The death of currency.
I see it as only inevitable that money and trade as we have always known it dies. It might not be for a couple hundred more years. Maybe, a thousand or two, but it will certainly be something I know will come to an end.

What do you think our world might be like without currency to buy things? What kind of social structure, and structure our society might need to have in order for that to work outside of a dystopian here is what the state allows you since you are a part of X class citizen, now obey and do your job etc.

I see it as a time when society has evolved past violence "for the most part" and wars have ended because we have become so efficient that poor countries that we know today do not exist. Plus, we would be well on our way already terraforming mars or already had done so! It would probably require at least two to three generations of social engineering and "brain washing" to raise people under the right conditions so that all of humanity knows that without doing ones part or doing the best they can to keep the machine of humanity rolling, even if it means all they are capable of is maintaining electrical components at the coke factory or whatever lol. That without you being there, we cannot thrive in the way we do at that time and no one prospers.

I also see the death of the brand name, save for a few names here and there, as what we know today. There will probably still be a lot of them, people just wont start up companies that compete with each other like what they do today.

For those whom might argue the human competitive I want to be the leader of the world and rule over everyone so this will never possibly work.

I say to you......Compare the world to how it works today to 1000 years ago and you will have a pretty good idea of the direction we are going in.

The world changes, war changes, people change. In time, given enough changes we will far different than we are now. This is a real possible direction I see the world going in. Despite all the wars we have now, we are just on a surge of fighting in the middle east. If we were to take that away, there would be almost no war at all. Compared to 1000 years ago when peace almost anywhere would had been completely impossible. Let alone for something like the united nations to exist, or any other gathering of world leaders where they could gather and discuss politics and have a beer or do whatever else it is leaders do when they meet each other.

As for where someone ends up at when it comes to a job, I think at this point it might come down to people being given a job or a task to do and than given options of where they want to go to accomplish it from spots that are open. All of this might depend on their personality, intellect, and physical capabilities. It would seem a perfectly reasonable way to choose where people go in a society where you can have pretty much anything you want as long as your doing your part to keep pushing humanity forward.

As for countries and governments I am not sure of. A one world government might never work but at the same time, keeping them all separate is why we have war and other problems. So, either a completely new way of running an economy must be invented or some sort of hybrid one world government with separately ran sections might need to be invented in order for it to work.

What do you think? Is a world without currency possible to you? What might it look like?

I think I've seen this movie(s).

At some level I think there will always be a need for currency, or at least a barter-type system.
Not everyone is going to want to live like what you've described, there will be fringe societies. People on the outside.
This type of communist/socialist utopian society may not even be stable, let alone sustainable.

I think the concept is a nice idea; however as a self employed person: the first customer who tries to pay me in chickens is getting booted straight out of my cab! Wink

I Think; Therefore I Am....
...or is it the other way around?

RE: The death of currency.
Going digital will not take away social pecking orders, it will simply be a different type of exchange. Money before money was livestock and food. The danger in going all digital is that you can have even more of a monopoly of digital wealth, and that can create even more of a monopoly of power.

There is no way to get rid of human greed, there will always be those who will attempt to manipulate any system you set up.

RE: The death of currency.
"Digital money" is the worst joke ever.

At least with cash, a counterfeiter has to set up a printing press.

Digital? It's just a keystroke away.

I say bring back a bag of gold hung on your belt. That's harder to fake.

And a sword to protect it. That would be so cool.

The sword is to balance the weight of the bag of gold. Big Grin (and to look cool)

The Beretta is in the small-of-the-back holster. Drinking Beverage
