In theory, I like the idea of their Resource based economy. Using the scientific method to determine what the earths resources are, how to better sustain them and use them WISELY. However I can't see how they could balance the rest of the earths resources with the nearly 7 billion people now desperately grabbing as much of it as possible. Sure, they throw a whole bunch of numbers at you, but this is based on faulty data and hopeful projections. Grasping at straws while the earth is burning seems doomed to failure.
