Trekonomics Download ✓ 104 Manu Saadia â 4 Download Free read Trekonomics Rekonomics looks at the morals values and hard economics that underpin the series’ ideal society and its sources of inspiration both inside and outside the science fiction canon After reading this book you’ll be able to answer the uestion If you could live in Star Trek’s economic utopia would you want This is a rather hard book to review because I wanted so so much to love it The second I saw an internet article about the idea I was on Inkshares to support throw money at the endeavor and asking my friends to do the same My partner and I ended up pre ordering two copies because we were worried that it wouldn t make its goal and be published Well this book was not successful Perhaps the reason is that this book not only needed a good editor and perhaps something akin to a phd mentoradvisor but also perhaps the author was not the right person to write it Take for example this uote from the last chapter of the book when discussing the Great voyages of discovery in the world s historyPersonally I find it very reassuring even heartwarming that great explorers and inventors should be so typically human They were strivers small minded low rent busy bees I like that That means they were just like you and me just a tiny bit crazier or luckier 216 Regardless of his thoughts on the kinds of Christopher Columbus I think this is really indicative of just how he feels about Star Trek and the world it inhabits He dismisses space travel and other space ventures because they cost too must He disparages the characters on TNG for no learning no growing 166 despite evidence to the contrary on its seven seasons that the author ignores and constantly discusses DS9 for its depiction of flawed individuals and life beyond the Federation the very thing he s supposedly writing a book about If he dislikes utopia and a world with much of the strife of our current century noticeably absent what is it exactly that he likes about Star Trek He devotes an entire chapter to the Ferengi and after a well recognized parallel in 20th21st century capitalists he all but praises how great they are and how admirable their culture Of course some discussion is obviously necessary but his tone changes rather dramatically hereUltimately this book doesn t cover much economics at all I was really disappointed as the title implies that this is exactly what the book is about the economics of Star Trek Unfortunately he goes on and on about scarcity and the distribution of resources Which while it can t be the only possible issue in a Star Trek economic utopia it certainly is one in our contemporary times It is the very issue that defines political arguments do we become a social democracy or slash all social programs into a Keynesian market free for all The author is an advocate for the former But where the author could have used some imagination to think beyond logics of capitalism all he can say is how expensive things are and how we have to think about how to distribute and allocate resources His short introduction of GPS as a global common good is interesting but it just cracks the surface before he moves on to something else In fact that is a common tactic in his book he brings up a lot of things briefly then moves on before he has fully considered themOne thing he recognizes that I absolutely agree with that technology will bring us to a new world In fact as he recognizes somewhat it already has Agricultural jobs and now industrial manufacturing especially jobs are uickly waning as technology takes care of the drudgery for us But instead of prosperity for all the owners of the technology pocket the profit and live a life free from work and need while the workers must find their drudgery in wages elsewhere in other areas Instead why not bring up the proposals of the guaranteed basic income for example While it s still embedded in capitalist thinking it is an interesting way that a few governments have come up with to deconstruct the idea that we must work for a living What else is going on in the world right now that suggests a move toward a Star Trek economics He doesn t sayI also enjoyed his short discussion of early science fiction authors and their influence on the original Star Trek show I really do want to know about Asimov after reading this book and I ll try to delve into other authors of the time period as well Perhaps for this book to have been a success someone with an extensive economic theory background would have been able to look at failures of utopian models in history look at current trends surrounding capitalism and movement to and away from it to answer the authors final uestion how can we get to a world like Star Trek Unfortunately either the author s knowledge of economics and history psychology social sciences etc was inadeuate or he neglected to write about it This book reads like a meandering cobbled together undergraduate thesis rather than a coherent well edited book I wonder if the author could have improved it if he had sought traditional publishing where his ideas could have been critiued edited and re written As it stands I doubt it would be published conventionally without heavy editing But despite this review I did not hate the book I was just very very very disappointed I love Star Trek and I don t love it as the author disparages because it s an adventure in space with aliens and faster than light travel otherwise I d just be a Star Wars fan Sure those things are cool In fact it s in the encounters with other worlds that the characters in Star Trek are able to reconsider their highly held precepts and examine their history and their current ways of doings things and how they should act in the world Instead I love Star Trek because of its optimistic view on what the future of humanity could look like That we could rise above our difference and actually seek out new life and new civilizations so that we might delight in differences and new ways of doing things that we might delight in having our assumptions critiued That we might work together to create a world where national borders have no meaning and no matter where you are born you have access to the same resources so that poverty and hate and suffering are only something you read about in books Where we might live beyond money where we explore what it truly means to be human where we don t live our lives in the drudgery of trying to pay bills to meet our basic needs or be shackled to accumulating goods to feel like we are doing well in life Where education is freely shared and desperately striven for where improving our lives together is the highest occupation That s what I love about Star Trek That s what I want to explore in looking at the economics of Star Trek Will someone please write THAT book The Light In The Window the morals values and hard economics Three Entertainments that underpin Lissa the series’ ideal society and its sources of inspiration both inside and outside Lissa the science fiction canon After reading Red Sky At Sunrise this book you’ll be able Taken by the Alpha to answer
