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
