This isn't any sort of short term solution, or probably even a within-our-lifetime long term one. It is just the goal we must strive to reach. this is what I posted in response to "What is the solution?":
"How about no money and no bartering, since that would only be money in disguise? I heard somewhere that there used to be a word called 'dineo', which meant gifts, which later became the Spanish word 'dinero' (money). Even if this is not true, it shows you the difference between a natural economic system, and a greed based one. After all, you do not usually barter with family and friends."
The world is our family, and its people are your friends. It is frustrating that I have only read two other people in my life with this idea, and the rest of people think it's just money or bartering.
