FINAL GOOD: A good (or service) that is available for purchase by the ultimate or intended user with no plans for further physical transformation or as an input in the production of other goods that will be resold. Gross domestic product seeks to measure the market value of final goods. Final goods are purchased through product markets by the four basic macroeconomic sectors (household, business, government, and foreign) as consumption expenditures, investment expenditures, government purchases, and exports. Final goods, which are closely related to the term current production, should be contrasted with intermediate goods--goods (and services) that will be further processed before reaching their ultimate user.

Lesson 4: Production Possibilities | Unit 4: Analysis Page: 17 of 24

Topic: Resource Quantity and Quality <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Three ways to increase resource quantity.
  • Labor: Labor increases through (1) natural population growth, (2) immigration from other nations, and (3) more participation and fewer nonworkers.
  • Capital: The key to getting more capital is investment, giving up satisfaction today to get capital tomorrow.
  • Materials: The key to increasing their quantity is exploration. Exploration is best illustrated by digging or drilling into the Earth's crust in search of mineral or fossil fuel deposits.
Two ways to increase resource quality.
  • Education-The Quality of Labor: Education increases the quality of labor resources. Better educated workers are more productive workers.
  • Education can be formal, sitting-in-a-classroom or informal, on-the-job-training experience. Both are valuable methods of increasing the quality labor.
  • Technology-The Quality of Capital: Technology is the knowledge and information society as a whole possesses concerning the production of goods and services. Better technology enables more production.
  • Technology concerns all aspects of production, but it is often seen as an improvement in the quality of capital.

SUPPLY PRICE

The minimum price that sellers are willing and able to accept for a given quantity of a good. While sellers might be willing and able to accept more than the supply price for a given quantity, they are not willing and able to accept less. The supply curve is a plot of the supply price for each quantity.

This isn't me! What am I?

Al Capone's business card said he was a used furniture dealer.
"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minuteshould be enjoyed and savored."
