An economy in which labor is relatively scarce would tend to use capital intensive production methods. C. An increase in the availability of labor relative to capital in an economy would tend to increase how labor intensive the production processes in that economy would be.

Answers

Answer:

B. An economy in which labor is relatively scarce would tend to use capital intensive production methods.

Explanation:

In modern economies, production is done by combining the two factors of production, capital and labor. Each company will seek to make the most economical and efficient combination of these factors in the production process. However, in situations of scarcity of one factor, companies will have to increase the intensity of the most abundant factor. Thus, for example, if in an economy the labor factor is scarce, business output will be more capital intensive, that is, it will use more machinery and less labor.

Nadina is struggling to decide whether to buy a new sweater that she really cannot afford. what role would each f the three parts of her personality (as theorized by freud) pay in her decision

Answers

When deciding whether or not she should buy an expensive sweater, Nadina's id, ego and superego would play a role. These three components of Nadina's personality would respectively play a role as follows:

i) Id- This component of personality is basically known as the pleasure seeking component, without any rationality, logical and regard for consequences. In Nadina's instance her id would play a role in urging her to give into her desire for pleasure and buy the expensive sweater. 

ii) Ego- The ego is a part of personality, that serves as a mediator between the pleasure-seeking and irrational id, and practical, real world aspects. The ego is characterized by reasoning and consideration of real-life, pragmatic aspects in the decision making process. Here, Nadina's ego would push her to think of a way to buy the sweater and devise a plan so that this purchase will not set back her finances greatly. For instance, Nadina might decide that if she buys the sweater, she can make up for it and justify the expense by fewer meals out for the next two weeks. 

iii) Superego- This aspect of personality includes our morals, beliefs and values which we imbibe from our parents, teachers and other authority figures in society. When making decisions, we take these morals and beliefs into consideration. In Nadina's case, her superego would urge her not to buy the sweater since she cannot afford it and probably needs to spend her money mostly on essentials instead (food, rent, education, children, etc.)
