4. Is there enough for all?

Our approach to sharing what we find and our fears of there not being enough are not new. David Ricardo effectively described aspects of sharing in the form of economic rent and the law of diminishing returns. Thomas Malthus presented a mathematical theory to prove starvation for the masses was inevitable. These ideas are examined alongside some consideration of those actions human beings are taking which lead to greater inequity and famines.
