This means that at any point on the frontier it is not possible to increase the production of X without reducing the production of Y. The rate at which this can be done is given by the marginal rate of transformation between X and Y (MRTXY). Clearly, points inside the frontier cannot be Pareto-efficient. Allocative efficiency: the preferred combination of goods When all points on the PPF are referred to as being Pareto-efficient in production, which point on the PPF should be chosen? e. where the consumer’s marginal rate of substitution between X and Y (MRSXY) is equal to the MRTXY.
Opportunity cost essentially refers to the benefits forgone in the best alternative programme to which the resources might otherwise have been allocated. There are some interesting connotations to consider. When you hear the word ‘cost’, there is a negative connotation, in that it reminds us that nothing comes for free, and we need to find out if we can afford it.

As well as movements up and down particular demand and supply curves, we can also consider shifts in the curves. A shift in the demand curve would be caused by a change in other parameters in the demand function besides price. For example, higher incomes tend to shift the demand curve further out. The curve would also shift out when suppliers (perhaps through advertising) persuade consumers that the good is even better or even more needed than consumers had originally thought. In health economics, the concept of supplier-induced demand is illustrated by such shifts in the demand curve—here, demand is induced by doctors who recommend that patients use more health care (see Chapter 10).
