What are the advantages of leaving resource allocation to price allocation?
Ans) The 5 benefits are Neutral, Flexible, Freedom of choice, No administrative cost and lastly Diminished incentives. Distinguish among diminishing returns and diseconomies of scale. Diseconomies of scale I guess means as you make more it becomes more costly to produce. For example, you make output 1 for $2 but output 2 for $5 thus the second one needed $3 Now let us say input for output 1 had to be doubled for input 2. One land gave output 1. Output 2 required 2 lands. Then there are not diminishing returns. Though, as second land was costing $3 there was diseconomies of scale.
