2-2 Demand Quantity demanded ( Q d ) Amount of a good or service consumers are willing & able to purchase during a given period of time

2-3 Definitions Demand function Quantity demand as a function of the independent variables that influence the quantity demanded Direct demand The direct relationship between the quantity demanded and price (other independent variables held constant) Inverse demand The direct relationship between price and quantity demanded Demand curve A graphical presentation of inverse demand

2-4 General Demand Function Six variables that influence Q d Price of good or service (P) Incomes of consumers (M) Prices of related goods & services (P R ) Taste patterns of consumers ( T ) Expected future price of product (P e ) Number of consumers in market (N) General demand function Q d = f(P, M, P R, T, P e, N)

2-33 Market Equilibrium Equilibrium price & quantity are determined by the intersection of demand & supply curves At the point of intersection, Q d = Q s Consumers can purchase all they want & producers can sell all they want at the “market-clearing” or “equilibrium” price

2-34 Market Equilibrium

2-35 Market Equilibrium (Figure 2.5)

2-36 Market Equilibrium Excess demand (shortage) Exists when quantity demanded exceeds quantity supplied Excess supply (surplus) Exists when quantity supplied exceeds quantity demanded

2-37 Ceiling & Floor Prices Ceiling price Maximum price government permits sellers to charge for a good When ceiling price is below equilibrium, a shortage occurs Floor price Minimum price government permits sellers to charge for a good When floor price is above equilibrium, a surplus occurs

2-44 The amount exchanged Above equilibrium price the amount exchanged is determined by the demand curve Below equilibrium price the amount exchanged is determined by the supply curve

2-45 Value of Market Exchange Typically, consumers value the goods they purchase by an amount that exceeds the purchase price of the goods Economic value Maximum amount any buyer in the market is willing to pay for the unit, which is measured by the demand price for the unit of the good

2-46 Measuring the Value of Market Exchange Consumer surplus Difference between the economic value of a good (its demand price) & the market price the consumer must pay Producer surplus For each unit supplied, difference between market price & the minimum price producers would accept to supply the unit (its supply price) Social surplus Sum of consumer & producer surplus Area below demand & above supply over the relevant range of output

2-51 Simultaneous Shifts When demand & supply shift simultaneously Can predict either the direction in which price changes or the direction in which quantity changes, but not both The change in equilibrium price or quantity is said to be indeterminate when the direction of change depends on the relative magnitudes by which demand & supply shift
