scarcity refers to lack of desired quantity of something. The scarcity in economics rise due to the fact that the humans have unlimited desires but only limited resources. This results in a decision to be made on how should the resources be allocated between various possible alternatives. The branch of economics helps answers the question of effectively allocating scarce resources for meeting the unending human demands. It helps answers the questions of what to produce, how to produce and for whom to produce.

Hi WanjiraThe idea around scarcity is that there are x amount of needs and wants in the economy from consumers, but only limited resources. Scarcity is the concept that there are unlimited needs and wants and an insufficient amount of resources to fulfill these. Hope this helps :)

scarcity refers to the condition of insufficiency where the human beings are incapable to full fill their wants in sufficient manner. In other words, it is a situation of fewer resources in comparison to unlimited human wants. Human wants are unlimited. we may satisfy some of our wants but soon new wants arise. It is impossible to produce goods and services so as to satisfy all wants of people. Thus scarcity explains the relationship between limited resources and unlimited wants and the problem there in.

Scarcity refers to the relationship between the wants and needs. Individuals limitless needs and wants must be suited to the available resources in the market in order to accomodate it. However, if the resources cannot accomodate the necessity of the people in a specific town, then scarcity is already in.

What human wants in life is happiness but the things which will give him happiness aren't free and the resources he has to pay for them aren't enough hence the subject of economics focused on giving man a means or formula for making best choice or option in such a way that his limited resources can help him achieve happiness. Resources include time, money, skill knowledge, and anything he can trade for what he desires to achieve happiness
