Could stable fusion end money?


Recommended Posts

If we had a continuous energy source that put out more energy than it takes to maintain, then we could actually have the energy output to change the chemical composition of most commodities and meet the energy demands of our industries endlessly. With all the automation these days, is it feasible with stable fusion to do like the Venus Project and to do away with capitalism and sort of just supply our citizens as needed? Or would there still be a need to deny people of certain luxuries based on income? Do you think it's possible we could ever be away from the monetary system without stable fusion? What are your thoughts?

I think there will always be money however with stable fusion I think energy would be cheaper with advances in food replication by 3-D printing or nanofabrication I think you could just print food using energy and change the chemical composition of materials to food and various other commodities however there will probably always be money.

 

"The replicator is a device that is used to "synthesize meals on demand" aboard the space ship. The real life version — dubbed The Genie — can prepare meals in 30 seconds or less and is controlled with an app. The Genie apparently can make an "unlimited amount of meals" using pods filed with dehydrated ingredients."

Why though? As it stands the reason the militarization (via policing) of money was enforced was because the just isn’t enough production to sustain a growing population. Some people get food and board because of a menial excuse of having money basically, while others are forcibly evicted. This happened to my family, my dad lost his job and the police tore our family apart over bills. If we have this technological innovation of stable fusion and full technical autonomy what excuse is there to do things like that?

Why?, Most Humans in this modern era are like the Ferengi from Star Trek.
