SILVER CERTIFICATE: Paper currency issued by the U. S. Treasury from 1878 until the 1960s that could be exchanged for an equal value of silver. An occasional silver certificate will pop up in circulation, but for the most part they have been relegated to the storage vaults of collectors and have been replaced by Federal Reserve notes as the nation's paper money.

Lesson 4: Production Possibilities | Unit 4: Analysis Page: 17 of 24

Topic: Resource Quantity and Quality <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Three ways to increase resource quantity.
  • Labor: Labor increases through (1) natural population growth, (2) immigration from other nations, and (3) more participation and fewer nonworkers.
  • Capital: The key to getting more capital is investment, giving up satisfaction today to get capital tomorrow.
  • Materials: The key to increasing their quantity is exploration. Exploration is best illustrated by digging or drilling into the Earth's crust in search of mineral or fossil fuel deposits.
Two ways to increase resource quality.
  • Education-The Quality of Labor: Education increases the quality of labor resources. Better educated workers are more productive workers.
  • Education can be formal, sitting-in-a-classroom or informal, on-the-job-training experience. Both are valuable methods of increasing the quality labor.
  • Technology-The Quality of Capital: Technology is the knowledge and information society as a whole possesses concerning the production of goods and services. Better technology enables more production.
  • Technology concerns all aspects of production, but it is often seen as an improvement in the quality of capital.

FACTOR DEMAND DETERMINANTS

The three most important determinants that shift the factor demand curve are: (1) product price, (2) factor productivity, and (3) prices of other factors. Comparable to any determinant, these three cause the factor demand curve to shift to a new location. An increase in factor demand is a rightward shift of the factor demand curve and a decrease in factor demand is a leftward shift.
