520    In the blockbuster tradition of  Freakonomics , a Harvard 
       economist and a Princeton psychology professor team up to 
       offer a surprising and empowering new way to look at 
       everyday life, presenting a paradigm-challenging 
       examination of how scarcity-and our flawed responses to it
       -shapes our lives, our society, and our culture. Why do 
       successful people get things done at the last minute? Why 
       does poverty persist? Why do organizations get stuck 
       firefighting? Why do the lonely find it hard to make 
       friends? These questions seem unconnected, yet Sendhil 
       Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir show that they are all are 
       examples of a mindset produced by scarcity.   Drawing on 
       cutting-edge research from behavioral science and 
       economics, Mullainathan and Shafir show that scarcity 
       creates a similar psychology for everyone struggling to 
       manage with less than they need. Busy people fail to 
       manage their time efficiently for the same reasons the 
       poor and those maxed out on credit cards fail to manage 
       their money. The dynamics of scarcity reveal why dieters 
       find it hard to resist temptation, why students and busy 
       executives mismanage their time, and why sugarcane farmers
       are smarter after harvest than before. Once we start 
       thinking in terms of scarcity and the strategies it 
       imposes, the problems of modern life come into sharper
