Post-employment economy

A post-employment economy is an economy in which employment is no longer used as the basis for allocating basic needs.

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.
