Economics Of Abundance

Almost all markets in history have been based on rules for allocating scarce resources (e.g. food, land, energy).

Not every market has been based on scarcity, there is the occasional Gift Economy. Which might hold lessons for us. But I don't think we can achieve such a situation for a significant number of people. And there may be certain rules in those situations (e.g. no moving between tribes) that we wouldn't want to apply.

is this the New New Economy?
