Book Overview

Scarcity, is a powerful, yet often misunderstood principle. Much of its research is buried in academic journals, typically emphasizing economics over psychology. The Power of Scarcity (McGraw 2022) bridges that gap. With expertise in marketing and psychology, Weinstein reveals scarcity's psychological underpinnings, its deep influence on decisions and its ethical application. A blend of academic and practical insights, this book is a beacon for marketers seeking to harness scarcity's power.
