SCARCE RESOURCE: A resource with an available quantity less than its desired use. Scarce resources are also called factors of production. Scarce goods are also termed economic goods. Scarce resources are used to produce scarce goods. Like the more general society-wide condition of scarcity, a given resource is scarce because it has a limited availability in combination with a greater (potentially unlimited) productive use. It's both of these that make it scarce. In other words, even though an item is quite limited it will not be a scarce resource if it has few if any uses (think pocket lint and free good).

GREEN LOGIGUIN
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who votes for the best political candidate, regardless of party affiliation. Family and friends never seem to see more than one side of any problem or issue. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time calling an endless list of 800 numbers wanting to buy either a large red and white striped beach towel or a bottle of blackcherry flavored spring water. Be on the lookout for celebrities who speak directly to you through your television. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter J, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 123796. Your preferred shopping venue is strip malls. Your special symbol is the equal sign (=).


Is this You?

As a Green Logiguin, you seek a balance in life and your market activities. You are logical and reasonable, always seeking to weigh costs and benefits, pros and cons, ups and downs, ins and outs, goods and bads. You are the embodiment of yin and yang. You know that there are two sides to every story and every market exchange. Sometimes you buy. Sometimes you sell. You search out the best deals, with the highest quality and lowest price.


This isn't me! What am I?
LEGAL RESERVES

The combination of vault cash and Federal Reserve deposits that banks can legally use to satisfy government reserve requirements. Legal reserves, which can also be considered total reserves, are divided between require reserves and excess reserves. Required reserves are used to back up deposits and process daily transactions, while excess reserves are then available for interest-paying loans.
