Yes, that's the paradox.

Capitalism requires demand never be met in full,
for to do so would cause price to reach cost.

When price equals cost, profit equals zero.

Complete, un-throttled abundance cannot occur within Capitalism
because abundance destroys profit, yet profit is their measure of success.

Hunger is *needed* in any system requiring scarcity.

Trees heavily laden with Apples will not grow down every lane,
Until we devise a GNU system that grows within our own,
And is able to withstand the abundance we need.
