2002-03: Surplus and Scarcity

Volume 10: 2001-2002

Volume 10: 2001-2002What does it mean to live a life of surplus amidst a world of scarcity, or a life of scarcity amidst the unfathomable worlds of surplus? At the heart of most environmental controversies, the relationship between scarcity and surplus will undoubtedly emerge. How much is enough, and how are so many rendered wanting in a world with such bounty? While scarcities of cropland, forests, water, and other renewable resources are felt around the world, concentrations of surplus often rest in the hands of a few. What should be done? Such controversies are at once ecological, political, social, and psychological.
