Production Possibilities Frontier - Education/Housing    Suppose a technological advance enables this society to produce more housing with existing resources. This would be shown by a shift out in the PPF as illustrated to the right. When all resources are being used to produce housing, the maximum feasible amount has increased. However, when all resources are being used to produce education, there is no change in feasible production.

   It turns out that, though this represents an improvement only in the technology used to produce housing, it can have an impact on the amount of available education, as we shall see.
