TIEBOUT HYPOTHESIS: The notion that people relocate from one political jurisdiction to another in search of a more preferred package of government taxes and spending. This hypothesis suggests that people "shop" for compatible government activity in the same way they might shop for a car, a house, or a flavor of ice cream. The Tiebout hypothesis indicates that people have two methods of "voting" on government activity -- one is at the ballot box the other is with their feet by seeking a more preferred location.

Opportunity cost is greater as we produce more calibrators. Why?
  • The law of increasing opportunity cost which says that the opportunity cost of producing a good increases as more and more of the good is produced.
  • Third rule of inequality. All resources are not equally suited to produce all goods.
  • First calibrator (A to B) uses resources best suited for calibrators and least suited for shoes.
  • Tenth calibrator (J to K) uses resources least suited for calibrators and best suited for shoes.
  • As more of a good is produced and supplied, opportunity cost increases.

ALLOCATION EFFECT

A change in the allocation of resources caused by placing taxes on economic activity. By creating disincentives to produce, consume, or exchange, taxes generally alter resource allocations. The allocation effect is typically used when governments seek to discourage the production, consumption, or exchange of particular goods or activities that are deemed undesirable (such as tobacco use or pollution). This is one of two effects of taxation. The other (primary) is the revenue effect, which is the generation of revenue used to finance government operations.
