A thoughtful post from my friend which resonated with me this morning as I read it. It is not our needs that drive scarcity, it is our wants . . .
There is a walk I like to take, past a natural birdbath hewn in a stone face,
where querulous Musk Lorikeets and Rainbow Lorikeets argue over bathing rights.
It makes me think of my son’s Economics notes:
“Economics is the study of scarcity. …
Resources are not few, but relative to wants they are scarce.”
If there is enough for everyone, why do we still argue?
