There are only two industries in this island one producing X and the other producing Y. The following graph shows the production possibilities frontier (PPF) for this country. It shows the effects on the production of X and Y from shifting workers from one industry to the other one worker at a time. For example suppose that currently X = 1 and Y = 90. Now if we shift one worker from Y to X production the production of X will increase to X = 2 and the production of Y will decrease to Y = 75. 1)Consider the information in the attached file. The allocatively efficient quantities of the two goods are: X = units and Y = units. 2)Consider the information in the attached file. Suppose that because of a new process invention the labor in the Y industry becomes more productive. In particular the marginal product of every worker in the Y industry increases by 20 units. The marginal product of labor in the X industry remains unchanged. The marginal social benefit of X in terms of Y also remains unchanged. As a result of this invention the allocatively efficient quantities of the two goods become X = units and Y = units. Show lessĪ
