In a nutshell: Economics, economies and economic theory have all been based on economics of scarcity.

That is, scarcity drives the “laws” of economics. A number of things have hit the radar over the last few months that are of note:

Chris Anderson (author of “The Long Tail”): The Economics of Abundance – The speech that Anderson made at Pop!Tech this year.

Mike Masnick: The Scarcity Myth

Nick Carr: Knockoffs roil Second Life - A great example of what happens when one tries to force-fit an economic model based on scarcity into an environment where information is free.

David Hornik: Tough Choices
