DEMAND The relationship between demand and priceThe relationship between demand and price –the law of demand –the income effect –the substitution effect The demand curveThe demand curve

2
DEMAND Other determinants of demandOther determinants of demand –tastes –number and price of substitute goods –number and price of complementary goods –income –distribution of income –expectations Movements along and shifts in the demand curveMovements along and shifts in the demand curve

SUPPLY The relationship between supply and priceThe relationship between supply and price The supply curveThe supply curve –why supply curves generally slope upwards Other determinants of supplyOther determinants of supply –costs of production –profitability of alternative products (substitutes in supply) –profitability of goods in joint supply –nature and other random shocks –aims of producers –expectations of producers –Number of producers

ELASTICITY Elasticity Elasticity –use of proportionate or percentage changes –the sign (positive or negative) –the value (greater or less than one) Price elasticity of demand (P d): determinantsPrice elasticity of demand (P d): determinants –number and closeness of substitute goods –the proportion of income spent on the good –time

13
ELASTICITY Price elasticity of demand and consumer expenditure (P x Q)Price elasticity of demand and consumer expenditure (P x Q) –effects of a price change on expenditure: elastic demand –effects of a price change on expenditure: inelastic demand –extreme cases –applications to price decisions

14
ELASTICITY Measurement of elasticity: arc elasticityMeasurement of elasticity: arc elasticity –the formula for price elasticity of demand: Q/Q ÷ P/P –using the average or 'mid-point' method

16
ELASTICITY Measurement of elasticity: point elasticityMeasurement of elasticity: point elasticity –the formula for price elasticity of demand: dQ/dP x P/Q –the elasticity of a straight-line demand curve (constant dQ/dP) –the elasticity of a curved demand curve: dQ/dP is the tangent to the curve
