Questions about resource based econ

  • How do you bootstrap RBE? How do you move in the right direction, starting from where we are?
  • What is the smallest scale where RBE seems plausible? 
  • How does RBE handle innovation? Will that also be automated, or does sustainability imply stasis?
  • To what degree does RBE attempt to build on the ideas of market socialism, and respond to criticisms of that approach?
  • Do the RBE believers really understand coercion and exploitation? You may be able to convince me that it is possible to get rid of one while ignoring the other (or maybe not). But using one to get rid of the other? Really?
