Imagine a nation discovers a massive source of oil off of its shore that it never knew existed. Imagine that this oil discovery has made the country instantly rich.

What would the government want to do? What would the people want for their own personal condition? What would happen to the balance of economic activity in the country? Describe the impact on wages, prices, and costs that this new found wealth would have on the country’s markets.
