"A World without Money" (London)

What does it take to produce all of the things we need in order to live? Human labour applied to nature given raw materials. Money enters the equation only because the means to life are owned by a privileged minority - the capitalist class.

Think of a different world. One in which the means of production, indeed all of the world's resources are owned in common, and democratically controlled, by all of its people. Where, therefore, goods and services are produced solely to be used and not for sale and profit: money no longer has any role to play. Where for example food is grown and processed simply because we need to eat, and everyone has free access according to need - so no one goes hungry! In this different world just imagine how human affairs will be organised and the possibilities for everyday life.
