The Milky Way Galaxy Regional Message Board
Oh my god, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean any offence, I just tend to assume everybody is American - I never think about the hurt and the emotional turmoil I'm flinging around by doing so. I hope I can make it up to you some day, though I don't know how.
I guess the capitalism must have thrown me. Yes, I can see how it might be difficult to be a libertarian in Canada. I'm of a libertarian persuasion myself, but good luck finding anybody in Blighty who even knows what it means.
So, are you out of uni now? Have you designed anything cool yet?
It's not just that there's a place for currency, but even in a currency-free economy you can msasure
GDP and such, because foreign currencies will still assign value to products and services and hookers.
In other news, the Federation has 46 Dawkins. Do you think he will mind being cloned that many times?
Science damn it!
And no offense taken, though I suspect that was all in jest. Also, no, I'm still in school for another two years. I'm not THAT old.
Damn. That makes me old then.
Get back to bed old man!
Actually no, slack off on NS more, Jullin. And together we can rule this galaxy as two people who have never met before!
Well that's how I ruled my last Galaxy, and it worked alright. It's good practice give your partner presents in that situation. It keeps them sweet.
Until one of them explodes. MWUHUHUHAHAHAAAAA. Ahem.
Post-Scarcity has no use for money, GDP etc. If it's truly post, you don't need services, you have the means to do whatever you want yourself, you don't need trade etc, the only thing that would still be scarce is ideas, and they could literally be bartered for.
Bartering is fine between friends, but I doubt the future holds small communities as opposed to urban sprawl, in which case barter is horribly inefficient.
How many songs must I sing to get your painting? How many revelations must this philosopher have to get me to compose? The author who spends a year writing a book, should he give his story as equal trade for an interesting sculpture that took the artist three days? I suppose that's up to him, but the point is, goods, any goods, should be translated into an agreed upon medium, or currency.
This does not mean it need be money, mind you. But some medium of exchange is the most efficient and logical form when not dealing with friends and family.
