Why Is the PPF Curve Bowed Outward?

Answer

The production possibility frontier is a term used in economics and goes by names of production- possibility curve, production-possibility boundary or a product trans formative curve. It is a graph that compares the production rate of two commodities that use a fixed total of factors of production. The PPF curve will show the maximum production level of a commodity that shows results that are given by a production level. A PPF bow curved outward is the result of economic concepts such as scarcity of resources, productive efficiency, and economics of scale.
