What is a resource based economy? Interview with Jacque Fresco by Larry King.

To better understand the meaning of a Resource-Based Economy, consider this: if
all the money in the world were destroyed, as long as topsoil, factories and other
resources were left intact, we could build anything we choose to build and fulfill
any human need. It is not money that people need; rather, it is free access to the
necessities of life. In a Resource-Based Economy, money would be irrelevant. All
that would be required are the resources and the manufacturing and distribution
of the products.

NEW CITY SYSTEMS
Smart sustainable designs that work with nature 
 
 The Venus Project is an organization thatproposes a feasible plan of action for socialchange, one that works towards a peacefuland sustainable global civilization. Itoutlines an alternative to strive towards,where human rights are no longer paperproclamations but a way of life. The VenusProject advocates an alternative vision for asustainable new world civilization unlikeany socio-economic system that has gone before, known as a Resource-BasedEconomy. Founded by Jacque Fresco –Industrial Designer, Social Engineer,Futurist, Inventor, and commonly referredto as a modern day DaVinci, Frescodemonstrates what the future can be if weapply our science and technology to thebenefit of humankind and the planet andnot the profits of individuals, corporationsor even nations. 
 
To better understand the meaning of a Resource-Based Economy, consider this: iall the money in the world were destroyed, as long as topsoil, factories and otheresources were left intact, we could build anything we choose to build and fulfillany human need. It is not money that people need; rather, it is free access to thenecessities of life. In a Resource-Based Economy, money would be irrelevant. Althat would be required are the resources and the manufacturing and distributionof the products. When education and resources are made available to all people without a pricetag, there would be no limit to the human potential. Although this is difficult toimagine, even the wealthiest person today would be far better off in a Resource-Based Society, as proposed by The Venus Project. Today, the middle classes livebetter than kings of times past. In a Resource-Based Economy everyone wouldlive better than the wealthiest of today. In a Resource-Based Society, the measure of success would be based on thefulfillment of one’s individual pursuits rather than the acquisition of wealth,property and power.
A Resource-Based Economy
All socio-economic systems, regardless of political philosophy, religious beliefsor social customs, ultimately depend upon natural resources i.e. clean air andwater, arable land and the necessary technology and personnel to maintain ahigh standard of living. Simply stated, a Resource-Based Economy utilizesexisting resources rather than money and provides an equitable method of distributing these resources, in the most efficient manner for the entirepopulation. It is a system in which all goods and services are available without thuse of money, credits, barter or any other form of debt or servitude. Earth is abundant with plentiful resources; today our practice of rationingresources through monetary methods is irrelevant and counter-productive to oursurvival. Modern society has access to highly advanced technologies and canmake available food, clothing, housing, medical care, a relevant educationalsystem and develop a limitless supply of renewable, non-contaminating energysuch as geothermal, solar, wind and tidal etc. It is now possible to have everyoneenjoy a very high standard of living with all of the amenities that a prosperous civilization can provide. This can be accomplished through the intelligent andhumane application of science and technology.
