Slide 2 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Objectives 1.Identify examples of public goods. 2.Analyze market failures. 3.Evaluate how the government allocates some resources by managing externalities.
Slide 3 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Key Terms public good: a shared good or service for which it would be inefficient or impractical to make consumers pay individually and to exclude those who did not pay public sector: the part of the economy that involves the transactions of the government private sector: the part of the economy that involves the transactions of individuals and businesses infrastructure: the basic facilities that are necessary for a society to function or grow
Slide 4 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Key Terms, cont. free rider: someone who would not be willing to pay for a certain good or service but who would get the benefits of it anyway if it were provided as a public good market failure: a situation in which the free market, operating on its own, does not distribute resources efficiently externality: an economic side effect of a good or service that generates benefits or costs to someone other than the person deciding how much to produce or consume
Slide 5 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Introduction Why does a society provide public goods? –The government provides society with certain public goods because it would be inefficient or impractical for a free market economy to provide these goods on its own.
Slide 6 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Public Goods A public good is a shared good or service for which it would be inefficient or impractical to make consumers pay individually and to exclude those who do not pay.
Slide 7 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Public Goods, cont. In the case of most public goods it is simply not practical for a private business to provide the service, charge those who benefit, and exclude nonpayers from using the source. Maintaining street signs and traffic lights is one economic role of government.
Slide 8 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Public Goods, cont. Public goods can be used by any number of consumers without reducing the benefits to any single consumer. Public goods are financed by the public sector. –Firefighters are an example of a public good.
Slide 9 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Costs and Benefits Checkpoint: What two criteria must be present for a public good? –The benefit to each individual is less than the cost that each individual would have to pay if it were provided privately. –The total benefits to society are greater than the total cost.
Slide 10 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Costs and Benefits, cont. The government pays for public goods through taxes. Thus, the financial burden on each individual is significantly less than if a few people decided to fund a project privately.
Slide 11 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Free Riders One issue associated with public goods is known as the “free-rider problem.” Free riders are people who are not willing to pay for a particular good or service but would benefit from it if it were offered as a public good. –The free-rider problem suggests what would happen if the government stopped providing public goods: People would refuse to pay and many services would be eliminated.
Slide 12 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Market Failures Checkpoint: Why are public goods an example of a market failure? –Public goods are examples of a market failure, where the free market does not distribute resources efficiently. For example, the free market would not be able to build roads efficiently because building roads does not meet the criteria for a properly functioning market system. Thus, road construction is a market failure.
Slide 13 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Positive Externalities Public goods involve externalities, which may be either positive or negative. Positive Externalities –Represent the beneficial side effects of public goods. –Can also be generated by the private sector. –Allow someone who did not purchase a good to enjoy part of the benefits of that good.
Slide 14 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Negative Externalities Negative externalities cause part of the cost of producing a good or service to be paid for by someone other than the producer. Why would increased car traffic be considered a positive externality by some people and a negative externality by others?
Slide 15 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Government’s Goals Understanding externalities helps us see more roles that the government plays in the U.S. economy. –The government may take action to create positive externalities, such as improving education. –The government aims to limit negative externalities like pollution.
Slide 16 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Government’s Goals, cont. Many economists feel that the private sector produces more positive externalities that the government does. –This belief shows itself in the debate over how to stop pollution to the environment.
Slide 17 Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc.Chapter 3, Section 3 Review Now that you have learned about why a society provides public goods, go back and answer the Chapter Essential Question. –What role should government play in a free market economy?
