🪙 5 Characteristics of An Ideal Economy

30-Day Writing Challenge: 10/30

Characteristics of an ideal economy as described by Peter Joseph in The New Human Rights Movement:

1. Automation

Let machines do the tasks which they are efficient in. Use the output to provide universal income/food/utilities

2. Access

Create shared access to resources at a local level. Can be done with a group of trusted people, minimising risk of exploitation. Existing example: district library, funded by taxes

3. Open source

Best example: Wikipedia, World Wide Web, Linux (on which Android is based)

4. Localization

Instead of globalization. This could be more efficient. There would be more control at the community level. Could boost local entrepreneurship.

5. Networked digital feedback

Deploy a ton of sensors and connect them to a network. Analyse the data and optimise everything.
