I’m taking an Economics course and currently we’re studying the law of diminishing marginal utility and I was thinking about it today after lunch…
Today I ate a pizza for lunch, it was difficult, but I ate it all. I can say that marginal utility decreased with each slice of pizza I consumed.
However, could I break this down and say that to my body marginal utility decreased as I consumed slices - it did not want me to eat the whole thing, so it’s satisfaction decreased with each slice. And then say mentally, marginal utility increased - I knew with each slice I was helping achieve my weight gain goals and therefore my satisfaction increased.
I might have some of this worded wrong, but I was just curious whether this could work as an example on a test or something.
