Making Decisions in a Market Economy


  • Daily Supply Curve of Hamburgers

    • At higher prices, sellers generally offer more units for sale. The supply curve is upward sloping. This is based on the logical assumption that people will be wiling to produce and sell goods as long as the price they received for these goods is sufficient to cover the opportunity cost of supplying them.


  • The Daily Demand Curve for Hamburgers

    • The demand curve for any good is generally a downward-sloping function of its price. At lower prices, buyers generally want to purchase more units.


  • The Equilibrium Price and Quantity of Hamburgers

    • The equilibrium quantity and price of a product are the values that correspond to the intersection of the supply and demand curves for that product.


  • Excess Supply

    • When price exceeds the equilibrium price, there is excess supply, or surplus, that is equal to the difference between quantity supplied and quantity demanded.

Excess supply = 8000 hamburgers/day

Demand


  • Excess Demand

    • When price lies below the equilibrium price, there is excess demand, the difference between quantity demanded and quantity supplied.

Excess demand = 8000 hamburgers/day
