One of the basic premises of the New Z-Land Project is that we work towards having all of the Earth's resources as the common heritage of all of the world's people. Anything less will simply result in a continuation of the same catalogue of problems inherent in the present system.
The New Z-Land Project is to be a protoype, experimental community. This experimental community will be offered as a service to experience eco-friendly living while enjoying the luxury of the latest technologies. Due to the current conflict of interests around the world, this project can only cater to those who would like to experience a Resource Sharing Society.
A Resource Sharing Society correctly implemented would give the world much cleaner, safer living capabilities with all essential necessities being available to all persons. By applying advanced technology we can intelligently manage our resources to use surplus materials within the carrying capacity of the earth, to make goods and automated services for everbody. Researching renewable sources of energy, we will design a safe energy-efficient city and community. Eventually this will lead to advanced transportation systems, automated manufacturing and computerized control systems. Most importantly, this method will generate a new incentive system based on human wellbeing and environmental concerns thanks to heavy consideration on education systems and social development programs.
Amazing things tend to happen when humans collaborate. If we put aside our nationalistic tendencies and focus on a clear, well defined objective void of superficial competition, the result is Wikipedia, the Human Genome Project, and the Large Hadron Collider to name just a few. These initiatives serve as proof that we as a species can in fact work together successfully. The NZP hopes one day to be listed amongst such distinguished company. If for only a brief shining moment, the NZP is a meeting place for people with an educated passion.

There are Free Lunches Statement of Intentions
There are Free Lunches: Behavioral Clues to Live Happy in the Economic World is a blog that intends to present updated and relevant information about the "hidden" and only recently uncovered dimensions of the economic science: the behavioral factors. With this blog we intend to promote in Europe and in the rest of the World, the top research articles and perspectives on behavioral economics, decision making, consumer behavior, and general behavioral science. We aim to be followed by journalists, academics, managers, civil servants, and everyone who wishes to improve their daily interaction with the economic world and consequently, their lives' happiness.
