Economics, aside from financial conventions is simply the application of energy, human and non-human, to the conversion of material into forms having utility or pleasure for humans. In nature these processes are automatic and simply flow—where nature abhors a vacuum. For example, we speak of the “balance of nature”, of homeostasis in physiology, the principle of sufficiency in engineering. Production and consumption are merely two sides of an equation and neither has any reason for existing without the other—there is no incentive to produce without a prospect of consumption and there is no possibility of consumption without production.
Money is an artificial human construct or system of accountancy and there is no reason automatically to assume that it reflects accurately the relationship between production and consumption. Our money or accountancy system should enable all available production factors to be mobilized as desired and all production to be accessible to the community simultaneously and dynamically as it is completed and becomes physically available. From a macro-economic standpoint the entire society of individuals should have access to the total production in any given production or costing cycle. This is simply a fulfillment of natural law. All organisms have an inherent right in natural law to draw sustenance from their environment. This reality involves no abstract or pseudo-moral considerations.
