At The Margins: What Is Something Worth to You?


In this lesson, we will introduce students to several fundamental concepts, including: utility, choice, marginal cost and marginal benefit. Using the article “Christopher Bolden-Newsome: The Fight for Food Justice,” we will look at how economists understand individual choices. In particular, students will think about costs and benefits from the perspective of a local farmer’s market.
