This revision presentation looks at the basic economic problem.

Students need to understand the problem of unlimited wants and finite resources that gives rise to scarcity and inevitable choices. The fundamental economic problem is faced by consumers, producers and the government. Ensure you can distinguish between renewable and non-renewable resources and be able to explain the concept of sustainability. Value judgements influence economic decision making and policy in all countries so make sure you are clear on the difference between positive and normative statements.
