When people become, the inhabitants of all different planets, they become very much perturbed on account of these demonic . . . in this Kali-yuga especially, the demons are so large in number that people are actually in harassment. Every year, they are presenting taxation bill. And wherefrom the taxation will come? The taxation will come from your pocket and my pocket. They will charge income tax, and the storekeepers will increase the value of commodity. So you have to pay.

So you are . . . we are complaining, "Oh, the things are going high price." But why? Because the demons are levying taxes. The . . . it is not the scarcity of goods. There is sufficient commodity. Sufficient. But they have made a economic plan. Just like in your country, the government said that, "You don't produce more." Why? If one can produce . . . Kṛṣṇa has given food.

But in order to keep the balance of price, they say: "Don't produce." Why not produce? So many people are, they are . . . if actually we produce foodstuff in the ordinary way, then we can produce foodstuff so much that ten times of the whole population of the world can be fed. Ten times. There is no question of scarcity or poverty. There is no question. We create. These demons, they create.
