Product Description
When there’s not enough for you and not enough for me
When we don’t have enough,there’s a scarcity
We have to make choices every,everyday
between this and that, in our work and our play
‘cause when we don’t have enough there’s a scarcity

When things are scarce, we have to make choices. If the market doesn't have strawberries, you have to decide if you really want strawberries. If you do, then you will have to travel to different markets to try to find some strawberries. If you don't find any strawberries anywhere, then you will have to go without. Scarcity has forced you to go without strawberries.

Scarcity can be a powerful thing. It can force you to make difficult choices. It can force you to go without. It can force you to pay more than you wanted to. It can force you to look elsewhere for the thing you want. The next time you discover that something you want isn't available, remember the idea of scarcity. What choice will you make?
