Economics (経済学) Vol.2 Wants, Needs, and Scarcity

Wants, Needs, and Scarcity

As a society, and in economic terms, people have unlimited wants; however, resources are scarce. Don't confuse wants and needs (要求と必要性). Individuals often want what they don't need. In the automobile example used above, someone might want to drive a large luxury car, but a small pickup truck may be more suited to the purchaser's needs if he or she must have a vehicle for hauling furniture (家具を運送する). Economic decisions must be made.

A resource is scarce when there is not enough of it to satisfy human wants. And human wants are endless. Because of unlimited wants and limited resources to satisfy those wants, economic decisions must be made. This problem of scarcity (limited resources) must be addressed, which leads to economics and economic problems.

要求と必要性についてです。
限りある供給源の中でいかに効果的な経済決定をしていくのか・・・・
これが経済学を学ぶ上で一番重要なcoreの部分なのです。
