Currencies from gold to bitcoins have inherent issues, they require everything to be priced, they make money required for people to survive, they make people seek to earn money, and since money is rare it must be taken from other people which leads to robberies, scams, bankers, social classes, etc.
I'd like to know if a modern civilisation can develop an economic system where all the tasks/jobs to run the society/country are done and all the people receive what they need to live and accomplish their tasks, without money or barter. I'd like to know how such civilisation ensures that there is enough of each worker/skillset, enough of production, and how it prevents people to work too little or ask too much.
Basically if currency was to be abolished in a year, how would you rearrange your country without barter to get a stable economy and society.
My definition of the terms used in this question:
- money/currency: is something that has little use to the individuals (such as metal coins) but has a commonly recognized value the society that allows individuals to exchange it for any services or goods
- barter: is not money, is not a service, is a good that can be exchanged against any other good freely by individuals who agree to
- civilisation/city state: is a society whose development requires distinct skillsets (warrior, administrator, carpenter, miner, nurse, teacher, engineer etc.)
Clarification: I was advised to ask this question here instead of history or philosophy, and I know that this site is about fictional worlds, but my question concerns the real world we live in, so please don't go too crazy ;-)
