Economia – the study of lack. Someone has to be lacking.
You cannot have a working economy without a flow of money. If you have an equilibrium the economy bankrupts. If you have an equilibrium you cannot have an economy. Money has to flow from poor to rich, rich to poor.
Mansa Musa (c1312-c1337) the ninth Mansa of Mali richest man in the world. Travelling through Egypt giving away his gold to every poor person he met. The value of gold dropped overnight nearly bankrupting the Egyptian economy.
An argument that someone has to lack can extend beyong the economy. Heirarchy is another system of lack. Someone is higher or lower in the pecking order: someone has less power and status than someone else higher up.
Human nature or Human design?
