Scarcity : why having too little means so much

Books
We've all struggled with packing a suitcase with too many items and not enough time to do it. In 'Scarcity', two intellectual adventurers show us that this simple idea explains the most fundamental problems in all walks of life. Using the new science of scarcity, they explain why obesity is rampant; why people find it difficult to sleep when most sleep deprived; and why the lonely find it so hard to make friends.
