The red rock (soil) is the oldest layer, because it is the lowest one.
Also the basalt did not intrude the red rock, it was flowing on top of
it, which means it is younger than the red rock.
They are younger than the lava flow, because when the lava flow

The Basic Isostatic Calculation
Lets start with the basic iceberg calculation. Suppose we want to know how high a block of crust
would float in a viscous fluid mantle. (This is not a very realistic depiction of the Earths crust
and mantle. Its a little

Market Failures II: Public Goods
Markets are efficient in allocating goods that are both
rival and excludable:
Rival: if one person consumes the good, less of that good
