    The market is more allocatively efficient as it moves closer and is allocatively efficient when it arrives at the socially optimum point.

    Other than that, you got it.
    Thank you!

    Factors determining price elasticity of supply.

    Availability of factor of production.
    So if a new machinery has to be purchased an installed, the elasticity of the supply will be more elastic? Why is this so?

    I dont really get it, someone please explain and give an example.

    I feel like it somewhat similar to the time theory.

    how can 'the economic problem' be applied to the case of oil?

    Umm well the economics problem is when the resources are scarce and the wanted are unlimited (therefore we will have to make choices which can result in opportunity costs).

    So the oils are running out while the demand for oil is increasing for transport to work, school, public buses etc. Thats what I think, well according to my teacher teaching ^_^

    It's alright, I don't really know what form of question would they ask about these different type of market since I've never seen it in any past paper. But better to learn it's definition?

    Another term for it is 'Planned Economy' I think. Don't know what they can ask other than what they are?

    Ok..
    So there is a
    Market Economy - runs through the market forces of demand and supply
    Command Economy = Planned Economy = an economic system in which most resources are state owned and allocated centrally.
    Mixed Economy = an economic system in which resources are allocated through a mixture of the market and direct public sector involvement.

    Can someone put examples next to these please?

    Mixed Economy - UK

    As I explained, info failure means that sunbeds are over consumed, they cause negative externalities in consumption, no?
    Thanks

    A negative externality is when the marginal social cost is greater than the marginal private cost.
    You have stated that the marginal social benefit is lower than the marginal private benefit, i don't believe this statement exists for anything in this course.

    I think what you've tried to do is draw the opposite of a positive externality but it doesn't work like that
