[edit] Peter Joseph

Most of the notions about a Resource-Based Economic Model produced by The Zeitgeist Movement come directly from Peter Joseph's films, guides, radio shows and interviews.[citation needed] The concept of a Resource-Based Economy was massively popularised as a result of Peter's films Zeitgeist: Addendum and Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, with more than 4 million and 18 million views in YouTube alone, respectively.[citation needed]

[edit] The Transition

Peter Joseph makes 5 key points near the end of the first part of his lecture on the transition and in the beginning of the second part[1].

  1. The market beast is debt and everyone out there needs to do whatever they can to get out of debt.
  2. The transition does not change the end goal. To illustrate this point he uses the example of needing to go to a

store to get a dire medical perscription. You would not shrug it off just because you forgot the directions. We know what the goal is and that the goal is needed.

  1. We are always going to be in some kind of transition[2].
  2. We are not specifically out to get rid of police, in the same way we are not specifically out to get rid of

government. We argue that the closer we are to a true RBE, the less and less need there will be for police and government and law.

  1. No single country can create a true global RBE on it's own because a true RBE is based on planetary management.

[edit] TEDx

Peter Joseph prepared a pre-recorded presentation to be shown at a TEDxTemplate:Where, called "An intro to a Resource-Based Economy [ TEDx - Peter Joseph ]".[3] In this presentation, Peter presents the following notions about a RBE:

  • It is based on the Intelligent Management of the Earth's Resources, rather than money [00:08-00:18] (see also the book "The Best that Money Can't Buy", pp. 73 & 123)
  • Meet the needs of the human population through the most efficient strategic and sustainable method drawn from the physical world [00:18-00:26]
  • (incomplete)
