    One thought on “Designing The Future”

    1. I agree that we need to change the way we're living. From both a sustainability and a humanitarian perspective. But I'm not sure that Fresco's vision is the solution. It's a long, long way between where we are now and having underwater cities where everyone walks around naked and no one is ever sad. I think Fresco should put more effort into affecting the transition than explaining how we'll still be able to express our individuality through our mix 'n' match domicile pods. I feel like a jerk fo [...]

    2. This is about the Venus Project. Anyone who doesn't know about it should go to thezeitgeistmovement, which I am a strong supporter of. It's an easy read that will help you understand Fresco's vision of a resource based economy and the structure of the future's outlook.

    3. This book lacks all merit. Do not bother reading a page.I picked this up after seeing a documentary on Mr. Fresco and learning of his supposed inventions and breakthroughs. After reading this, Fresco resembles Jeff Bridge's character in the Men Who Stare at Goats, with claims of amazing powers and technological innovation with very little to show for it except for some fun with LSD.First, this book is poorly written, incoherent, reading more like the rantings of an old man, which is clearly all [...]

    4. The main idea of this book is: In a Resource-Based Economy, it is established there is no money, no credits, no debt, and no servitude. Here, “all of the world’s resources are held as the common heritage of all of Earth’s people

    5. This was a thought-provocative book, especially in the first few and last chapters. The middle ones went into more or less technical details, which in my opinion were mostly superfluous as far as the main topic of the book is concerned, about urban management and the role and types of technology that could be used in the future. I took a lot of notes which I hope I will find the time to compose into a more coherent text, but since free time is a rare commodity for me these days (a problem that a [...]

    6. Decent primer on the command economy and post-scarcity life, along with what automation entails for humanity. It gets 4 stars rather than 5 for my usual compliment of reasons. It doesn't convey this information efficiently, using narrative format, it doesn't cater to a general audience (it uses big words and big ideas in a world populated by small minds with small vocabularies) and it's too ambitious. This idea could gain a lot of traction very quickly with the right idea architecture.

    7. I feel a lot of impotency because what Fresco says is very far from this reality. He offers solutions that sound very logic with material and technological resources available today. What it is not found in the present nor in the book is the transition to those futuristic cities. Very nice if you want to develop your thinking out of the box, creative thinking.

    8. He gets a bit repetitive at times, and alas, he's not well read on the whole Zero-Point Energy future.

    9. Unfortunately, there are a lot of repetitive ideas. It has to trim the fat and leave only most important things which would fit on one or two pages.
