Production Possibility Frontier

Production Possibility Frontier shows the various combinations of the two goods that a country can produce by utilizing the nation's scarce resources efficiently. Any combination under the PPF shows an inefficient allocation of the resources. The points on the PPF are the pareto efficient combinations which implies that the nation cannot increase production of one without decreasing that of the other.
