Capitalism is a theory of imbalances. Free market competition is a theory of natural resource balancing.

I say natural resource balancing because:
a) everything is natural ultimately. We are spring from nature, go back to nature, are products of nature.
We can call our products – which are second-order (the products of products) “artificial” if we like to distinguish their origin as products of products of nature, rather than products of nature, but they’re still natural ultimately.
b) life tends towards homeostasis. Homeostasis is always moving and shifting but it “tends towards” an “actively attempting to form a balanced state” state.
c) I see no reason our commerce can not be of the same natural (second order) order.
