The Venus Project is an organization founded by Jacque Fresco that advocates for what it calls a resource-based economy. The goal is to combine Fresco's versions of sustainable development, energy efficiency, natural resource management, and advanced automation in a global socioeconomic system based on social cooperation and scientific methodology.
The Venus Project was founded in 1995 as a for-profit corporation by Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows in Venus, Florida.
Fresco lectures his ideas and gives tours of the Venus Project location. The term "resource based economy" is used by the Venus Project to describe a hypothetical economic system in which goods, services, and information are free. Fresco argues that Earth has enough resources and that the practice of distributing resources through a price system method is irrelevant and counterproductive to survival.
