IIa. Central Problem of Economics

The central economic problem
Is scarcity

Of

red lights / orange fruits / yellow trees / green grass / blue skies / indigo birds / violet blood

Where there
Are unlimited human wants

Like a

black Ford × white tie × black Mont Blanc × white dress × black Chanel × white shirt × black Rolex

And there
Are limited resources

For we have

No (time + ideas + belief + direction + thoughts + knowledge + imagination)
