25. Conditions Affecting the Quantity Demanded • Personal taste • Usefulness • Income and wealth • Prices of related goods

26. The Law of Demand • An increase in the price of a good, with no change in other conditions, generally reduces the quantity demanded. • Demand curves have negative (downward) slopes.

27. Why Demand Curves Slope Downward • Buyers can replace a good with another, cheaper substitute. • People cannot afford to buy as much after a price increase requiring them to turn to cheaper substitutes or less of the higher priced good.

28. Changes in Demand • A change in demand means a change in the numbers in the demand schedule and a shift in the demand curve.

29. Changes in Demand • An increase (or rise ) in demand means an increase in the quantity demanded at a given price—shifts the demand curve to the right.
