Review from Last Class Complements – two goods that go together. When the price of one goes up the demand of the other goes down. i.e. Hot Dogs and Mustard, Gas and Cars Inferior Good – a good that people demand less of when their income increases. i.e. Low quality products (disposable razors example) Normal Good – a good that people demand more of when their income increases. New clothing, new car, new phone, new computer, new video game Substitutes – two goods that compete with each other. When the price of one good goes up, the quantity demanded of the other also goes up. i.e. coke and pepsi
Factors that Shift Demand Consumer Income Employment and Unemployment rates Price of Substitute Price of Complement Population (of buyers) Market Size Tastes Future Price Expectations What buyers expect the future prices of the good will be
How to Illustrate the Shift in Demand When demand increases, at any given price people want to buy more of the good. The demand curve shifts outward and to the right When demand decreases, at any given price people want to buy less of the good. The demand curve shifts inward to the left
Factors that Shift Supply Technology Price of Inputs (inputs are things used to produce the goods) Number of Firms Price of Substitute Products Price of Joint Products Future Price Expectations
How to Illustrate the Shift in Supply An event that increases supply causes the supply curve to shift outward and to the right An event that decreases supply causes the supply curve to shift inward and to the left
