TOPIC: Scarcity captures the mind-it changes how we think
KEY POINTS: Scarcity does something to our mental processor. By constantly loading the mind with other processes, it leaves less “mind” for the task at hand. Scarcity directly reduces what we call bandwidth—not a person’s inherent capacity for thinking and understanding but how much of that capacity is currently available for use.
BENEFIT OF REVIEWING THIS MATERIAL:Scarcity is not just a physical constraint, It is a mindset.

But you can be cleansed of your poorness, praise the lord.
How do you take a scarce resource and drive the price DOWN? Today gas prices for our “last ounce” of oil average under $2.00 a gallon across the US – Feb 17, 2016.
The myth of the Scarcity of oil. It’s not a “fossil fuel”. This should be clear to you by now.
Remember the gas lines in the 1970’s and we were told that we would run out of oil in 20 years? Any chance that public opinion is being manipulated for money?
