"The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it."
Tell that to the developers of ZFS. As I recall, 128 bits is more than enough to individualize all matter in the known universe. Plus if those words really were true, explain gluts (which HAVE occurred in the past).
Oh, and PS. Finish the quote: "The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics."
