Resource Scarcity

Is it enough to ensure people’s basic needs are met, or is a more egalitarian approach needed that tries to reduce inequality in access to resources? Does it make sense to think about equity of access to a particular resource (carbon permits, for example) or is it more helpful to think about overall wealth or income distribution and the entitlement to resources of all kinds that this carries with it?  CIC's research on the topic of resource scarity is led by Alex Evans, who as written extensively on the challenges of living in a more resource-scarce world.
