When addressing the issue raised by this question, keep in mind that choices involve tradeoffs and every choice has a cost. This is why economics comes in to play when you examine the relationship between economics and scarcity. Choices involve tradeoffs and every choice has a cost. Scarcity of means to satisfy given ends, is an almost ubiquitous condition of human nature. For instance, the time at our disposal is limited as there are only twenty-four hours in the day, and we have to choose between the different uses to which they may be put. Because people live in a world of scarcity, they cannot have all the time, money, possessions, and experiences they wish, neither can the society.

I am currently a coach for our new hire customer service representatives. The days are schedule overlaps with the other new hire class our desks are scarce We don't have enough desks for all of our reps much less the coaches to be able to do their work. We like to have assigned desk for our reps in their 7-week training class so they can have some type of normality and consistency. However, since our desks are scarce we have to move reps around when someone calls out so they have a place to sit. Us coaches have to use their normal work desks on the other side of the call center to log in and out. The scarcity of desks where we need them not only causes an inconvenience but it also causes inefficiencies for us coaches and the reps taking calls.
