Solange50125

Suppose that Solange and Jay-Z could each make either New York–style pizza or Philly cheesesteaks. Given an eight-hour workday, which of the following would permit them to consume outside their respective production possibilities frontiers (PPFs)?

specialization and trade

a decrease in technology

an “Empire State” of mind

a decrease in resources

efficient use of all their productive resources


Greater investment in capital goods today leads to

scarcity.

less opportunity cost.

greater growth in the production possibilities frontier (PPF) in the future.

the end of scarcity.

greater consumption today.


Use these production possibilities frontier (PPF) curves, which compare the ancient production of agricultural products to art and literature, to answer the following questions.
