The problem with the law of scarcity

The real problem with the law of scarcity is in the difference between the word "want" and the word "need".  God provided us with a planet that has all the natural resources we need to feed, clothe, and shelter 80 billion people, if we work for it and distribute those goods fairly and equitably.  And most importantly, if we distribute the work equitably.

There can never be enough for want however- want is psychological, and the infinity of human want is greater than the infinity of God himself.
