“I AM LEGEND” movie

 

I use to watch some of Will Smith’s movie including the American
post-apocalyptic science-fiction thriller; I
Am Legend and I found the movie extraordinarily interesting to watch. Picturing
the world has been infected a supposed cure for cancer to a deadly plague; one
human being left whose name is Robert Neville (Will Smith), a scientist as well
the only survivor in New York City, USA. Dr. Robert Neville as productive and
active may be even though he has no one to talk to except his dog, Sam who was
at his side when his wife and daughter had a terrible helicopter accident when
a missile fired to them instead. Thus shows the whole scene where Robert does
the same routine every morning such as broadcasting the morning frequencies and
staying at the south seaport everyday (mid-day) when the sun is at the highest
in the sky, plays golf as a recreation, goes to a CD/DVD store or in his basement
lab experimenting on rats to find the cure and restore mankind from the plague;
and when night comes, he is on lockdown; all his windows and doors are barred
shut with his Colt AR15 between him and his dog, Sam hiding in the bathroom not
even a blink of sleep hearing the darkseekers coming out at ready to kill and
prey on anyone getting near them. The reason why they come out at night is
because that the darkseekers are classified as vampire-like creatures not like
you see them during the 80’s or 90’s movie, but more alive but gruesome to
imagine; their own breed of monster and would do anything in their way to find
and infect you. That is when Robert Neville and his german shepherd dog, Sam
comes into the picture although Sam only appeared a few scenes until one scene
he got infected by a darkseeker while Robert got stuck by his own trap and
watched Sam died in front of him when Robert tried to cure his dog which a
sample he created before, but failed when Sam almost attacked Dr. Neville. On
the downside imagine man’s most trusted and loyal best friend has saved you
from getting killed and after he left Sam this put Dr. Neville into a misery
state driven by his own revenge and sanity of his dog’s death, he risks himself
to go on a look out and face the darkseekers alone. He survived almost half of the
darkseekers which he faced and successfully was able to make it out through,
but the creatures started to multiply and made him overwhelmed by the amount coming
at him. He was nearly killed at this point, but was rescued by two immune
survivors; Anna, a mother of the young boy named Ethan, came from Maryland
after hearing one of his broadcasts. They took Robert who was badly injured back
to his base, where Anna explained to Dr. Neville that she and Ethan had survive
the outbreak and boarded the Red Cross evacuation ship from São Paulo and are
making their way to a survivors’ camp in Bethel, Vermont. Robert started to
feel furious and then argues that no such survivors’ camp exists. Robert Neville
once again attempts to control a potential cure to the infected woman in his
laboratory, but the next night, a group of Darkseekers, who had followed Anna
and Robert, back the night before then attacks his home. Robert, Anna, and
Ethan retreated into the basement laboratory, sealing themselves in with the
female Darkseeker on which Neville has been experimenting. Discovering that the
last treatment he created cured the woman and the results showed a successful
answer to restore humanity once again. Robert tried to think of way out of the
situation as the alpha male (darkseeker) deliberately rams himself against the
glass door to break in. At that very moment, Robert Neville draws a vial of
blood from the woman he cured and gives it to Anna and tells her he final has
the cure to bring back humanity again and never to do the same mistake as to
before. Anna and Ethan escaped leading them inside a coal chute in the back of
the lab. Robert and the alpha male is now face to face both wearing their
determine face on which of them will rise and the other one to fall, bravely
Robert took out a grenade and his family picture ( him and his wife, daughter
and Sam together as a family again) he started to run up to the alpha male
while holding on to the grenade which kills the Darkseekers at the cost of his
own life, saving the cure. The next day, before dusk, Anna and Ethan discover
that her theory is right as they arrive at the survivors’ camp in Vermont. They
were greeted by the military officers and other human survivors before Anna
showed them the vial that Robert Neville inserted the cure handing it to the
military personnel.

 

So, what does it got to do in economics? The answer here is scarcity. The
definition of scarcity is the fundamental economic problem of having seemingly
unlimited human wants and needs in a world of limited resources. It states that
society has insufficient productive resources to accomplish all human wants and
needs. This is where the movie, I am legend comes out, because three years ago
the supposed new medicine to cure cancer, turns out to be a lethal strain
virus. When mankind loses its resources, tries to avoid an economic downfall of
having insufficient productive resources to fulfill all human wants and needs. An
example of scarce resources is money and time. Like what had happened in the
movie, the government was challenged to something that mankind can’t control
and had no choice, but to announce an immediate evacuation. What if the
government decides to distribute resources to make the world a better place
everything clean such as clean air to breathe and a medicine to protect us from
any diseases, a number of questions arise. What methods exist now that needs to
be improved? Which are the most effective in the short, medium and long term?
What deals come with various courses of action? Where should the money come
from? Should the government raise taxes? How will the government keep track of
its costs, debts and the benefits that accrue from the project (i.e.

accounting)? Furthermore, the scarcity of fulfilling the human wants and needs
by providing enough more, brings up a vast array of questions about how to
efficiently distribute resources. Scarcity is the basic problem that gives rise
to economics.
