Principles Of Macroeconomics

about 450 words

2.Say you are watching your favorite television program, and a commercial comes on.  A soothing voice begins to describe your imaginary vacation in the lush, tropical paradise of Timbucktoo (a remote island in the South Pacific-fictitious of course), while pictures of rain forests and secluded beaches flash across your T.V. screen.

The commercial begins to describe your daily itinerary while showing you the “gentle and friendly” native peoples of Timbucktoo, performing native dances and other activities to the delight of the tourists.

You begin to think (sadly enough!) about macroeconomics.  You wonder about these “gentle and friendly” people of Timbucktoo living on an island thousands of miles away from anything out in the middle of the South Pacific, and you ask yourself why the people of Timbucktoo would desire tourism to come to their peaceful and secluded island?  What could they possibly do with that added aggregate income (generated by tourism) when they are out in the middle of nowhere.  What could they possibly spend their money on?  What about the pollution and the noise?  The hustle and bustle, the crime!  And what about their peaceful and gentle way of life?  Is it worth sacrificing for more income?

As we have discussed, increases in GDP and aggregate income do not always mean the level of well-being and happiness increase as well for all citizens of a society.  With this in mind, please explain your thoughts or insights regarding this hypothetical commercial.


I am interested in discovering your ability to assimilate the information and the knowledge you have acquired from this class and apply it to these questions.  So, think of yourself as the economics expert here and show me what you know!

Your grade will be determined by how well you substantiate/support your points of contention, and how well you incorporate the concepts we have been learning about in class into your written response.  I am looking for a written response that has been deliberated upon, where you have invested some time and attention into the assignment, and not something you have cobbled together in about 10 minutes.


In terms of the length of each response, I would like to see a minimum of 3-4 well-developed paragraphs per question.  Of course, the word count may vary.  But anything less than 3-4 paragraphs is too truncated in my opinion, and will likely earn fewer points.    

As such, a hastily prepared written response containing one or two paragraphs consisting of one or two points of contention made supported by a couple of concepts from class will likely receive a low score.  On the other hand, a polished, well-organized, adequately supported written response that flows well from beginning to end will likely receive high marks.  And hasty or thorough, the beauty is that it is your choice to make.  And remember, all choices have opportunity costs!
