I've been thinking what we could do as humans if the economic side of the world was shut down - we make the posession of money useless.
If we managed to get society to understand and fully believe the idea that we are an intelligent form, created through a random process. That we are a mere blink of time amongst possibly infinity. That as intelligent beings we can collaborate together and build ourselves a paradise. We are only here for a short period of time, why can't we unite together to make it a heaven on earth? Where anone and everyone can make a change in the world and make it a better place. If such a mindset were created, space travel developments would suddenly explode. Poverty and the worlds diseases would be completely removed. We'd simply collaborate in order to keep building a better life for ourselves. Everything to satisfy our every need and desire.
It's really a rather sad reality :\

We would most likely all die off. You have a shallow conception of economics. For example, the reason why the USSR collapsed was because it is impossible, over the long run, to efficiently utilize resources without some price mechanism in effect. Go ahead and get rid of all our economic structures, and you'll see massive riots and chaos.

Economies don't usually collapse because of inefficiency or incorrect ideology. They collapse for one of three reasons: external attack, climate change or internal corruption.
Since many of the world's nations today are facing all three of those situations, and all economies are interconnected, we'll soon find out what happens in case of a domino-effect collapse.
