Steady state economy A steady state economy is an economy of relatively stable size. It features stable population and stable consumption that remain at or below carrying capacity. The term typically refers to a national economy, but it can also be applied to the economic system of a city, a region, or the entire planet. Note that Robert Solow and Trevor Swan applied the term steady state a bit differently in their economic growth model. Their steady state occurs when investment equals depreciation, and the economy reaches equilibrium, which may occur during a period of growth. Physical features
In a sentence: by increasing the amount and quality of physical goods (through automation) via freely available open-source channels, until it makes no sense for anyone to rely on anything else. The transition beyond our current institutions to post-scarcity, due to social and political reasons, may though be harder than actually developing the technologies required to support a technological post-scarcity. However some form of true post-scarcity - perhaps regulated at the personal consumption level unless agreed at a community/regional level for larger projects - where all people on Earth do not have to work for pay, or any kind of exchange, and have a very high standard of living does appear possible on the face of it. The Earth's crust contains quintillions of tonnes of useful elements; energy is plentiful (solar, geothermal, nuclear) and automation of everything significant including the fabrication of other automated systems is likely to be within mankind's capabilities.

An Abundant World Do you remember the movie Spaceballs? There is a scene in which President Skroob, played by Mel Brooks, reaches into his desk drawer to open a can of clean “Perri-air” after assuring a news agency that “there is absolutely no air shortage whatsoever.” While it may seem ludicrous that there would ever be a scarcity of clean air, living in polluted cities such as Beijing, Manila, or Los Angeles shows that clean air is not as abundant as it once was. For most of us, it is hard to imagine an abundant society.

The $100bn Facebook question: Will capitalism survive 'value abundance'? Chiang Mai, Thailand - Does Facebook exploit its users? And where is the $100bn in the company's estimated value coming from? This is not a new debate. It resurfaces regularly in the blogosphere and academic circles, ever since Tiziana Terranova coined the term "Free Labour" to indicate a new form of capitalist exploitation of unpaid labour - firstly referring to the viewers of classic broadcast media, and now to the new generation of social media participants on sites such as Facebook. The argument can be summarised very succinctly by the catch phrase: "If it's free, then you are the product being sold."
Practical Post Scarcity: Open Source Solutions
Theft, or post-capitalism? About twenty years ago one of my college housemates, Jerry, had an idea. “What if you could send music over the internet?” This was the age of 2400 baud modems that made crazy high pitched noised while they tried to connect to the internet. My 20 megabyte external hard drive for my MacPlus computer had set my parents back about five hundred bucks. Watching Open Source Destroy Capitalism | The Blog of J.D. Moyer

- by Dror Hilman -In a world of accelerated and unexpected development, we should start to separate from the models that dominated society over the past century, and get ready for a dramatic change. What will the new paradigm look like? It is impossible to predict exactly. But here are some changes borne on the wings of the new technological revolution, signaling to us what the transition period might look like. An era where money and politics are still important, but less so.. A Resource Based Economy - the Beginning

I probably don’t need to regale you about the economic troubles of our generation. Manufacturing work has been declining for decades hurting the economic prospects of the working class. Professional occupations are now suffering as well, enough so that even the mainstream media gets it. Unemployment is near 50% for new graduates and young people are being hammered by the recession.

What about democracy? A Resource Based Economy
What about “Democracy” in an R.B.E.? [Originally posted in Aug 2011's TZM Newsletter] Before we begin, the subject of social participation in an R.B.E. is extensive, and to those unfamiliar with other discussions of this issue in our materials it can seem complex and foreign. It isn’t the scope of this essay to be definitive as it would be substantially long. The following presents a basic overview along with select points for consideration. What about “Democracy” in an R.B.E.M.? by Peter Joseph

Titan supercomputer could be the world's most powerful Is the new supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Labs the most powerful machine on Earth? It might be. But we won't know for a few more weeks. Uncloaked on 29 October by Oak Ridge -- a Tennessee lab run by the US Department of Energy -- the Titan supercomputer is a Cray machine made of nearly 19,000 processing units stitched together with 710 terabytes of memory. It can perform 20 thousand trillion calculations per second, or 20 petaflops. That's enough to put it on top of the world, for the moment at least.
In the first commercial application of CeNSE technology, HP and Shell will build a wireless sensing system to acquire high-resolution seismic data. By vastly improving the quality of seismic imaging, the new system will allow Shell to more easily and cost-effectively explore difficult oil and gas reservoirs. The ground-breaking solution will be delivered by HP Enterprise Services, and will include HP’s high-performance sensing technology, a recent breakthrough from HP Labs and the company’s Imaging and Print Group. The solution will provide a better picture of existing and alternative energy resources – allowing Shell to perform more targeted oil exploration and reduce their environmental impact. Labs' Central Nervous System for the Earth project aims to build a planetwide sensing network: HP Labs Feature Article (November 2009)
Many who read about the Resource-Based Economic (RBE) model wonder how such a thing would be possible ever, especially when many consider it to be possible with today’s technology. There is already a well-established science on resource management and efficient decision-making. Computer science has a significant requirement for the wise management of resources and efficient decisions regarding their use. Much of the hard work of understanding and implementing a Resource-Based Economic Model, or more generally a Natural Economic Model (one which does not use price or ownership systems), has already been considered, implemented, and tested by computer scientists.
