We all know the proverb about teaching someone to fish, but if there are no fish left, knowing how to catch them won\'t do you any good. And that\'s the position businesses are in today.

To survive in the long term, this book suggests that businesses need to make resource scarcity-the overfished ocean-their primary strategic consideration, not just a concern for their "green" division. Those managers who deeply understand and master this shift will be able to turn the new reality into a remarkable competitive advantage.
