LABOR: One of the four basic categories of resources, or factors of production (the other three are capital, land, and entrepreneurship). Labor is the services and efforts of humans that are used for production. While labor is commonly thought of as those who work in factories, it includes all human efforts (except entrepreneurship), such as those provided by clerical workers, technicians, professionals, managers, and even company presidents.

Topic: Efficiency <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

  • With money we can use our limited resources to provide more satisfaction of our unlimited wants and needs.

  • First: Money improves efficiency by reducing the amount of resources that would be needed for barter exchanges.
  • Second: Money improves efficiency by letting resources specialize in production.
