Three Economic Questions

  • What are the three economic questions that need to be answered by a society?

    • What goods and services should be produced?

      • All production costs come at an opportunity cost.

  • How should these goods and services be produced?

  • Who consumes these goods and services?

    • Factor payments-the income people received for supplying the factors of production.

    • How much should we pay the owners of the factors of production?

  • How do the people pictured answer those 3 questions?


  • What is a Mind Map?

    • It’s an expression of radiant thinking which refers to associative thought processes that connect to a central point

    • Main themes of the subject radiate from the central image as branches


    Advantages of Mind Mapping vs. linear note-taking

    • Time saved by noting and reading only relevant words

    • Time saved reviewing Mind Map notes vs. linear notes

    • Essential key words made more easily discernable


    Examples of mind maps

    http://hdysie.blogspot.com/2012_11_01_archive.html


    • Essential key words made more easily discernable

    • Recall of essential key words is improved

    • Clear and appropriate associations made between key words

    • Concentration on real issues enhanced


    • Our brains find it easier to remember visually stimulating, multi-colored, multi-dimensional Mind Maps

    • The Mind Map works in harmony with the brain’s desire for completion or wholeness

    • Mind maps make our brains more alert and receptive


    Tips for students

    • Use a central image

    • Use images throughout Mind Map

    • Use color

    • Organize and use appropriate spacing

    • Use arrows to make connections

    • Use codes


    • Print all words (printing encourages brevity)

    • Print key words on lines (helps with organization

    • Develop a personal style


    Key terms/concepts to include

    Economic Systems (in center)

    • 3 economic questions that all systems answer

    • Broad social goals (efficiency, equity, freedom, growth, security, stability) that all systems try to attain

    • Market Economy (free market)

    • Command Economy (centrally planned)

    • Traditional Economy

    • Mixed Economy

    • Communism, Socialism, Capitalism will be included into one of the economies above (read to figure it out!)

    • Chapter 2, pages 23-44
