It is time to assess your proficiency on course learning outcome #2: Explain how comparative advantage allows less efficient producers to compete with more efficient producers 

 

The following table represents the relationship between two people stranded on an island.

 

Pat 

Mike

Coconuts per day

40

20

Fish per day

35

28

 

According to the table, Pat can collect 40 coconuts per day to Mike’s 20, and Pat can catch 35 fish per day to Mike’s 28. Using the principles of comparative advantage, answer the following questions:

  • What is the opportunity cost for fish for both Pat and Mike?
  • What is the opportunity cost for coconuts for both Pat and Mike?
  • Comparing these opportunity costs, who should specialize in catching fish, and who should specialize in collecting coconuts?
  • What is the increase in consumption for both Pat and Mike if they specialize in the correct product?

 

A good essay would have at least 100 words for each part of this assignment (at least 300 words total). In addition, it should be written well using correct grammar. Please submit your responses in a cohesive essay via a Microsoft Word document here.
