I would like some ideas on how the environment of a world where an economy (nothing financial and no currency system) did not exist - would be affected, would progress etc etc.

    $\begingroup$ Do you mean a barter system (which is a type of economy but without currency) or no economy at all? $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Sep 24 '14 at 16:16

    $\begingroup$ Do you mean that ownership is never exchanged? Or that there is no ownership and people help themselves to whatever they want? $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Sep 24 '14 at 16:17

    $\begingroup$ When you ask about "the environment" do you mean climate and ecosystems and how living things are affected, or the wider meaning of how the surroundings in general are affected? $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Sep 24 '14 at 16:22

    $\begingroup$ Are you specifically asking about a human world? Earth had no economy prior to the arrival of humans. It's worth being specific one way or another. $\endgroup$ – trichoplax Sep 24 '14 at 16:25

So the question is why would a people not trade.

A. They don't need to, they are altruistic and live in a pseudo utopia

B. They don't care to/don't see the point Fatalisitic what comes, comes

C. Have no sense of ownership. Everything is everyone's for the using/consuming, like a hive

    $\begingroup$ D. The people of the world are very territorial and don't accept strangers at all, so there is nobody outside the established group to trade with. $\endgroup$ – a CVn Sep 24 '14 at 16:58
