From the Paper:

"Everyday thousands of workers face challenging economic decisions in the market economy. In the market economy, consumers and businesses make decisions of what they will produce, purchase, and distribute. Decisions in the market economy are influenced by the forces of supply and demand and competition. Mankiw's 10 principles of economics offer an outline of how wages are determined in a market economy. The two key principles which apply to the labor market for nurses are "People Face Tradeoffs" and "Governments Can Sometimes Improve Market Outcomes" (Mankiw, 2004)."
