Is Scientific Knowledge
an Inexhaustible Economic Resource?

David Miller


Some comments on R. S. Percival, `The Metaphysics of Scarcity: Popper's World 3 and the Theory of Finite Resources' (Percival 1996). Section 1 introduces and explains the central problem. Section 2 investigates in some detail the logical theorem presented by Percival in §45, on which much of his argument depends, and questions its significance and applicability. Section 3 offers an alternative explanation of the possibility of unlimited technological progress.
