Hoping for the collapse of the current economic system...(part 2)

Hello all...

Well, this is the second part of my idea for a new economic system.

In my last post I explained how the current capitalist system is basically a dead system and it should be replaced and replaced with the TIME system.

'But, avid, but how will be able to buy stuff if everything is measured in hours and minutes?'

Simple: everything will have to be convert from dollars/cents to hours/minutes.

Sure, there will be some adjustment or growing pains to this new system, but after awhile, it will be like the old system.

But instead of carrying paper/coins, you would be carrying a debit/banking card. So in that respect, everything will be the same.

Here's another idea I had brewing in relation to the TIME system:

The current job market will be totally restructured.

Follow me with this...

Instead of staying with a single job forever, you could work at any job (as long as your qualified for it) for as long or as little as you want.

'Whaddya mean avid?'


You need some TIME, you walk into a fast food place and ask if you can work for a few hours. After you worked your time, you'd be able to leave and work at another job...

Even though some jobs would be a semi-permanent basis(police, fire, hospital, etc.).

As long as you got your TIME recorded on your card, it wouldn't matter what type of work you did.

In that respect, all jobs would be equal.

But like I said, all this is just a radical concept and can be tweaked.

Think about it...

Thanks for reading!

A friend and I were discussing the abolishment of currency for the past two weeks, and he came to a similar kind of conclusion, but it isn't as well-developed as yours.

Here's a thought for you: Your idea of time as a replacement of currency is too sudden if you want the change already. You have to let society get used to not using money, a.k.a. evolution. I was thinking that Socialism then true Communism should be re/introduced in that order, but I bet America's still scared shitless of Commies, let alone terrorists...

Well, the system is about to collapse sooner rather than later at the rate things are going. So better to have a back up plan set up than going WTF when the sh*t hits the fan.

And Socialism/Communism only works on a small scale. But not on a large scale like the United States...

well is capitalism working for the majority in our current society? it seems to only work 4 the top excessively rich few/ like 2 percent of the population. who 2 say if socialism would work for us the majority non rich in society? y r u so quick to dismiss? capitalism isn't exactly a fair, equalitarian, compassion based, humanitarian system, watsoever....could a socialist society b any worse? maybe just 4 the rich few, yea. those that have everything n more wouldn't like the change! that's 4 sure.

^A lot of systems start falling apart when there's too many people. Just look at big cities and their problems. Then again, I'm just a 16-year-old.

And that's why the communist system ended up failing in Russia.

The whole problem with any economic system is that it doesn't take into account any one of various influences that could affect it.

No system is ever perfect. Sure, it may run good for awhile, but sooner or later, it will end up either crashing or replaced by a different system.

The whole issue here is that no one wants to ADMIT that this system is busted and wants to change it.

We have been indoctrinated with the 'you don't work, you don't eat' philosophy for so long that we can't/won't take care of people who actually need help...

Damn...this could be another blog
