A new monetary system and paradigm is the answer, something that provides the necessities of life (home, food, water, schooling, etc) for FREE TO ALL. Then, anything else that is not nessicary (ie; eating out, movies, alcohol, clubs, etc) would have to be earned. I know it sounds impossible but if certain technologies were released (which I am sure the government has) we would be able to easily do this on a GLOBAL SCALE. Now lets assume there is no ZPE technology being hidden by the government, well then IMO we should still try to modify the current system where it is balanced as far as needs go, we can work on the technology to expand it. But I just do not see any incentive system for livening needs EVER being successful in the long run, due to the very things you have already mentioned.
