Guns and Butter Curve(redirected from Guns and Butter Curves)
Guns and Butter Curve
A curve on a chart demonstrating a theoretical construction of opportunity cost. Given an economy of only two products, guns and butter, and limited resources, economic actors must decide how much of each to produce. The more guns it produces, the less butter it can produce and vice versa. The guns and butter curve demonstrates this graphically.
