An particular goal within the booklet is to explain how versions and ideas in economics are beneficial as instruments that aid rigorous, methodical and logical research and never easily helpful to resolve mathematical "puzzles" by means of delivering one "correct" resolution.

The trend line approximately describes the relationship since only one data point actually sits on the line (a standard spreadsheet package was used to construct the line). For any linear relationship if the causal variable (X) changes it always brings about the same or constant effect on the variable it affects. Usually in mathematics, the causal or independent variable is put on the horizontal or X-axis while the dependent variable is on the Y-axis. To draw a line we need: 1. The value of the dependent variable irrespective of the value of the causal or independent variable.

5. If all resources are devoted to film production (a panel A), no food and 8 films are produced. 2. This provides a measure of the opportunity cost of this first unit of food (shown in panel B). 3; producing the second unit of food requires a greater reduction in film production than the first unit. 75 units of films. Two further economic concepts are illustrated using the PPF. Points on the PPF represent static efficiency where each point reflects one state of efficiency for the economy – moving from any point on the frontier to any other point means that the economy uses its resources at their maximum efficiency albeit to produce a different combination of goods.

An excellent student manages to appreciate the broader picture of the system with all its complexity of networks, interrelationships and organization. This requires an ability to understand economic models and their role in supporting analysis of economic issues plus an appreciation of their usefulness when we attempt to understand economic phenomena at a particular point in time, within their specific, and often complicated, context. 6 RESOURCE SCARCITY AND PRICES IN THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM A key issue that motivates the study of economics is how to resolve the discrepancy between scarce resources and the numerous potential uses for them (and how this is actually ordered and organized via the economic system).
