Perry Gruber’s resource-based economic system, Copiosis, creates safe, secure, peaceful, and prosperous communities.
Copiosis encourages everyone to pursue his or her dreams and talents, whatever they may be, while being kind and respectful to neighbors next door or around the world. Share your talents and abilities with the world in a productive way, get recognized and rich. It’s a no risk, no tax, no cost, free market, moneyless economy where everyone wins and nobody loses.
Do you love your job? Do you feel like your work is making the world a better place? If you do, congratulations! You are one of the few who do. Truth is that if they didn’t have to worry about money, most people would quit their job tomorrow and do something they love.
The amount of lost human potential in this economy is mind-boggling with the vast majority of human beings forced to compete for wages simply to survive, while a minority enjoys fulfilling lives doing things they love and enjoying fruits of that joyful activity. Today we turn people and nature into commodities used to perpetuate the system, while in the process stripping people of their dignity and nature of her resources.
What amazing thing would you do if you no longer had to work to simply survive?
Ironically, you do your best work when you’re not getting paid for it. Which is why in the future you won’t be paid. Instead, you’re free to do whatever you want. Yes, whatever you want. If what you do benefits another person or the planet, you’ll be rewarded.
That’s how you’ll get rich in the future.
Some think external motivation, like money, inspires top quality work. But if you look at top performers, their best work results from passion, not from reward motivation. Your best work does too.
For the first time in modern times, most parents believe their children’s lives will be bleaker than their own. Even for those lucky enough to graduate from the universities enabling access to the “good life,” most will be saddled with debt to work off in service to an economy many young people care little about. Meanwhile, rising inequality and militarism makes the world even less secure.
The natural world may not fare much better: by the time our kids have their grandchildren, what natural legacy will they get? In our hearts, if we are truly honest with ourselves, we know the current economy is tired and ready to go. We simply didn’t have an attractive alternative, until now.
Copiosis: an introduction
Copiosis can benefit everyone worldwide
While Gruber’s long-term goals of eliminating money and capitalism may seem grandiose, participants testing the system in Portland and California said that their involvement in this economic experiment is bringing them closer to their neighbors and providing them with a sense of community they didn’t have before.
No matter your political, social, environmental, economic, or spiritual views, you’ll find living in Copiosis more freeing and prosperous. In Copiosis, society doesn’t have to force everyone to get along through laws or punishment. It’s designed to bring out the best in human nature, so that being evil or mean literally doesn’t pay. Peace Officers still exist. Constitutional principles still hold. When everyone has their needs met, why not get along?
The incentives for home invasions, robberies, and most other crimes vanish when everyone is really free to live in vibrant, prosperous and moral communities open to all with no competition necessary. We’ve made possible massive industrial and social innovations and improvements in a clean environment. We’ve also made debt, taxes, and government unnecessary; freeing you to do what you want. Best of all, basic necessities are given to everyone and all this costs no one anything, including you, the rich, or anyone else.
How Copiosis works
In Copiosis, participants are “producers,” meaning they produce some sort of good or service. Artists might offer paintings. Those who enjoy gardening might offer vegetables.
All exchanges are recorded in an online software program that uses a detailed algorithm to calculate “Net Benefit Reward.”
If the product is a necessity, such as food, shelter or clothing, other participants can obtain it from that producer at no cost. Every time a producer gives someone a good or service, he or she receives Net Benefit Reward, or “NBR.”
The algorithm determines how much a product benefits society, and awards points based on that determination. For example, if a product feeds people, it’s beneficial – the producer gets points. If it’s healthy and grown organically, they would receive more points. If it’s unhealthy or its production harms the environment the producer loses points.
The person who’s providing the product doesn’t receive the NBR points from the person receiving it; they receive it from the software program as reward for providing the goods or service. Net Benefit Rewards are not money. Once you get NBR, it’s yours. How much NBR you get doesn’t limit how much another can get. Your NBR can’t be taken from you against your will. NBR is nontransferrable, meaning, you can’t give it to another person. NBR is good for one thing and one thing only: consuming luxuries.
Participants use the NBR they’ve accrued from benefiting society to buy “luxury items.” These are goods and services available that are not necessities. The more a participant benefits society, the more luxuries he or she can afford.
The Copiosis Algorithm
The Copiosis Algorithm is unique. Combined with other key Copiosis features, it rewards any human action in a measurable, easily understood way. That means, for the first time ever in history, almost anything you do benefitting others makes you richer. The algorithm includes every necessary component in calculating NBR, including science and data analysis, objective measures we all agree are important, and subjective consumer opinion too.
Because NBR is not limited, the algorithm can reward everyone with no regard for how much NBR others are getting. With just eight questions, the algorithm can measure any human action. In a way, NBR represents a person’s net benefit contribution to society.
