Here is my post:
Human Nature, Competition, Employment, and Housing within a Resource Based Economy
Here is an excerpt from the introduction:
Pursuant to a Facebook conversation I popped into, I am writing this post to help to answer some questions asked about a Resource Based Economy ( RBE ) . If you do not know what a Resource Based Economy is or why we need to transition to one, then check out my post: The Cancer of Capitalism and Its Antidote where I talk about this and provide a research path for you to learn more.
To start answering the questions posed in that Facebook thread you WILL want to read my two other Resource Based Economy posts once you have an idea as to what a RBE is:
- Productivity and Motivation in a Resource Based Economy? which actually answers quite a bit of this issue of motivation within a Resource Based Economy.
- You will also want to read my post which talks about How will a Resource Based Economy work? What will it look like? which also tackles some of these answers too.
Consider these 3 posts as required reading, because the info and ideas there will form the framework or even form the full answers for part of the questions asked. Because answering anything about a Resource Based Economy is never a straight line, this post will be rather long and will cross through various disciplines from psychology, economics, morality, and religion so buckle in for the interdisciplinary ride to talk about competition and human nature within the framework of a Resource Based Economy.
