Microeconomics: The Production Possibilities Curve - 1. Given the information I would suspect, even without evidence, that the economy might not be able to produce all the schools and beds it wants because there are inevitable constraints on any nation’s economy despite how big or small it is.

If someone else had forced that person to do the action, then the person doing the action is not morally responsible.

I argue that some epistemic possibilities are belief-based-contra the assumption that all are knowledge-based. Against the assumption that all epistemic possibility statements are analyzable in terms of the speaker's "relevant community," I contend that the truth value of some statements is a function of the speaker's epistemic states alone....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Essays] 3064 words
