So you mean the rich get richer because since they own the capital, labor and production and there's less of it to go around, then people will pay more for it. And the poor get poorer because since there are plenty of poor offering exactly the same man hours, the cost of labor is relatively less? How is this different from the status quo? If I was in charge why the hell would I want to grow production at exactly the same rate (or more) than population growth? I want my things to be scarce. I think real economics might not work exactly the way you think it does, when government and special interests get involved in the market.
