Modern technology can produce so many goods that even well paid workers have difficulty consuming them. Capitalism demands ever-increasing profits. This equates to ever-increasing consumption. When humans did not have enough to survive, this was good. However, consumption levels are now so absurd that we bare not really “consuming” what we produce. Our closets, garages, and storage rooms are full of things we do not use. We have multiple cars, motorcycles, boats, sporting equipment, electronics, and other toys, which, since we have so many, are, used only part of the time, if at all. Our “obsolete” computers that we can hardly give away still do the job practically as well as our new “cutting edge” ones; in the real world of limited supply, there are not enough resources for the entire world to continue the rapid expansion of consumption. Therefore, pure capitalism is bound to be impaled on one horn or the other with this consumption dilemma. In a world of diminishing resources, capitalism must eventually run out of gas, pardon the pun.
