Marginal physical product, usually abbreviated MPP, is found by dividing the change in total product by the change in the variable input.

Creating WEALTH

Wealth -- what is it and how do you get it? Perhaps one of those home business franchises that sell cleaning products, housewares, or perfume can be your source of financial independence.
