Also a huge financial burden which brings us now to the economy you know, for great many people it has become a system that is in part broken In part result of 2008 financial collapse. So how do we climb out and get to a place of progress? Big problems need big ideas. And here is one. Start with this. Money. And throw it away. It sounds crazy, right? Now we are gonna talk to someone who thinks this might be exactly what we need. Peter Joseph is the filmmaker and also the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement Hey there, Peter. I am, of course, simplyfying here. It´s not just get rid of money your currency. It is instead making this monetary based economy, you make it a resource based economy. Talk about what this actually means. Well, actually you have right. Resource based economy explicitly does want to remove the actual mechanics of exchange and the market system itself as radical as that may seem to most. You have to understand first of all that the problems we´re seeing in the world is not result of some bad policy or some legislation or some inflationary cycle boom and bust phenomenon that is typically taught in traditional economics. The very foundation of economic structure is intrinsically flawed. We create money out of debt. We charge interest on that, which does not exist. We create the principal but yet principal plus the interest is always outstanding It´s a game of musical chairs to put it into a singular phrase. Everyone systematically suffers through this system and is offset. So when you hear about debt collapse, sovereign debt defaults, these are inevitabilities of the system, not based on someone´s rogue policy or some flagrant activity of the stock market and derivatives, those are very important attributes of it but my point and my work with the movement is that the system is intrinsically, inherently flawed. Entrust on a scale, on a pace, in a way to make our societies sustainable not suffer all these economic consequences. We have to get down to the lifeground what actually supports human life what we´ve learned from the natural world, the systems that actually generate food. When you realize that we are living in a technical reality not a monetary one and if we, for example one child dies every five seconds from poverty and preventable diseases on this planet. This is of course not necessary technically. We can easily feed everyone on this planet. And when you extrapolate that train of thought, when you take technical perspektive as opposed to a monetary perspective we see weak result just about all the major human worls on this planet by restructuring the entire economical phenomenon to be truly economic meaning preservation, sustainability.... You were talking earlier and you said everyone suffers by this system. I think that may be. Let´s clarify little bit. A lot of people suffer but there are some people who want to keep this system exactly how it is. Isn´t that right? Let´s say upper one percent certainly has a prime interest has very easy way to justify the fruits that they have claimed. We have one percent of the world population owning 40 percent of the planet´s wealth. If that isn´t a sign post to the intrinsic flaw of this system. that is there to perpetuate one class over another. I´m not sure what is. So, yes. The proper one percent has very vested interest and naturally carries on the governments which are essentially funded and supported by the corporate instituions. I continue this.... You´ve written about this large gap between rich and poor and I know one point you´ve made in your writings is that America is one of the most socially immovable countries in the world I kind of stop and read that again when I thought that, but basically what you´are saying I think is you´re born poor, chances are you´ll stay poor other than of course a few exceptions How does this change under the Zeitgeist system? What´s a Zeitgeist system? This work builds upon research commitment by man of Jacque Fresco, which builds upon researchers from the past 150 years. People have continually thought about different economic model not based on monetary exchange and all of the intrinsic problems that come out of that. The Venus Project is something important to mention which I suggest people look into. That is a partnership with Zeigeist Movement and it´s a blueprint system based on referencing natural law. What that means you actually get to the lifeground as I mentioned earlier. You look into what it means to make a human being What it means to meet the needs of human necessity from obviously bare neccesities to all of the emotional and bio-psycho social phenomenon that generate our behaviour, generate our well-being, mental health when you put all this together, which is in completely technical orientation very limited when it comes to human opinion This is what science has given us by the way. You see our current economic model is stucked in time It´s not actually representing what needs human needs and more you step back and look how we can technically provide for the human population eliminate war, eliminate famine eliminate povery, eliminate 95 percent of most crime which by the way is monetary related. You began to see an entirely new approach can be taken It´s very difficult for me to describe that to you in a very short little segment but resource based economy is based upon resource management intrinsically Monetary relationships don´t manage anything. We have cost efficiency
