In message #10905 John de Rivaz asked:
A question I would put up for speculation is if money ceases to exist, how 
can a member of a society without money put himself in a location he wants 
to be in, do what he wants to do and gather the people around him he wants

things will be 
accomplished in a simply more efficient manner.

Technology has enhanced enormously our enjoyment of life as a whole compared to 
the hunting-

Right now if you want to breathe air, you do not need to "trade" with anyone to 
do so.  (Except 
maybe in Mexico City and Tokyo).

When automatic production of goods and services makes these as cheap as air, 
(i.e., free) there 
will be no need for money.
