the "wolf/Deer" analogy is fun and all, but generally wrong. The apex predator doesn't lead the collapse, it`s another population that is wiped out by a bad winter or a rampant disease. The author wants that mental image of the rich predatory wolves wiping out the poor, defenseless deer. It`s a ploy for the uneducated.

are among the top 10% on earth. If we have $109 each, we have more than the Zimbabwean finance ministry reported that they had in 2013, they only had $217 in their treasury. Real poverty exists, but creating waste in our markets, I just don't believe it helps the situation. I totally take your point though.

My family has just got here, so I need to go but I promise I will respond to any of your questions. I don`t know all the answers but I can tell you what my textbooks tell me.

Before I go I just want to say you have made a real impact on me with your temperament, it`s a real testament to your intelligence and character, I will remember you for it, kudos.

@Musuko42: Ok I'm running out of time but I`ll try to answer you I`ll be back to this post later so check in with it if I stop.

When I use the word "artificial" it is meant to describe an outside force taking control of the market to force it in a way that it does not intend to go "naturally" or at the point of equilibrium where supply and demand meet.


I take your point about they spend more on charity. But the point of a market is not charity it is running a market to the maximum efficiency. Charity is more of a individual choice, although at least in America we offer tax incentives to make the rich contribute to charity. That is often why we are the most charitable, although we like to attribute it to our character, it`s how our tax laws are written.

Yet the same could be said about you and I. We both are far richer than most people in this world. We

Back on point...

If our goal is to end hunger then we need to look at who is hungry and how we can get the largest number of people fed. This issue has to do with politics, not wealth redistribution, we produce enough food to feed the world. How do we get the food to people, with out killing their incentive, or simply helping the governments that are starving them.

Ok now Musuko42 sorry I took so long.
