ALLOCATION: The process of distributing resources for the production of goods and services, and of distributing goods and services for consumption by households. This process of allocation is essential to an economy's effort to address the problem of scarcity. An allocation is efficient if the resources, goods, and services are distributed according to the economy's highest valued uses.

FULL EMPLOYMENT, PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES:

Full employment is the condition that exists when all available resources are engaged in the production of goods and services. In other words, all resources that could be used for production are being used. This is indicated in production possibilities analysis by producing a combination of goods that places the economy on the production possibilities curve.

Full Employment
Production possibilities, which analyzes the alternative combinations of two goods that an economy can produce with given resources and technology, indicates full employment when production is on the production possibilities curve.

The construction of the production possibilities curve embodies this concept of full employment. Full employment is the condition that exists when all available resources are engaged in the production of goods and services. In particular, each point on the production possibilities curve is based on the presumption that all existing resources are used to produce the two goods. In other words, all resources are engaged in production. This means that full employment exists at every point ON the production possibilities curve.

To illustrate this, use the mouse arrow to point out full employment as all points, including D and J, that lie ON the curve. However, also note that point L does not fully employ all resources and point M is not attainable with existing resources and technology.
