"The First Civilization" - A free book about a Resource Based Economy

This book, "The First Civilization", was created in order to further awareness and acceptance of a Resource Based Economy by explaining and defending this system from a scientific perspective.

Beginning with a brief introduction on human behavior and its relationship to the environment, this book is divided into 3 main sections:

1. A detailed description of what an RBE could look like and how it might be run, including the specific technologies that could be employed.

2. An attempt to address and disprove many of the questions, concerns and objections that have been brought up in response to the RBE concept.

3. A general description of an experimental protocol that could be used to test the RBE idea and provide a scientific basis from which to push for a transition.

The book can be downloaded for free in pdf format here.

TYPO ON PAGE 28

It was just pointed out to me that on page 28, it says the word "logarithmic" when it should say "algorithmic". Not a huge deal, but it's probably worth mentioning in case there's any confusion. The full phrase should read "ALGORITHMIC decision making"

A professional proof-reader would have been fantastic, but unfortunately there is no professional version. This might change in the near future; I'm already considering making an updated version in a few months. But for now, everyone will have to settle for this version.
