Study guideMargaret Fuller, “The Great Lawsuit,” pp. 736-747: Study Guide/Discussion Forum questions
F 10/12: No classes: faculty/staff meetings. Read: Fuller, intro (736-39), and “The Great Lawsuit” (739-747). Write: response to questions on Angel Discussion Forum #2 [questions below on this sheet, too]. Original post (your own response) due: 4 p.m. Second post (response to a classmate’s points) due 8 a.m. Monday. Discussion forum is instead of SRQ for Friday; we will meet in class on Monday to discuss it.
M 10/15: In class: wrap-up of Fuller; beginning Thoreau. Read: Henry David Thoreau, intro (825-29) and “Resistance to Civil Government” (a.k.a. “Civil Disobedience,” 829-44). Please complete your response on the Fuller discussion forum by 8 a.m. and also write an SRQ on Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience” essay. Use the note-taking guide to help with Thoreau’s essay.
Questions on Fuller:
First, a caution: Fuller uses names of many people who were famous in her day to illustrate her ideas. Don’t worry if you have no idea who these people are. The footnotes in the text are helpful, but the main thing to do is see what Fuller finds admirable (or not so admirable) about the people she mentions. Look at the values she seems to want readers to focus on.
For the discussion forum, focus on question #1; if you want to discuss questions 2 and 3 in addition, great, but not required. We’ll discuss them in class on Monday.
Question #1: On pages 739-44, Fuller describes “four different kinds of equality” within marriage. The ways husbands and wives relate to each other in each type of marriage she discusses seem quite different. Which type of marriage do you think Fuller prizes most highly, and why?
To help with this question, consider: do you think Fuller puts down or values the “household partnership” (739)? Why? What does she mean when she…...

...Study Guide, Chapter 5 True-False Questions 11. When the marginal benefit of a public good exceeds the marginal cost, there will be an overallocation of resources to that public good's use. A) B) True False Feedback: Textbook, p. 102 Refer to Figure 5.5: The Collective Demand Curve (DC) represents the various levels of Marginal Benefit society gains consuming each unit of the public good. The Supply Curve (S) represents the Marginal Cost society incurs with each unit of the public good. Equilibrium occurs at three (3) units, where Marginal Benefit equal Marginal Cost at $5. At this point, there is an efficient allocation of resources. Now refer to Figure 5.4: Efficiency losses (deadweight losses) occur when quantities less than or greater than the efficient level (Q1) are produced. Efficiency loss from under-production means that resources are under-allocated (Q2). Note that at Q2, Marginal Benefit (D) is greater than Marginal Cost (S). Efficiency loss from over-production means that resources are over-allocated (as at Q3). Note that at Q3, Marginal Cost (S) is greater than Marginal Benefit (D). Therefore, the question above is a false statement. When the Marginal Benefit of a public good exceeds the Marginal Cost, that means the market is at some point where the Collective Demand Curve, DC) is higher than the Supply Curve (S). That occurs when there is an efficiency loss from under-production, meaning that there is an under-allocation of resources to that public good’s......

To prepare for the first OCA examination, you can attend an Oracle University instructor-led training course, you can study Oracle University online learning material, or you can read this book. In all cases, you should also refer to the Oracle Documentation Library for details on syntax. This book will be a valuable addition to other study methods, but it is also sufficient by itself. It has been designed with the examination objectives in mind, though it also includes a great deal of information that will be useful to you in the course of your work.
