GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 19th February at noon SLT: Can we live without money?

2 months ago 39

There are some people who firmly believe that humanity should stop using money.  They point to those who are homeless or starving or dying from lack of medical care and say that all these problems would be solved if we lived in a society that did not depend on money.

Many different forms of money have been used through the ages: beads, shells, cigarettes, gold.  But has there ever been a society without any form of money at all?  What would happen to us if we stopped using it?  How would society work?  Or perhaps you think it would not work at all? 

Join us in GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss a world without money.  Would it be a utopia or a dystopia, or simply chaos?  Bring your friends and something to barter with.

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
