Abundance is a community arts performance project gathering stories and exploring ways that people of different classes, races and ages negotiate economics in their daily lives.
Abundance is being developed in a similar way to Pottenger's OBIE award-winning project City Water Tunnel #3, which focused on the construction of a 64 mile long water tunnel as deep as the Chrysler Building is high, which will eventually carry water to nine million New Yorkers.
Abundance allows both the participants and audiences to step away from their understandable assumptions, resentments, confusions and fears and isolation, to imagine together economic solutions that work for everyone.

 The Long Tail: The Tragically Neglected Economics of Abundance
Indeed, the economics of abundance is almost exclusively the domain of extropians, a few other transhumanists, and science fiction writers.
And the term abundance might indeed move the economy to new bottlenecks, scarcities and restrictions, meaning the old theories might still be relevant.
The end result of that exercise may be an abundance of products (and consequently an abundance of choice) but that does not argue against the basic reality that factors of production are scarce and choices need to be made in allocating scarce resources for various (often conflicting) purposes.

 Sustainable Economics, Effective Conservation Uses Durability
There's no law against planning for inheritance by keeping a stable family size, or against using durability as the basis for real conservation, but before people can adopt low-consumption lives of abundance, we must view unearned income as our right, rather than as a benefit.
Otherwise the need to keep all human labor busy with paid work will make sustainable economics impossible.
Most automation can be designed to operate with low energy consumption, and without the need to transport many workers to and from work the economy could operate very well on a fraction of the present energy consumption.

 Legal Theory Blog
Our confidence in the claim that there are relative values is thus greater than our confidence in big 'C' consequentialism's hypothesis that all values are neutral, notwithstanding the fact that that hypothesis purchases an abundance of the heoretical virtue of simplicity.
A virtue politics might begin with the idea that the goal of the state should be the establishment of the conditions for the development of human excellence.
Obviously, virtue ethics has something to do with virtue, which in this context is closely related in meaning to the English word "excellence," the Latin "virtu," and the Greek, "arete." Sometimes "virtue ethics" is also called "aretaic moral theory," using the adjective form of the Greek word for virtue.

 Eastern Economic Journal: Alternative Principles of Economics
It challenges the idea that economics deals with scarcity; on the contrary, Bober suggests that the world we live in today is a world of abundance and that economics should recognize this reality.
All view economics as a science, albeit a young science; all endorse market activity as an efficient means of raising standards of living; but all three qualify their enthusiasm for markets with the recognition that there is an important role for government to play in the economy.
Principles of Political Economy by John Stuart Mill, Principles of Economics by Alfred Marshall, and Economics by Paul Samuelson, each shaped a generation of students.

 Objectivism Online Forum -> Economics Without Material Scarcity
My point was, when dealing with a material medium of exchange, relative scarcity (as opposed to abundance) is one of the prime factors which makes a physical commodity a good currency.
And, in a civilization in which material abundance is fairly universal, there would not appear to be one or a few physical materials which would fit the requirements for a good physical currency.
Every age so far has had its own relative material scarcities, and it might turn out that nano-manufacturing certain materials is more difficult, or requires more energy because of the nature of the atomic bonds involved, or whatever (we will probably still not be able to make gold in any significant quantity - pesky element).

 Bat Project
Given the importance of coffee in terms of land use and economics, understanding the impacts of farming methods on biodiversity is essential.
Calvo and Blake (1998) compared diversity and abundance of resident and migrant birds in two shade coffee plantations that differed in their farming practices: one farm represented a traditional polyculture shade farm and the other a newer, monoculture shade plantation.
They found that both kinds of plantations supported many resident and migrant birds, but that bird abundance and diversity were significantly greater (during both wet and dry seasons) on the traditional farm.

 Wealth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The shift from the analysis of an individual's wealth to the concept of an aggregation of all men is implied in the concepts of political economy and then economics.
Wealth is an abundance of items of economic value, or the state of controlling or possessing such items, and encompasses money, real estate and personal property.
An entire lack of any kind of wealth may constitute poverty, although the opposite of poverty may be sufficiency (in terms of food, shelter, education and healthcare) rather than the abundance implied by wealth.

 Manageability - Artificial Scarcity, Garbage Collection and the Long Tail
The whole of economics is based on demand exceeding supply, that is of scarcity.
Now, in a market of obvious abundance, one strategy that I've stumbled upon is that of creating scarcity by artificial means.
Well, for starters the classic definition of economics is "the science of choice under scarcity".

 Commentary: Joseph Schumpeter and the moral economy
This is also true in the world of economics; certain economic conditions produce an abundance of goods and services, and moral people attempt to determine whether these arrangements respect the human dignity and God-given rights of those involved.
Plus, Schumpeter did unintentionally recognize the dangers of disassociating human morality from economics when he predicted that capitalism would fall due to business and government bureaucracy/corruption that can occur in the free market.
As Lord Acton wrote, "Despotic power is always accompanied by the corruption of morality." That is justification enough to instill ethics and morality in our business leaders, government officials, and the general populace.

I think the whole sentence should be replaced by an example of a more recognized difference between the two countries, or a discussion on why Canada is a salad and America a pot (personally I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a large difference between the two countries).

Vegetarianism is practiced for numerous reasons, including health, ecological and religious concerns, dislike of meat, compassion for animals, belief in nonviolence and economics.
While there are an abundance of arguments for vegetarianism based on animal rights and environmental concerns, the clearest reason that one might change one's diet is simply for the radical health benefits associated with alternative diets.
British vegetarians and vegans have lower but stable plasma concentrations of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) compared to their meat-eating compatriots, and the length of time a consumer adheres to a vegetarian diet has no impact on omega-3 levels, finds a new study from the University of Oxford.

Mao, who knew absolutely nothing about either technology or economics, got it into his head that China could be remade into a modern industrial power, surpassing both the United States and the Soviet Union, through sheer determination and physical effort.
When Mao or any of the other party leaders traveled around the countryside to see for themselves what the actual conditions were like, the local party officials would line the roads with temporarily replanted crops, to give the appearance of abundance.
Knowing nothing about agriculture, Mao insisted that all the food China needed could be produced in less time on a fraction of the land then under cultivation.
