First Law of Thermodynamics: Energy can be changed from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed. The total amount of energy and matter in the Universe remains constant, merely changing from one form to another.

Wealth, therefore, which is a symbolic representation of consumed energy, cannot be created. What is considered to be wealth can be changed, but the amount of energy and matter remains constant and finite as the one becomes the other.
