Economics EOC review 2015
Transcript of Economics EOC review 2015
Review of the concepts and standards!
SSEF1 -- Explain why limited productive resources and unlimited wants result in scarcity, opportunity costs, and tradeoffs for individuals, businesses, and governments.
SSEF2 Give examples of how rational decision making entails comparing the
marginal benefits and the marginal costs of an action.
Compare and contrast different
economic systems and explain how they answer the three
basic economic questions of
what to produce,
how to produce,
and for whom to produce.
SSEF5 The student will describe the roles of government in a market economy.
Define and give examples of productive resources
(factors of production)
What does efficiency mean and why is it important?
What is specialization? Give an example.
OPPORTUNITY COST =
the best alternative given up when individuals, businesses, and governments confront scarcity by making choices.
we can't make more water... so we have to make choices
LAND -- natural resources
ex: water, oil, trees
LABOR - human resources/workers
ex: cook, cashier, teacher
ENTREPRENEURSHIP - person who takes the risk and combines the land, labor, and capital
CAPITAL - tools (physical) or knowledge/skills (human)
Which example of productive resources is matched correctly?
A) land and surgeon
B) capital and oil rig
C) labor and telephone wire
D) entrepreneurship and rice field
Katie decided to pay for a piano lesson instead of going to a movie with her friends. What is her opportunity cost?
A) learning how to play the piano
B) the $10
C) seeing the movie with her friends
D) a new shirt from Rue 21
What is a rational decision?
Marginal = additional
you always want your benefits to exceed your costs...
Going to Six Flags costs $40, but the benefit is 8 hours of roller coaster FUN.... benefits are greater than the cost!
In this production possibilities graph, what MIGHT cause the movement from line 1 to line 3?
A) increased demand for basketballs
B) a shortage of needed raw materials
C)an increase in the number of workers
D) increased efficiency because of new whoopee cushion technology
Which point on the production possibilities curve could represent a situation in which there was a scarcity of materials needed to make products X and Y?
what does a point like X signify?
point of efficiency
if you make 375 tractors and 150 food at point W, what happens if you move to point Y? WHAT DO YOU LOSE??
Increase in resources or technology ... move to the right
decrease in technology or resources... move to the left
Command - Total government control

Define the command, market, and mixed economic systems with regards to what, how and for whom to produce.

- you choose
How does government regulation and deregulation affect consumers and
Why does the government provide public goods and services, redistribute income, protect property rights, and resolve market failures?

SSEF6 Explain how productivity, economic growth, and future standards of
living are influenced by investment in factories, machinery, new technology, and the health,
education, and training of people.
Define productivity: relationship of inputs to outputs
When investing in resources and technology ... how is productivity affected?

What is equilibrium? llustrate on a graph how supply and demand determine equilibrium price and quantity.
What is the role of buyers and sellers in determining market clearing price?
as price increases, quantity demanded decreases
as price increases, quantity supplied increases
people want it cheaper,
companies want to sell for more.
we don't want there to be too few or too many...
Draw on a graph how price floors create surpluses and price ceilings create
c. Define price elasticity of demand and supply.
