Interesting book on sale today at Audible, their Daily Deal. For a mere $2.95 you can study the concept of post-scarcity, post-capitalist economics, working backward from the Star Trek Universe. The premise is that in a world where our basic needs are taken care of, the nature of human desire changes. Having conquered scarcity, a new form of socialism can emerge that allows human beings to flourish. This was one of Marx’s points. Is such a world possible? I’ll direct you to Manu Saadia’s Trekonomics: The Economics of Star Trek.
