    > found that people didn't sit around and do nothing but instead took on jobs and were productive.

    One study I read about had an interesting outcome, the men got drunk all the time and did nothing. (Apart from brewing their own alcohol..)

    Whilst the women all started small businesses.


    Another one, the children stopped working in the fields and went to school.

    This had the unfortunate side effect of increased food prices as there wasn't cheap labour to bring home the crops.

    We could have a virtual environment and study human behaviour in that.

    I'm working on that one. :-)

    I have some ideas about how to prove this, but its costly... I would like to see what happens when people are placed in RBE, even today's people. And even people who are not exactly easily adapted to RBE and an access economy . such as the "bad dudes" The Donald likes to mention
    We need only look back to Native American History (and many other 'indigenous' people) for evidence of a working Resource Based Economic System (RBE), after all, its really the only type of system that was available or even considered....

    Unfortunately, it all fell apart soon after Europeans arrived and began 'taking' or controlling everything in sight..........and many of them still feel they are even more entitled....
