    The principles in this book may well be what s needed for the human race to survive History shows us that established institutions and the current economic model ultimately create scarcity And depravity, corruption, greed, crime etc are not the core problems, they are symptoms With the track record humanity has so far, a redesign of obsolete institutions, structures and traditions makes sense Ideas can become obsolete, just as my computer already is Is the Venus Project the ultimate answer The principles in this book may well be what s needed for the human race to survive History shows us that established institutions and the current economic model ultimately create scarcity And depravity, corruption, greed, crime etc are not the core problems, they are symptoms With the track record humanity has so far, a redesign of obsolete institutions, structures and traditions makes sense Ideas can become obsolete, just as my computer already is Is the Venus Project the ultimate answer It doesn t claim to be, but we would be well served to start talking about likely outcomes and possibilities vs clinging to our traditions

    I m a bit disappointed because I expected this book to getspecific and clarify Jacque s vision well enough that I d be able to thoroughly explain it to other people Unfortunately, I find I m still left with some unanswered questions I also found it repetitive, especially as someone who s already somewhat familiar with the venus project.But that being said, I think Jacque is brilliant, I like his ideas, and I thought this book was a worthwhile read.

    Powerful book that will help you re examine assumptions we all make about how society is structured etc.The first half discusses problems with our current systems and modes of thinking, while providing better alternatives.The second half delves into what a possible solution would look like including technology, etcI want to read this one again and again.


  8. John J Koch John J Koch says:

    This book is far from perfect, and many of Fresco s ideas are outmoded or highly improbable But that being said I have yet to find ainteresting vision of the future.

    A very very good book His work is based on experimental evidence and conceptual design which derives from it This is based also on work of many scientists in a variety of disciplines Some people do not have enough knowledge to understand all aspects of this work And why should they This is a multidisciplinary approach which is explained to common people in a language that is easy to understand talking about the little book Jacque skipped a technical jargon and a boring academic talk an A very very good book His work is based on experimental evidence and conceptual design which derives from it This is based also on work of many scientists in a variety of disciplines Some people do not have enough knowledge to understand all aspects of this work And why should they This is a multidisciplinary approach which is explained to common people in a language that is easy to understand talking about the little book Jacque skipped a technical jargon and a boring academic talk and writes to us in a way which wakes interest and provides holistic insight about a new social and a new economic system.The funny thig is that all the evidence to support his ideas exists for several decades, but people still do not take the time off to study all those fields but rather jape and speculate Well, it is easy to speculate rather than study Some recommended books which support this approach are on their website www.thevenusproject.com Good job Jacque
