• Assume that England and Spain can switch between producing cheese and producing bread at a constant

 Labor Hours Needed to Make 1 Unit of Number of Units Produced in 24 Hours Cheese Bread Cheese Bread England 2 3 12 8 Spain 3 6 8 4

1. Assume that England and Spain each has 24 labor hours available. If each country divides its time equally between the production of cheese and bread, then what will be the total production of Cheese and Bread?
2. Check to see if the following combination of Chease and Bread could be produced in England.
3. 6 units of cheese and 4 units of bread.
4. 8 units of cheese and 3 units of bread.
Step 1

(1) Production possibility curve is a curve that represents a different combination of goods that can be produced in the economy within the given resources and technology during a specific period. From the provided information, PPC of the two countries is shown below where the AB curve is the PPC of England and the CD curve is the PPC of Spain.

Step 2

Provided that each country divides their time equally in the production of both the good that is 12 labor hours for each good. Thus the production of cheese and bread in England will be 4 units and 6 units respectively while the production of cheese and bread in Spain will be 2 units and 4 units respectively.

Step 3

(2) To see whether a combination of goods can be produced in the economy, it should be the case that either t...
