    Distinguish between Normative Economics and Positive Economics, with suitable examples.


    Positive Economics

    Positive Economics

    Positive economics deals with economic issues as they are. It is based on facts and actual data.

    Normative economics deals with economic issues as they ought to be. It is based on opinions and is suggestive in nature.

    Positive statements are strictly neutral towards ends.

    Normative statements can only be assessed relative to beliefs and value judgements.

    e.g. growth rate is 5%; industrial output grew by 3%.

    e.g. The unemployment rate should be reduced



    Question5. Why do central problems arise? Discuss briefly.


    Central problems are economic problems faced by each and every economy. They arise due to:

    (i) Scarcity of resources:- Human wants are unlimited and available resources in relation to same are scarce and limited.

    (ii) Alternate uses of resources:- Available resources can be put to multiple uses, hence, the economy has to make a choice amongst alternative uses of available resources
