Question:

For the example of rent control, who is made worse off? Who is made better off?

Inactive
Ross L.
Answer:

Rent control decreases supply of housing, decreases quality, and increases prices for new renters. So, renters, some tenants, construction companies, and the housing market is all made worse off. Rent control keeps a stable price for current renters. So existing tenants (regardless of income) are made better off.

Question:

If country A can produce more cars AND more T-shirts than country B, why would country A outsource T-shirt manufacturing to country B?

Inactive

Answer:

Country B must have a comparative advantage in T-shirt manufacturing. It may be true that country A can create more of both, but it has to give up more T-shirts per car manufactured than country B, so they outsource that work and import T-shirts.
