DemandandSupply

Why do roses cost more on Valentine’s Day?

Why do TV ads cost more during the Super Bowl (\$2.7 million for 30 sec.) than during Nick at Nite reruns?

Why do hotel rooms in Sun Valley, Idaho cost more in the winter than in the summer?

Why do surgeons earn more than butchers?

Why do pro basketball players earn more than pro hockey players?

Why do economics majors earn more than most other majors?

Why are some of you going to major in economics in college?

The answer to these and other economics questions boil down to the workings of supply and demand – the subject of this chapter.

From “individual” demand to “market” demand

And, what if the price of this product decreases from \$3 to \$2?

A point to point movement on the same “D” curve is a “Change in QD”

And – what if this good prevents cancer, so we have an increase in “D” for it.

Reasons For Downsloping “D” Curve

2. Substitution Effect– new buyers now purchase.

3. Diminishing MarginalUtility - because buyers

of successive units receive less marginal utility,

they will buy more only when the price is lowered.

based on a “particular price.”

Three Reasons Why the Law of Demand Exists

QD1

• Income Effect

• When things are expensive, money buys less

• When things are cheap, money buys more

• Substitution Effect

• When apples are expensive and their

substitutes (pears) are relatively cheap,

I buy fewer apples and more pears

• Diminishing Marginal Utility

• Each additional unit of an item purchased gives less marginal utility (happy points) than the previous unit. Therefore, the only way I will buy more is if the price is lower.

• Ex. When I’m hungry, I typically will buy2 breakfast tacos. The reason I don’t buy a third taco is because the marginal utility of the third taco is less than the price of the taco. But, if the price of the taco is less than the marginal utility of the taco, then I will buy the third taco

• Substitutes (butter)

• Lasts a long time (gas-guzzling car)

• Inelastic (inflexible) Demand

• No substitutes(milk)

• Necessity(insulin)

• Inexpensive(safety pin)

• No durability(pencil)

• Lasts only a short time(bread)

Quantity Demandedvs.Demand

Quantity Demanded [QD] is triggered by a price chg.

The quantities of a good or service thatpeople will purchase at a specific priceat a given time.

Demand [D] is triggered by “TIMER” [non-price].

A schedule of the total quantities of a good or service thatpurchasers will buy at different pricesat a given time.

• Ex: fishhooks & pantyhose or salt & shoelaces

• 2. Substitute goods(“competing goods”)

• - price change of one affects the

1. What would cause an “increase in QD” for Snickers?

a. increase in price of Snickers b. decrease in price of Snickers

c. decrease in income d. increase in number of consumers

2. What would cause an “increase in D” for Snickers?

a. increase in taste b. decrease in price of Snickers

c. decrease in income d. increase in the price of Snickers

3. What would cause a “decrease in QD” for Snickers?

a. increase in taste b. decrease in price of Snickers c. increase in price of Snickers

4. What would cause a “decrease in D” for Snickers?

a. decrease in income b. increase in taste c. decrease in price of Snickers

5. An “increase in the price of Butterfingers would

cause a(n) (increase/decrease) in (QD/D) for Snickers?

1. (Demand/Supply) is identified as quantities consumers are willing

and able to buy at various prices during a given time period.

2. The law of demandsays thatprice & QD are (directly/inversely)related.

3. The most important variable influencing decisions to produce and

purchase goods is (technique/price). (Price/income) is not held

constant when moving along a stable demand curve.

4. Income effect-theincrease or decrease in purchasing power

brought on by a change in (taste/market size/price).

5. Substitution effect – tendency to substitute a (higher/lower)

-priced product for a more expensive product.

6. Diminishing marginal utility – utility, or (determination/anger/satisfation)

decreases as more of the same product [Snickers] is consumed.

7. The law of demandrefers to a(movement/shift)along a demand curve.

8. Substituting chicken as the price of steak goes up is an example

of the (income/substitution) effect.

9. When the price of caviar falls, the purchasing power of our money income

rises & thus permits us to purchase more caviar. This is the (income/substitution) effect.

10. The demand(curve/schedule)is anumerical tabulationshowing QD at each price.

The demand(curve/schedule)is agraphical representationof the law of demand.

11. Elasticity ofdemand–the way price affects(attitude/quantity/market size).

12. (Inelastic/Elastic) demand – demand that is very responsive to price.

[A small price increase causes a large decrease in quantity demanded.]

13. (Inelastic/Elastic) demand-when a change in price has little impact on QD.

14. The 3-item test for elastic demand are substitutes, luxury items,

and (inexpensive/expensive) items.

15. The 3-item testfor inelastic demand are no substitutes,

necessities, and (inexpensive/expensive) items.

16. Expensive cars have (inelastic/elastic) demand.

17. Pepsi Cola has (inelastic/elastic) demand.

18. Insulin has (inelastic/elastic) demand.

19. The elastic demand curve is more (horizontal/vertical).[much change]

20. The inelastic demand curve is more (horizontal/vertical).[not much change]

21. With the invention of the calculator, the demand curve for the

slide rule (increased/decreased).

22. When Forest Gump went to China & the U.S. followed by

opening up relations with China, the demand curve for

Coke (increased/decreased).

23. An increase in income would (increase/decrease) the demand

for used clothing. [inferior good]

24. A decrease in income would (increase/decrease) the demand

for lobster. [normal good]

25. A decrease in the price of product X[lumber] will (incr/decr)

the demand for the complementaryproduct Y. [nails]

26. After Brooke Shields[15] did her national TV ads[“Nothing comes

between me and my Calvin’s”], the “D” curve moved (right/left).

\$45

27. An increase in the price of Pepsi causes the

demand curve for Coke to move to the (right/left).

28. If there is a sale on shirts, the demand curve for ties will move

to the (right/left).

29. If a man’s workplace is about to close down, his demand

curve for major purchases would move to the (right/left).

30. If a cure for lung cancer were found, the demand curve for

cigarettes would move to the (right/left).

31. If the price of pancakes decreases, the demand

for syrup, a complement, will (increase/decrease).

32. If the price of butter decreases, the demand formargarinewill (incr/decr).

33. A “change in QD” is caused by (price change/TIMER)[a “movement”]

34. A “change in D” is caused by (price change/TIMER) [a “shift”]
