The Venus Project is a futurist, technocratic political movement founded by industrial designer and futurist Jacque Fresco.

Fresco advocates a 'resource based economy', whereby he advocates for a central index of global resources to be optimally distributed by AI algorithms.

On the ground, the project's main activity is their utopian city in development in Venus Florida.

The resource based economies have been criticised by both anarchists[1][2] and libertarians due to it's similarities to communism.[3][4][5]

Zeitgeist Movement

In 2008, TVP was featured in independent film Zeitgeist which went on to spawn the Zeitgeist Movement, a global drive for a resource based economy.

In 2011 the two organisation officially split up due various ideological differences.[6][7]
