Re: A country without Money how it's work?

Iain M. Banks covers what an evolved post-scarcity society might be like in his Culture series. An article discussing it is here:

..and by the man himself here:

I don't think Star Trek would be much different, though of course they actually play the possibilities quite conservatively.
