Once the doctor becomes used to communicating primarily with families, they
continue to do so
It is also hard to break bad news to people

In most cases, factors of production are used together in a way that makes each
factors productivity dependent on the quantities of the other factors.
Example: an increase in the quantity of capital
The marginal product and rental price of capital fall.

The Value of the Marginal Product
Cost of hiring another worker (wage) is measured in dollars
Benefit of hiring another worker (MPL) is measured in units of output
Solution: convert MPL to dollars
