Paradox of value
  • Adam Smith asked:
  • Why is it that sometimes needs are less valuable than wants? Shouldn’t water be more valuable than diamonds?
paradox of value aka the diamond water paradox
Paradox of Value(aka the diamond–water paradox)
  • the apparent contradiction that, although water is on the whole more useful, in terms of survival, than diamonds, diamonds command a higher price in the market.

The 20 percent of the world’s people who live in the wealthiest nations consume 86 percent of the world’s goods and services. The 20 percent who live in the poorest nations consume just 1.3 percent.

The U.S. Consumer

The United States, with less than 5 % of the global population, uses about a quarter of the world’s fossil fuel resources—burning up nearly 25 % of the coal, 26 % of the oil, and 27 % of the world’s natural gas.

As of 2003, the U.S. had more private cars than licensed drivers, and gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles were among the best-selling vehicles.

New houses in the U.S. were 38 % bigger in 2002 than in 1975, despite having fewer people per household on average.

Why might a wealthy society not have as much economic staying power as another wealthy society with a highly skilled labor force?

the circular flow of economic activity
The Circular Flow of Economic Activity

Markets are locations/mechanisms for buyers and sellers to trade. They are classified as local, regional, national, global, and cyberspace. 

A factor market is where people earn their incomes. Factor markets center on the four factors of production: land, capital, labor, and entrepreneurs. 

A product market is where people use their income to buy from producers. Product markets center on goods and services.

productivity and economic growth
Productivity and Economic Growth
  • Productivity is a measure of the amount of output produced by the amount of inputs within a certain time. Productivity increases with efficient use of scarce resources. 

Specialization and division of labor may improve productivity because they lead to more proficiency (and greater economic interdependence).

productivity and economic growth1
Productivity and Economic Growth
  • Investing in human capital improves productivity because when people’s skills, abilities, health, and motivation advance, productivity increases. 

Economic growth depends on high productivity. Yet, an economy’s productivity may be affected by its interdependence—reliance on others and their reliance on us to provide goods and services.

Introduction

Section 3

The process of making a choice is not always easy.

Because resources are scarce, consumers need to make wise choices.

To become a good decision maker, you need to know how to identify the problem and then analyze your alternatives.

Finally, you have to make your choice in a way that carefully considers the costs and benefits of each possibility.

  • Economists reward their greatest for breakthrough discoveries. The 1999 Nobel Prize for Economics went to Robert A. Mundell, a Canadian economist at New York’s Columbia University, for his career-long work in international currency exchange rates, vital in today’s global marketplace. The prize is worth a million dollars in U.S. currency.

Trade-Offs and Opportunity Cost

Trade-offs are the alternative choices people face in making an economic decision. A decision-making grid lists the advantages and disadvantages of each choice. 

Opportunity cost is the cost of the next best alternative among a person’s choices. The opportunity cost is the money, time, or resources a person gives up, or sacrifices, to make his final choice.

production possibilities
Production Possibilities
  • The production possibilities frontier diagram illustrates the concept of opportunity cost. It shows the combinations of goods and/or services that can be produced when all productive resources are used. The line on the graph represents the full potential—the frontier—when the economy employs all of these productive resources.

Identifying possible alternatives allows an economy to examine how it can best put its limited resources into production.

production possibilities cont
Production Possibilities (cont.)
  • Considering different ways to fully employ its resources allows an economy to analyze the combination of goods and services that leads to maximum output. 

An economy pays a high cost if any of it resources are idle. It cannot produce on its frontier and it will fail to reach its full production potential. 

Economic growth made possible by more resources, a larger labor force, or increased productivity causes a new frontier for the economy.

slide27

Thinking Like an Economist

Building simple models helps economists analyze or describe actual economic situations.

Cost-benefit analysis helps economists evaluate alternatives by looking at each choice’s cost and benefit.

Taking small, incremental steps in implementing an economic decision helps economists test whether the estimated cost of the decision was correct.
