  • Card 6 / 8:
    Education provides both private benefits to those who receive it and broader social benefits for the economy as a whole. Think about the types of policies a government can follow to address the issue of positive spillovers in technology and then suggest a parallel set of policies that governments could follow for addressing positive externalities in education.

    Government programs that either pay for education directly or that provide loans or reduced tax payments for education could create positive spillovers. A city might allow its businesses to form a group that would coordinate business efforts with schools and local colleges and universities—allowing students to obtain real-world experience in their chosen fields and providing businesses with enthusiastic, trained workers.

explain the basic economic concept using ppc ?
Nurul Reply
scarcity can be represented by imagining a country producing only 2 goods and the resources to do so are fixed, hence a choice must be made and how to divide the limited resources between the two goods. you can choose any combination of the two goods that fall directly on the curve which represents
maximum efficiency and the highest possible output at this point in time. if you choose to not utilize all the resources then you will be inefficient (not to your best ability) and produce below the curve. however if you have increases in technology or find new resources you can shift the curve out

why is economics different from pure science...
Jacque Reply
it's because the methodology is scientific in nature,for example we have economics in geography,history,but with pure science it deal with the nature..
science uses logic to study and systematic method and economic uses practical methods to deal with d current economic scenario
but it is said in general that it is a science ...why?
because it only deals with human behavior
Economics is a science since it use some scientific methods but not as pure science that's why it's refers as social science
Mister Kay. Economics is a (Social) Science. It deals with human beings and uses a systematic and logical body of theories, laws and assumptions to study and interpret human behaviour in the face of choice making in an environment where resources are naturally scarce, insufficient or unavailable.
economics is considered different from the pure sciences such as chemistry and physics for the simple fact that it can't be isolated in a lab or test tube and studied. in economics we can't control all the variables and study the effect of the outcome of tweaking just one variable.
hence it's not a perfect science. to make up for this we use the assumption of ceterius paribus or holding all else constant. In the real world it's dynamic and we can't isolate for eg a change in income on demand holding all else constant (prices of goods, etc)
What is the relationship between quantity demanded and quantity supplied at equilibrium? What is the relationship when there is a shortage? What is the relationship when there is a surplus?
Sualihu Reply
When QS greater than QD, it costed the price to drop
equilibrium is the market price
at equilibrium, demand meets supply, thus a right price , good enough to ensure no waste of supply or shortage of demand
The relationship between quantity demanded and quantity supplied at equilibrium is that there is satisfaction between supply and demand. Prices increases when there is increased in demand and vice versa.
