PARETO IMPROVEMENT: Based on the Pareto efficiency criterion, the notion that an action improves efficiency if it is possible for one person to benefit without anyone else being harmed. A Pareto improvement is possible if the economy has idle resources or market failures. With idle resources, more production is possible to help some without hurting others. With market failures, corrective actions can eliminate deadweight loss that can then be use for benefits economy-wide. A contrasting condition for attaining efficiency is the Kaldor-Hicks improvement.

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 touring the new suburban shopping complex looking to buy either a package of 3 by 5 index cards, the ones without lines or a blue mechanical pencil. Be on the lookout for slightly overweight pizza delivery guys.
