 Rent on land (including apricot trees)                                        $300,000

This is an economy that produces only two goods: fresh apricots and dried apricots.

In this economy, the technology of producing dried apricots is to place fresh apricots on special racks and allow them to dry in the sun.

Fannie’s Farms is the only company that grows fresh apricots, while Darryl’s Dried Victuals is the only producer of dried apricots. Fannie’s sells some of its apricots directly to consumers for consumption.

The relevant revenue and cost information for each of the two firms in the economy is given above.
