does massive unemployment shift the ppc to the left..?

Good try Jayshree!

Massive unemployment will not shift the PPC curve to left. Infact, the point on PPC where the economy was producing earlier will shift below the PPC. This is because unemployment implies inefficient use of resources and this inefficient use of resources is depicted by shifting the point below the PPC.

Massive unemployement does not reduce the capacity to produce therefore PPC will not shift to it's left but it will show underutilisation of resources.
