Although there are many types of economy in which employment has never been used for this purpose, there are a number of problems not addressed directly by these systems:
- how to transition gracefully from an employment economy. especially one in which the majority have built their identity and sense of self-worth around the idea of employment
- how to "scale up" these systems, which typically are found in small manual-labor societies, to a society that is large and highly automated
For implementation ideas, see ICMS.
The need for a post-employment economy has been made clear by rising jobsolescence.
