or an economy without money=Wishful Thinking
Money is not a brake or a drain on the economy. Money is essential to allow
trade to occur in an efficient manner. Money enables the formation of
prices. Prices are information. Without prices, you can't know whether or
not the use to which you wish to put a good is valuable or not. Without
prices, the lumberjack who cuts down a tree doesn't know if it's better for
society to sell that tree to the construction company or to the toothpick
factory. With prices, he can observe which is willing to pay a higher price
and sell accordingly. This ensures efficient allocation of resources,
something the RBE wants to magic away and replace with unicorns and
The RBE is based upon the argument that scarcity is artificial, which is
absolutely, breathtakingly wrong. Consider the very simple concept of
opportunity cost. If you wish to go see a movie, but you also wish to go
hiking in the woods, it is obvious that you can't do both at once. You have
to pick one activity, because your body and your time are scarce. You will
go with whichever activity you think is more valuable to you. If you
understand this simple example, I hope you can also understand how the idea
that economic scarcity is some kind of myth is ridiculous.
The RBE is attractive largely because of people's ignorance of economics.
It's like asking someone of a primitive society who is ignorant about
gravity to explain why a rock falls when dropped from his hand. He's likely
to shrug his shoulders and say, "the gods make it so," or "the rock wishes
to return to the embrace of mother Earth." When you abandon logical
deduction in favor of wild and unfounded propositions, this is the garbage

This movie makes me SICK.
Sick because it speaks the truth, and that truth is horrifying.
I wish I could rationally deny the content of this video but I cannot.
This video has made me paranoid, scared, and worried about our future.
These are unpleasant emotions, but they are also powerful.
And with these unpleasant powerful emotions is a very raw truth.
Peter Joseph and all the other contributors to this move, Thank You for
making these ideas publicly available and widespread!!

I don't even ask much out of life. All I want is 2 chicks tonguing my ass
while 2 are tonguing my balls with a 15 car garage and enough land for a
par 90 golf course to look at from my kitchen window. I don't need a lot of

On the graphs that they show around 1:20:00, Germany is always much better
than the US. That makes me feel good that my home country is better than
the US. I have always known that but its good to see them in the video.
Btw, Spider58x: you can have an economy base on resources. However, the
your argument is still based on the acquisition of unneeded material
things. That alone is very flawed. I honestly cant decide if you actually
believe your statement or just trolling this video.

But one thing i don't understand , communism was just like zeitgeist
movement , jobs for everybody , food for everybody , houses for everybody ,
no crimes , peaceful life , man is more important than property , family is
most important , people were happy , crimminals were working for state not
state for criminals.
Is this Zeitgeist movement like communism or if not what is different ?

this is for that moron SPIDER58X. you speak like our life depends on money,
and the economy also with every reply you send is 500 pages long.
i will cut you out short and simple.
if you think that money is more important then the environment, then try
counting $1,000,000. holding your breath, and tell me what number you get
to just before your heart stops, and the severe brain damage you have from
the lack of oxygen to your brain.

+Spider58x Another uneducated idiot who worships capitalism. Seems like
companies and corporations are throwing money to the poor as charity rather
than creating more job opportunities and placements. You know why any other
fucking ism doesn't work,it's because of human greed. I hope he enjoys his
fiat currency made out of Fractional Reserve Banking. Use your fucking mind
and tell me why companies own robots in their factories,it's because it's
cheaper in the long run for THEM. Now he will link this long paragraph to a
crackpot utopianist or a conspiracy theory. Or he will call anybody as a
hippie commie bastard through his small narrow mindset.

can anybody explain this to me; how are you going to get all the resources
in the system without stealing everything from everybody first?
