[ RBE : Resource Based Economy ]
A Resource Based Economy, is based on pure logic.
If you go on a Mountain Expedition
you calculate how much food you have,
how many people there are and how long the trip will be.
You then arrive at a decision about the resources you need for the expedition.
If you send a spacecraft to the moon, you will need to analyse the situation
to find out what resources are necessary for your expedition.
You will take into account the food,
the number of people going on this expedition, and the fuel for such a journey.
If you, like a species, want to populate another planet,
first you analyze what resources are available, and how many people such a planet can sustain.
Well, it's the exact same thing with planet Earth,
only that here the monetary system does not take into account the planetary resources.
Luckily for us, there is already a plan to organise our world, it is called The Venus Project.
The Venus Project.
A nation without a vision of what the future can be,
is bound to repeat past errors, over and over again.
This brief video will 'outline' a vision designed
to avoid making the same mistakes.
A vision of efficiency, sustainability,
and intelligent planning. A vision to lead us into a marvelous new world
of unlimited human potential.
This vision could be a showcase of what the world can be,
in our cybernated age.
Science and technology, could be used for human betterment,
and the restoration and protection of the environment,
serving as an example of the intelligent application of a systems approach.
While some people advocate the restoration of existing worn out cities,
this effort falls short of the potential modern technology offers.
Repairing current cities results in higher costs of operation and maintenance.
It is actually less expensive, in the long run, to build newer cities from the ground up,
than to restore and maintain old ones.
A total city system approach
requires overall planning to attain the highest standard of living
for all their city's occupants.
The circular arrangement, efficiently permits the most sophisticated use of available resources,
and construction techniques, with a minimum expenditure of energy.
The most advanced amenities that modern science and technology can provide
could be made available to everyone.
The city could be a help and learning center,
where people from all over the world visit,
and hopefully emulate this design approach in other parts of the world.
Design considerations for this new city include:
it's assembly, the reduction of maintenance, efficient transportation, and its simplicity
and durability. This would include the flexibility to permit on going, and later changes.
The city would function as an evolving, integrated organism,
rather than a static structure.
This system's approach envisions assembling entire cities, by standardised basic structural elements,
which are prefabricated in automated plants, and assembled on site.
Many of these buildings would be comprised of standard units, that can be arranged
to meet many different requirements.
This approach means that this city can be extremely cost efficient,
because only one sector needs to be designed,
which can be duplicated repeatedly for the completion of an entire city.
The outer perimeter would be part of the recreation area,
with golf courses, hiking and
biking trails and opportunities for water sports.
Inside this area, a waterway surrounds an agricultural belt, with indoor and outdoor agriculture.
Continuing into the city center,
eight green sectors provide clean, renewable resources of energy,
using wind, solar, and heat concentrators.
Waste recycling, and other services, are located beneath the city.
The plan utilizes the best of clean technology,
and harmony with the surrounding environment.
The residential district features beautiful landscaping, with lakes and winding streams.
A wide range of creative, innovative apartment buildings and individual, unique homes,
would provide many options for the occupants.
New and innovated methods of vast mass construction for housing and building systems,
would inject composed materials into a mold, and then extrude the form upward.
In some cases, multiple city apartments
can be produced as continuous extrusions,
which are then separated into individual units.
Cranes transport the prefabricated dwellings to site locations,
they are then lifted and inserted into a support structure.
The apartments are lightweight and high strength.
All of these dwellings are designed as self contained residences.
The outer surface of these efficient structures serve as photovoltaic generators,
converting solar radiation directly into electricity for heating,
cooling and other needs.
The thermocouple effect would also be used for generating electricity.
The wide range of individual homes are prefabricated and relatively maintenance free,
fire resistant and impervious to weather.
With this type of construction, there will be little or no damage from floods,
earthquakes or hurricanes.
Their thin shell construction can be mass produced, efficiently and economically.
New energy efficient systems can be installed to supply enough power to operate the entire household.
Adjacent to the residential district, there are planning, science and research centers.
Eight domes, surrounding the central dome house art,
music, exhibition, entertainment and conference centers.
Lovely parks, lakes, streams and waterfalls, are located throughout the entire city.
The central dome (or “theme center”) contains schools, health care, distribution center,
communications networking, and childcare.
It is also the core for most transportation services,
which move people by transveyors, horizontally, vertically and radially anywhere in the city.
This minimizes the need for automobile transportation, except for emergency vehicles.
Transportation between cities would be by 'monorails'.
The central dome would eventually house a cybernated complex, which serves as the brain and nervous system of the entire city.
It projects a 3D, virtual image of Earth,
using satellite communication systems which display information on weather, agriculture, transportation and the operation of the whole city.
This cybernated system would use environmental sensors,
to help maintain a balance load economy,
which avoids surplus and shortages.
For example, in the agricultural belt, electronic probes monitoring and maintain the soil conditions,
water table, nutrients and more.
This method of electronic feedback can be applied to the entire city complex.
With computers now able to process trillions of bits of information per second,
they are vital for arriving at correct decisions for the management of these innovated cities.
Some of these cities may be total enclosure systems, which are self-efficient.
These massive structures would contain residences, parks, recreation, entertainment, health care, educational facilities and more.
Everything built in these cities
would be as near to a self-contained system as conditions allow.
In this total enclosure arrangement, the skyscraper assures that more land is available for parks,
and wilderness preserves, while at the same time, eliminating urban sprawl.
Wherever possible, geothermal energy can be harnessed.
Geothermal power offers the possibility of an abundant source of clean energy.
This source alone can provide enough energy for the next thousand years.
Regional transportation systems would include a network of waterways and canals.
These bodies of water could minimize the threat of floods, and droughts,
by diverting flood-waters to storage basins.
In addition, these canals could supply water for irrigation, fish farms and recreation.
The canals can also be used for desalinization,
using a method of evaporative condensation.
A network of tunnels could facilitate transportation of passengers,
and freight across the Sahara Desert, to all the Earth's regions, free of the effects of sandstorms.
These tunnels would be located thirty, to forty feet below the desert surface,
with ventilators every thousand metres.
Water could be pumped from below the surface of the Sahara, and transported to all the Earth's regions.
In some instances, ships could serve as floating automated plants,
capable of processing raw materials, into finished products while en route to their destinations.
Huge ships and submarines, with many removable and interchangeable compartments,
would carry freight across the oceans.
Rather than separated containers, an entire freight section
can be automatically disengaged at the port.
Bridge designs would be greatly simplified, and bridges can be made corrosion resistant.
They would be prefabricated and transported to the site, by twin hold catamarans.
On some bridges, trains could be suspended beneath traffic lines.
Colonization of the oceans is one of the last frontiers remaining on Earth.
Prodigious oceanic city communities, would evolve as artificial islands,
floating structures, undersea observatories, and more.
These large marine structures are designed to explore the relatively untapped riches of the oceans,
and provide improved mariculture, fresh water production, energy and mining.
This could offset land based shortages.
They could also provide almost unlimited riches in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, fertilizers,
minerals, oil and natural gas. Ocean cities would be resistant to earthquakes,
and greatly relieve land based population pressures.
The population would vary, from several hundred, to many thousand.
Underwater oceanic viewing and research facilities,
provide expansive panoramic observations of the undersea world,
in its natural habitat, without disturbing the ocean environment.
Unsinkable floating sea domes, would attract those who prefer unique offshore or island living.
In the event of inclement weather, they could easily be towed ashore,
mounted, and anchored to elevated support structures.
Mariculture and sea farming systems, are used to cultivate and raise fish, and other forms of marine life,
to help meet nutritional needs.
These marine enclosures are designed as non contaminating integral parts of the ocean environment.
A true world's fair of the future would emphasize the contributions made by all nations
toward advancing humanity.
Although this fair would provide entertainment,
its main function is the deeper understanding of the world we live in,
and the people who inhabit it.
The architectural structures themselves, would be jewels of future possibilities,
with a wide variety of exhibition buildings.
Many of the displays will depict, not what the future will be, but,
what it can be, if we use science and technology with human and environmental concerns.
It could be a vivid future showcase of human potential.
Videos, three-dimensional displays and full size diagrams, will depict the fabulous advantages for all nations,
when working together to preserve the greatest gift we have:
The resources and beauty of our planet.
In a final analysis, we are one people, and share one planet...
Jacque Fresco is the one who arrived at such a solution through careful study of human behaviour
and the technology behind creating a global resource based economy.
The solutions he has presented for more than thirty years
(maglev trains, self erecting buildings, self-sustaining houses)
still haven't been widely adopted
due to the monetary system's constraints.
[Interview with Larry King in 1974]
My guest is an extraordinary Miamian: Dr. Jacque Fresco.
I could go through all the things that Dr. Fresco has done.
He's a social engineer, industrial engineer, designer, inventor,
was a consultant for Rotorcraft Helicopter,
Director of Scientific Research Laboratories, Los Angeles,
designed and copyrighted various items,
ranging from drafting instruments to X-ray units,
has had works published in the Architectural Record,
Popular Mechanics, Saturday Review, and has been a technical
and psychological consultant to the motion picture industry,
member of the Air Force design and development unit at Wright Field,
developed the electrostatic anti-icing systems,
designed prefabricated aluminum houses.
What does it say in your driver's license?
- What is the occupation?
- Industrial Designer ...
Social Engineer.
- Does it bug you that...
people, when they talk about Jacque Fresco in Miami, say that
he's someone who is, "Too far ahead of his time," his thinking is-
"We're not ready for advanced kind of thinking"-
of that type. Does it bug you?
- I imagine every creative person in every field
encounters that sort of problem. No, it doesn't. I can't afford it.
There's too many things that are important.
What do you think of, when you contemplate the future?
For Jacque Fresco, this is what it looks like.
A future where technology is harnessed for all and money has no relevance.
So you think you know what the future will look like?
You people do, but ??? met a very briliant man does, because he is designing it.
A place where there would be no food shortages, no fear of hurricanes and no war.
It's called the Venus Project.
Extraordinary 93-year-old thinker,
he has created a strategy to build a new unified, symbiotic world
in harmony with nature
His project intents to achieve nothing less that the unification of the human race.
That includes the design of new cities, the abolition of money.
A new paradigm for living.
It is called the Venus Project.
He has been labeled as a genius, a prophet, a visionary
and sometimes as an eccentric, and dismissed as an utopian dreamer.
But in the end, no matter what they say he is Jacque Fresco.
The creator and the mind behind the Venus Project.
Among ??? there are several fields of knowledge, that unify the concept of a new future for the human civilization.
Fresco's entire life is perhaps the definition of a second chance,
a new opportunity for social progress in harmony with our planet and technology.
Born on March 3rd 1916 Jacque Fresco has been called many things.
Designer, architect, invertor, author, and futurist.
It's sensibility stand for my ??? first hand experience of the Great Depression.
It detailed understanding of the effects of a scarcity-based economy and the conflicts it produces.
Primarily self taught, Jacque advodcates for a society that pursues science and technology,
as a means of continually ??? educating itself,
believing that such a society neither wants nor needs to be controlled.
Proclaimed a visionary, Jacque offer bold and complete reformation of the world's social constructs to promise a brighter tomorrow,
if we can unite as humans, in its pursue today.
Jacque Fresco represents not only the sincere ??? belief of artists and designers to effect positive change in a society,
but appear conviction if not responsibility to absolve failing systems.
In a 1974 interview with Larry King, Jacque Fresco can best be quoted with the following:
"There are no Negro problems, or Polish problems,
or Jewish problems, or Greek problems,
or women's problems. They're Human problems!
Ladies and Gentlemen, it's my pleasure to introduce Jacque Fresco.
What is a Resource-Based-Economy?
I'm sure you all have heard about it.
But a Resource-Based-Economy is entirely different than anything that has ever existed in the past.
Most assertions, would ??? kings, politicians, statesmen; but nothing based upon resources.
To better undrestand the meaning of a Resource-Based-Economy,
picture an island somewhere in the South Pacific.
And you want to know... you really want to know how many people can that island support,
and to what degree can the extravagants of the island be maintained.
First you have to know how much wood there is, how much water, how much arable land.
Once you do a survey of the resources of that island,
that can best be the method for determining how many people will support;
if the ??? do not exist, you could only design a culture based upon the materials that do exist.
You can only grow food based upon the arable land area and the waters surrounding the island,
The ??? stations, all the other things.
And if you have an agronomist on the island, or a series of them,
they can advise you as what is best to grow in that tropical region.
So you really need technical competence, in order to arrive at decisions that make sense.
You cannot arrive at decisions that make sense by consensus. By asking people what they want.
You have to find out what the island has to offer.
And that's what you can determine the future by.
All other systems will fail.
The decisions are not made by the majority of the people.
Are made by the majority of people that have technical competence;
that have information in the areas you wish to ??? excel in.
And methods of scientific scales ??? and performance.
If you have a million sincere people that have no technical competence,
I can assure you, nothing would be accomplished.
So you have to ask the question(s)????
Can we build a society of sustainability?
If you have no information as to the availability of the resources, you cannot undertake such a project.
??? you have a shortage of resources. That's the function of research labs.
To make alternative materials that would substitute for lack of materials.
Technicians do not tell you what to do, or how to live.
They merely carry out the function of designing evelators, transportation units, bridges, housing systems.
They do not tell people what to do, what to think or how to live.
That's a mistake that most people make.
They think that a Resousce-Based Economy has technicians that also tell you what lifestyle to use.
No they don't. The resources determine that.
All that the technicians do is build a system that can utilize those resources for the benefit of all the people involved.
It has to be global. If it is not global, if you have most of the resources and most of the building equipment,
and most of the automated machinery, and most of the arable land, and most of the drinking water;
countries that do not have that will attempt to invade your country, and take what they need.
Every nation wants a piece of the pie. Keep that in mind.
So to the degree that you try to live a sustainable life to yourself, will not work.
Because other nations that lack material will invade you.
And the rebuilding of cities throughout the world, you have to consider how far those cities are from resources.
That means available materials: concrete, steel reinforcement e.t.c.
If the cities are near that source, then it becomes more efficient to design the cities as systems operations.
Meaning that a city itself must meet the needs of the people that live there.
We announced on television, what is available and what is not available at the time,
and when it probably will be available.
For the public has information of where to go to access whatever it is they need.
So people would have access to more thing that they've ever had in a monetary system.
More things and more opportunities would be available.
All of the cities are designed to utilize a minimal amount of energy for maximum service.
In that way, we can save energy so that we can handle more people.
There are people throughout the world that do not have access to high energy systems.
We will be able to provide more for human need, if we use efficiency.
Naturally if we fail to do that it can only take care of a limited amount of people.
(But) a Resource-Based Economy has millions of slaves, but they are machines.
And machines do repetitive, boring and dangerous jobs. That's what machines are for.
They are not to put you out of work. If they can turn things out faster than you, we don't need your work and ???.
We don't want you working in an industrial plant.
We want you to go back to school and study whatever you are interested in,
whatever you think you would like to study, whatever you feel you'd like to understand better.
Unfortunately, money doesn't represent things in existence.
If you set a value on every tree, every inch or arable land, all the water,
and you print it money proportional to the resources so that the money represents resources,
then it can have meaning. But today that is not a ???
although they may tell you that the man will bring about these things.
No, the man doesn't bring about the things. Available resources do.
And if money doesn't represent available resources it has no basis for social management.
When you live in a fault society, that bases his wealth upon money, then that society itself will collapse eventually;
Not because I say so. Because it's not based on physical reference.
And a Resource-Based Economy when production and automation can turn out more goods and services
has no need to use money anymore.
If you really wish to put an end to war, poverty, hunger, territorial disputes,
you must utilize all the world's resources as the common heritage of all the world's people.
Anything less than that, will remain ??? at the same problems that you've had continuously for centuries.
If you don't declare all the Earth's resources as the common heritage of all the world's people,
and bring all the seperate nations together in one, unified system, there is no solution other than that.
And this is why we recommend a Resource-Based Economy.
[Roxanne Meadows] Jacque continues to invent every day;to invent, to write, to work.
He has a zest for life that keeps him going and keeps him working.
And he is interested in things. And he is interested in what happens out there (and) how this will play out and how it will turn out.
Well very much wanting to introduce this direction to world so that's his prime focus.
And he does that in every way he can, by actually showing; It's not enough to just tell what the future would be like.
You show what people are missing???
He keeps coming up with new ideas, new inventions, new designs,
and proves what he has, represents them better, makes more models, makes more videos;
He's relentless at trying to get these ideas out. I think he fears where society is now.
It's not acceptable to him. But instead of just complaining he wants to propose an alternative.
Jacque spent a lot of time before studying people, he started studying how animals behave
and how to change behavior of animals or predict the behavior of animals.
And came to the conclusion that's really the environment
that changes behavior and enable us all to behave the way we do.
You know in the past people would say "You'd never be able to get to the moon. Not in a thousand years."
And they look up the next day and they were going to the moon.
They say: "You won't see that. Not in a thousand years."
We don't have to wait until we die for that.
We confront our problems today and not wait for the Mesaiah to come, with the white robe and change things.
We'll not go to heaven at the certain time, or those believers that go to heaven at the certain time.
We can deal with the problems today.
For instance, in releigion, they put things on the will of God. If there is an accident, it's the will of God,
and it stops you from thinking; it stops you from from being innovative; It stops you from thinking about:
"Well, how do we redesign the trasportation system so we don't have those problems any more."
Besides the tours ??? that I scheduled each Saturday,
Jacques is continuously creating and revising new designs in all areas of the social sequencus???.
For every design and drawing that keeps it probably throws out about ten.
He then selects from the scetches the ones that he want to be rendered into 3D animations.
[Jacque Fresco] This is for reviewing ??? ... this is for ....
What kind of world you want.
"It's my home. My grandfather was born there. My favorite city"
Does it mean that you would find out? Not necessarily.
Nothing I've talked about was against anyone. I didn't want to kill anybody, hurt anybody, put anymbody in jail.
and cool off when it's hot, it'll help the body to maintain optimum temperature.
(Yeah). It looks like the globe. That globe there makes all the decision because it's connected.
So you are looking at the real earth in real time. So you walk to the image screens and you talk.
So we don't need people in government. We need electronics in the field, production, distribution, weather...
Then tey'll lead you over to the aeroplane... there is ???
So we want to change the global environment, and make the Global University. All cities have a University.
but it has no kitchens in the bedrooms. It has a dining area.
And that doctor could study the condition without being there.
Each building generates its own electricity, it provides for all human needs,
And the amount of craftman, and the ammount of space, a lot of different things would not be the same.
If it took an industrial area with movable walls and some manufacturing process needed,
say a production of 100 ??? cars a day, that space could be assembled,
the two walls can move to accomodate the production method.
If we don't overcome scarcity, we cannot operate the system efficiently.
So the first thing that has to be done is groups of people or individuals have to work on problem solving.
It's why ??? in a lifeboat with a limited water. Do you give everybody a glass of water
or you give anybody water depending on their weight and moisture and evaporation of the body.
Now that have you decided that?
People tends to give each person an equal amount of water in scarcity. That does not make sense.
If a person weights 300 pounds and another person weights 79 pounts
Many people wonder what would drive people, if they have access to all their needs, what would happen to incentive?
What would motivate people, or something (to) gain. What's the gain?
Although the gain is that materials are available what would motivate them on to do better to what they have?
Need. We will always lack. And the fact that we'll always lack meaning that we cannot achieve perfection,
we cannot achieve trully dynamic equilibrium, we will always be in some form of disequillibrium.
With the elimination of scarcity, the essential incentives change toward problem solving, in general.
On a Resource-Based Economy people are brought up to understand on how they relate to their immediate environment.
And that the relationship to the environment is not the truth, it's as far as we know up to now.
and see how efficient it would be and then go back and build one in their country,
and it would kind of grow this way, a true evolution not revolution.
You cannot be a conventional architect, a conventional engineer,
work for the telephone company, or any other of the old establishment
and come up with an idea that is a radical innovation.
The space program takes new thinking; to save our country,
to save our land, to save our environment,
We must put our mind to this as we do to put a man on the moon.
We must put our mind to the social problem.
I am not your enemy, I am not trying to destroy things.
We must remember that this is a much better system than the current one,
not some utopia, because such a thing doesn't exist.
Technology and discoveries are constantly moving,
so you can not have the best technology and the best system,
it's a continuous process of progression.
For such a society, you need technology
that will free man from any unwanted work,
will produce plenty of goods and services,
and will lead automation to a new dimension.
A society in which everyone shares, and no one owns anything.
A society in which human beings use technology as extensions of themselves.
A highly educated society,
a society where information and technology will be accessible to all,
without any servitude.
A society where no one will be in charge, because it will not be needed,
a society without reasons for conflict.
A society where you will feel like a human being,
and the rest (technology, information, comfort, etc)
will only be an extension of you.
Come in.
This is so much better.
It's a lot like home.
You humans,
sometimes it's hard to imagine how you've made it this far.
