Harvard Professor Sendhil
one of the leading economists in the field of behavioral economics, has
recently released a new book with Princeton cognitive psychologist
Professor Eldar Shafir entitled *Scarcity: Why Having Too Little Means So
Much <http://sc.arcity.co/index.html>*.

Their book examines the psychology of scarcity and the scarcity mindset
that narrows perspective and perpetuates lack through the limiting of one's
options.  This is an important new work that addresses the psychology
around poverty and how people's minds work differently when they feel they
lack something.  The results of their research show empirically that the
feeling of scarcity places very real limits on what people are able to see,
and the authors offer strategic interventions as behavioral solutions to
help break these cycles that lead to the scarcity mindset.
