Is anybody familiar with the ideologies of Jacque Fresco, a social and industrial engineer?


He offers an alternative for our current economic system, shifting it from a scarcity based economy to a resource based economy.

Here are some videos that are really worth your time:

This might be the next step in our cultural evolution

He is an economic quack.  His theories would lead to mass starvation.

Explain and argue about your point.
