TZM founder Peter Joseph will be visiting Berlin, Germany on November 12, 2013 to deliver a presentation entitled “Economic Calculation in a Natural Law/Resource-Based Economy”.
This advanced presentation will answer questions related to the economic feasibility of a “post-scarcity” modeled socioeconomic system, as proposed by The Zeitgeist Movement, delving into exactly how resource management, allocation, sustainability protocols and other critical factors are calculated, along with the nature of social participation.
Standing in stark contrast to the current “proxy” management process known as the price/profit system and the traditional market practice of competing businesses and general exploitation, a Natural Law/Resource-Based Economy follows a train of thought which arrives at an improved mode of economic unfolding which can structurally assure both environmental and cultural sustainability, while alleviating enormous levels of stress both with respect to our personal well-being and with respect to our global ecological footprint as a species.
This new approach is about taking a direct technical orientation to social and economic management as opposed to a monetary or political one, with public health given the most critical importance. It is about updating the workings of society to the most advanced and proven methods science and technology have to offer, leaving behind the damaging consequences and limiting inhibitions which are generated by our current system of monetary exchange.
This event will be organized and hosted by the Berlin chapter of The Zeitgeist Movement.

Colin Turner believes a world without money is "not just possible", but "preferable and urgently necessary for humanity to progress". He stated that, "For the first time in history, we have the skills and resources to create abundance in the world, eradicate scarcity and all its associated suffering through the effective use of technology."
"For example, right now, we could build an entirely automated farm in a famine-stricken area, to feed thousands of people, if we didn't have to think about cost, but instead just decided to do it.
"We don't need money to create a futuristic and abundant society, we just need to have the vision and to start working together to make it happen," Mr Turner said.
The Dubliner acknowledges the influence of Peter Joseph's Zeitgeist movement and Jacque Fresco's The Venus Project in the development of his own philosophy. Colin is also the creator of the Free World Charter, a statement of principles that has the potential to optimise life on Earth for all species, eradicate poverty and greed, and advance progress.
