What will the world be like if there was no money? Will homelessness end? Would society be better off?
In a world where money has become the ruler of our needs, it is difficult to even imagine without it. But well it is understandable when money does all the talking. As such, it is difficult to even imagine a world without money so I have decided to do all the hard work for you.
Therefore, sit back, relax and read on!
In a modern society where money will not exist, first things first, nothing is going to be sunny and all fine. It will be the survival of the fittest.
The streets will become a dangerous place. No longer will you be able to just walk about. All things will lose its value. People work with the intention of receiving something, money in return. So, what will happen if money does not even exist? Chaos.
No body will want to do anything as there is no reward or in other words, pay check system.
In the earlier times, barter system did exist when there was no system of value. But it will be exceedingly difficult to once again re-establish the barter system in the modern society. It will be difficult to bring forth a proper exchange rate.
Moreover, law and order will perhaps not exist at all. Why? Because without any money there will be no value of anything. Looting and theft will skyrocket. In our present-day world, we do understand what we can do and what we can get away with. But without anything to keep the people in check, no body will be needed to ensure maintenance.
And technology will most probably be thrown down the drain. Power requires money. Gasoline requires money. Running water requires money. Literally everything requires money from internet to cell service. Without money? We will live in utter technology blackness.
No body will be compelled to keep the power running or maintain cell service or ensure that running water will be provided to everyone. Without money to give in exchange for their services, everyone will be in their own merry way to survive.
Only those who have weapons with them, perhaps guns, will fair comparatively better than the rest. They most probably will group together and raid other groups of people weaker than them or establish acquaintances with communities.
Raids will take place all the time. The stronger ones will ambush the weaker ones.
But on the positive, there may not be any racism or prejudice. As all these divisions come about along with greed and money, so without money racism will be wiped out.
