I had asked this question earlier and Ms. Sue had helped me with one. I have tried the other two...will you please let me know if I'm on the right track???? Thank you


Explain how each of the following people would talk about scarcity and trade-offs.
a) The President of the United States:In these days of recession, people are buying less cars. The resources are being wasted. In this case, I have decided to close some of the car producing factories. It is one of the trade-offs to consume fuel as well although I know many people get laid off while doing so.

b) The leader of a developing nation: Money has become so scarce. We have stopped some of the constructions that is not necessary at this time. It is one of our trade-offs.

c) A U.S. citizen whose income is in the top one percent: I can not think of any for this one

d) A U.S. citizen whose income is in the bottom five percent: (Ms. Sue had answered this one) Money is so scarce I rarely have two ten-dollar bills at a time. We'd like to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, but they're expensive and don't fill us up like pasta and bread do. That's just one of our tradeoffs so that I can pay for my asthmatic son's asthma medication.

    Ami:

    Scarcity is all around us and affects many of the decisions we make, including the super-rich. For example, leisure time is often scarce for high income folks. So, vacationing in the Bahamas means not vacationing in the Swiss Alps. Going to the theater might mean not going to a baseball game. etc.
