  • Microecomonics (need to see if i got these right -

    1) I agree
    2) Economics studies how LIMITED resources are used to satisfy UNLIMITED wants. Given that this isnt one of your choices, I would go with c) to study the choices people make.
    3) I would go with c) we make choices because of scarcity; we cant have everything we want, so we have to make choices
    4) no no no, opportunity cost of government spending is measured in terms of the NEXT BEST alternative uses for that money.
    5) I agree
    6) I agree
    7) Hummm. Initially, I agreed. However, efficiency reduces scarcity but doesnt eliminate it. Second, equity (or inequity) is a normative concept; being efficient doesnt really address or relate to equity. Finally, societies goals is also an normative concept. Being efficient may improve the success rate on achieving societies goals, but societies goals is not the reason for being efficient. I wish none-of-the above was a possible answer.
    8) I agree
    9) I agree.
    10) I agree
