Scarcity is Constant in Our World, we just have to Leave with it
Scarcity is in our world and it is going nowhere. This is not the time to throw stones at me or shades because I really do know what I am saying (or maybe I do not know what I am saying). Where there is a value, there is a quantity and when it has a price it surely has to be scares. I guess the only free thing we have to ourselves in the world is air, don’t get me wrong, I did not say oxygen because the air we take in is not made of only oxygen but our body does the filtration taking out what we need and disposing the waste so don’t mistake my saying of air for oxygen more so, oxygen isn’t free, you can go ask at the hospital if it is free but the last I checked, it has a price and we will see that pure oxygen is as scare as going to the moon.
I want to say that human wants are unlimited and do expect to have all they can but then economics come in with demand and supply which then leads to scarcity directly or indirectly. Water is abundant on earth, but clean water has a price as it requires a lot of purification process and a lot of technological equipment were required to make it good for consumption which then means people have to pay for the clean water and when they are not paying for it, the water is being shut down. Sand could have been the easiest way to be rich as people could have packed a lot of sand and use it for their day to day buildings but then it needs to be scarce and so the government place rules restricting people from excavating the soil for any use except the government give authorization which means the person would be taxed for digging out the soil and the person would have to sell it for a price.
Time is also a scarce commodity which I have been asking myself for days if it has reduced or I am the one not managing it properly. The ability to learn is also very scarce as knowledge is often a scarce commodity. With scarcity, humans have been able to do a few things with limited resources and we have been able to utilize them properly. Humans are left with opportunity cost and they have to pick what they have to do and what they have to leave. You can’t live in a life of abundance, there will always be scarcity and it is meant to stay for life.
