Re: [ox-en] Commons in a taxonomy of goods

If you have 5 apples and 6 persons, and every person want an apple
you can say that apples are scarce

No, the availability of apples may be limited at one time at a location.
Limitedness and scarcity are two different things. If you need more
apples, then more apples can be produced to overcome current
limitations. However, if you produce apples as commodities, then they
are scarce and none of the 6 persons wanting apples get one of the
million apples being produced unless they exchange them with money.
Scarcity is a precondition of being a commodity, thus a social form of
products being produced as commodities.

so you need people and apples, its a social problem

That's what I say: The way of production is a social (societal)

This is like saying that scarcity is always by design, but this would not be
true for, say, something where their are physical limits to the production
of the resource.  Is there another word for that?  Or is it just a hard
limit instead of scarcity?

but I do not understand what this can mean in terms off clasical
goods clasification for you

Classical goods classification is inappropriate, as shown. They mix
socially produced with natural properties.
