Ask a Question
Much as I appreciate your videos, I do find the the final slides in most of your slides asking us to 'Google XYZ' a bit silly, and rather insulting! Of course, google will be used if we want some more information, that goes without saying!! What would be more useful is if you could give more specific references - either authors/books/articles, or any other specific links that discuss the topic in question!
how about the paradox of limited resources in microeconomics. isThe sun and air limited? Or economic theory has more use in scarity?
"isThe sun and air limited?" You think that is a "paradox"? Have you not opened up a principles text? There will be a section very near the beginning on 'free goods'. Air will be most likely be the example used. With the caveat that it will cease to be such a good in places like the moon or underwater. My textbook suggested that air might cease to be a free good if polluted too much.
It sounds like you believe that economics demands that all goods be scarce, & I have to wonder from where or from who you acquired such a bizarre idea.
The simple fact is that if a good is not scarce, it does not need to be economised on, & since economists study the logic & results of such economising behaviour there is in the case of the a non scarce goods nothing to study.
