resource based economy
While we/the system continue to accept that building wealth both can be done and is what should be done, it is really fiction. You can build a house, a boat or even a piece of software. But, you cannot build wealth.
The fact that you think of it in the context of the current -isms (Capitalism, Communism, Marxism, Socialism, ...) makes it very hard to really see what it means or how it could happen.
First, of course, is the fact that Kubuntu is a resource. Like all non-prorietary software, it is not scarce as anyone can get it for free. The limiting factor is distribution. It is a full CD (700MB) of software. The issue is, of course, delivery.
Clearly there are some strange dynamics going on and all indications are that for Fresco and Meadows it is my way or the highway. As an outside observer, it seems like a mistake.
Part I of the book deals with what is possible. While there are some solutions they propose that have so far proved to be not a good soltuion, the concepts are right on. They put a lot of effort into showing us what is wrong socially and politically that creates problems and wastes resources that, if used correctly, could give us the 21st century they describe.
