Universal Economics (UnEc) is a non-money alternative economics system which combines the efficiency of a market economy with a strong philosophy of social responsibility. It was first visualized in 1947 by philosopher Addison Brown, in a rudimentary form, as “Prior Choice Economics.” But the technology for implementation did not exist at that time. Now it does.

UnEc is not simply “cashless” in the sense of EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), but is literally a new paradigm of economic activity that transcends money the way money transcended the barter economy thousands of years ago.

The basic necessities of life (i.e. food, shelter, clothing, health care, education, etc.) are easily provided to all members of society whether they are currently working or not. There is no taxation of any form, so productivity is never penalized.

    Sounds like world currency.
    One computer controls all. Transparent taxes. President, then Congress have highest pecking order.
    How interesting that UnEc begins with “UN” – as in “United Nations”. Fitting.
    All it needs is RFID implants to be the “Mark of the Beast” – But this is already provided in ObamaCare.

      World currency? UnEc has no currency, that is the point. And no taxes. Goods and services are simply given away to consumers. The UnEc computer does not “control,” it merely records. The president does have highest pecking order in this suggested Reward List, but that will be decided democratically by society. Would you prefer the present system, where the corporations control our society?

      How do you get world currency out of no currency? And how in the world do you get obamacare out of it.? You must be making a comment about another doc.

    The only problem I have is that the filthy rich that gave us this economic disaster would be granted a position at the top of the point list because of their wealth. Remove the point list and use the first come first serve no matter what position and individual has. This would also eliminate the problem of hacking into point list and aranging the hierachy.Why not make everyone equal?

    I hear you brother. We grappled with these issues for years. But if we throw away the Points List then we have to throw away the Reward List. Then we have a system with no differential rewards. Human Beings are competitive by nature, that is not a bad thing. Of course we are also cooperative by nature. To design a practical system we have to balance these two characteristics. The “filthy” rich will all be gone within a generation of the implementation of Universal Economics. There is no money to be inherited in UnEc. Of course the family will inherit any goods and property accumulated up to that point, but that is very different from the tremendous raw anonymous power that money confers. And UnEc Points CANNOT be inherited. We want the most skilled system administrators near the top of the Reward List to guarantee the security of the network, so that hacking is not a real problem. We can do this in UnEc because “cost” is not an issue, we can build whatever redundancies and systems we need to insure this. UnEc is similar in principle to Fresco’s “Resource Based Economy,” but in my opinion his interpretation is not very practical at this stage of human evolution.

    The idea is great and all, however some major flaws did not seem to be addressed. Firstly, converting existing funds and assets to put people higher up in the pole. That will only keep the rich richer and the poor poorer. This is simply a tactic being used to maintain the holding of larger portions of the pie. I still see no consequences for those who abuse their positions doing trade deals. Secondly, food. Some people like to choose what they eat, and they want organic. Where will radiated and GMO food labelling stand? Thirdly, why would the use of machinery continue if we needed to keep all these people contributing? It would be better for everyone to receive land that they can cultivate their own food on, and maintain self sufficiency using free energy. Certain lands and homes may require more than others in order to achieve this. We would have to examine monuments like that of Maccu Pichu where the inhabitants learned to work with their land, rather than introduce invasive man made techniques. Industrialized agriculture would absolutely have to end. Military would be required to defend environment over corporations, or they would render themselves unable to eat. I get the idea that everybody needs their basics covered, but this is also creating a loophole for a massive monopolization of multiple markets. It is an economic global takeover project. The same people will be left in charge, and will have an excuse to create further dependencies on outside sources that aren’t entirely necessary. The public should ideally be taught how to create their own wealth and live within their means. (ie plant vegetables, compost, recycle/reuse, basic nutrition and health management etc.) If we were to all live a little more modestly, would we really require international trade? Our trade demands would drop significantly, and our strength as nations would rise. There is currently a very unhealthy codependence between consumer and creator that is governed by a standard of living mentality. If that structure is balanced with a quality of living mentality, progress can be made. Ignoring these things and moving forward with the UNEC system, appears to be a desperate move to maintain a form of order that is disproportionate to any individuals true potential. Hopefully this would make room for doctors to be doctors because they are gifted with talent and skill, rather than because they were some of the fortunate few who could afford it. That horrible cycle of paying for education and status in the world, has created the mess we live in today, and it needs to end and restart immediately. Education will have to be less standardized and individualized to ensure that the same toxic and fearful leaders do not continue their damage on society. Perhaps it would be best to simply realize that the whole idea of large, central, industrialized, monopolized business is the cause of the issue here. It is impossible to believe that functioning in such an extremely structured model will help any individual achieve any level of potential or progress. Removing the dependency in its entirety is the course of action that needs to be taken here. Smaller cities create more of a commune for morale, create senses of confidence, allow for transparency, and waste fewer resources. If the monetary system changes, other factors must change, and done so with consent of the population. A war isn’t necessary to reclassify land, and people with overage can always pay a tax with goods and services volunteering. We as people all need to learn to self sustain, and be awarded the opportunity to achieve the task. We are only as strong as our weakest link. Strong education and hands on assistance is required in this area, but it will hold people accountable for their own efforts. Group sessions can be held to get the information out, and make resources equally available for everyone. People can place items by matter of importance into a voting system, and small communities and co-ops can be organized based on their individual preferences. ‘Those who are more social can flourish in closer quarters, and those who are more sensitive to EMF and radio frequencies or introverts, can work on farms etc. It is possible to even grow food in apartment buildings with very little modification if any. Jobs will be created in solar panel manufacturing, water filtration etc, thus lightening the burden for shortcuts made at the source. There is a lack of connection existing in society, and the proposed plan by the UNEC system will only exacerbate the existing issues if these flaws remain overlooked, and further closes the doors on individual freedom. This is unacceptable.“
