This book, “The First Civilization”, was created in order to further  awareness and acceptance of a Resource Based Economy by explaining and  defending this system from a scientific perspective. Beginning with a  brief introduction on human behavior and its relationship to the  environment, this book is divided into 3 main sections:
1. A detailed description of what an RBE could look like and how it  might be run, including the specific technologies that could be  employed.
2. An attempt to address and disprove many of the questions, concerns  and objections that have been brought up in response to the RBE  concept.
3. A general description of an experimental protocol that could be  used to test the RBE idea and provide a scientific basis from which to  push for a transition.
The book can be downloaded for free in pdf format here.

The greatest mystery of the Inca Empire was its strange economy
In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the Inca Empire was the  largest South America had ever known. Centered in Peru, it stretched  across the Andes’ mountain tops and down to the shoreline, incorporating  lands from today’s Colombia, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina and  Peru - all connected by a vast highway system whose complexity rivaled  any in the Old World. Rich in foodstuffs, textiles, gold, and coca, the  Inca were masters of city building but nevertheless had no money. In  fact, they had no marketplaces at all.
