Scarcity
The basic economic problem that arises because people have unlimited wants but resources are limited.
    
Due to scarcity, various economic decisions must be made to allocate resources efficiently.
    
When we talk of scarcity within an economic context, it refers to limited resources, not a lack of riches. These resources are the inputs of production: land, labor and capital.
    
People must make choices between different items because the resources necessary to fulfill their wants are limited. These decisions are made by giving up (trading off) one want to satisfy another.
