Deciding to buy a house is a lifelong goal for many people. Imagine that you are renting a studio apartment and have just discovered you are having a baby. Your present apartment is small and far from schools and local services. You have decided to move. There are many factors that come into play when making such a large and weighty purchase. Examine the decision-making process from the perspective of an economist. In your Final Project, you use these principles and other factors to make a final decision whether to buy a house.
Consider the 10 Principles of Economics as outlined in Ch. 1 of the text.
Assume for this CheckPoint that purchasing a new home is a major decision requiring a substantial financial outlay where the wrong decision has long-term financial consequences.
Submit a 250- to 300-word response addressing the following points:
· Which of the 10 principles do you think plays a major role in your decision?
· Provide an example for each about decision-making, interaction, and the workings of the economy.
Explain how that influences the marginal benefits and marginal costs associated with the decision to purchase a house.
