"To all these people - from academia and journalism, as well as the [American] middle class themselves - it apparently seemed strange somehow that there should be such a thing as scarcity and that this should imply a need for both productive efforts on their part and personal responsibility in spending. Yet nothing has been more pervasive in the history of the human race than scarcity and all the requirements for economizing that go with scarcity." - from Sowell's Basic Economics.
