UNEMPLOYMENT: The general condition in which resources are willing and able to produce goods and services but are not engaged in productive activities. While unemployment is most commonly thought of in terms of labor, any of the other factors of production (capital, land, and entrepreneurship) can be unemployed as well. The analysis of unemployment, especially labor unemployment, goes hand-in-hand with the study of macroeconomics that emerged from the Great Depression of the 1930s.

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.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time wandering around the shopping mall hoping to buy either a genuine fake plastic Tiffany lamp or a microwave over that won't burn your popcorn. Be on the lookout for fairy dust that tastes like salt.
