Bus/Financial - Economics / Consumer theory
English term or phrase: economic bad
"The difficulty stems from the fact that if all those eggs count as economic goods, more cannot be preferred to less, however strenuously Hudik tries to deny this implication. The only way to save this ranking is to say that the third egg is already an economic bad – a point ignored by Hudik."

The term is used as opposed to "economic good"

Thank you!!

opadajuća granična korisnost
Explanation:
opadajuća granična (marginalna) korisnost dobra/proizvoda

U vašem slučaju su u pitanju jaja, tj. ‘treće jaje’, za koje se zna da nije preporučljivo konzumirati u okviru jednog obroka - proizvodu opada granična korisnost

Teorija granične korisnosti ili zakon opadajuće granične (marginalne) korisnosti kaže da granična korisnost dobra opada dok se količina potrošenog dobra povećava (npr. dodatna kuglica sladoleda ne donosi jednako zadovoljstvo kao i prva).
https://hr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teorija_granične_korisnosti

A commodity may be an ‘economic good’ up to a point and then becomes ‘neutral’ or even ‘economic bad’. For instance, initial glasses of water may yield positive marginal utility to the consumer, while successive glasses of water may ultimately turn out to be economic bad on account of their negative marginal utilities.
