Excess economicus

If you think of it critically, there is no scarcity in the world. What many experience as scarcity or disadvantage is, to a large extent, the human system’s way of getting rid of extras that it produces.

I know it may sound disorienting but if you look at the world as an organism and not an organization, you’ll understand how we only live and work to produce surpluses.

And so, wars, pandemics, shareholder value, world poverty, corporate profits and almost every other concept in the world are tied to the human nature of excess, and how we either expend or dispose of this excess. And because these concepts are always on the rise, scarcity should not be the basis of economic thought, excess is.
