We then discuss the main factors that will increase or decrease demand, and show how these factors can be incorporated into a demand function and shown by a shift of the demand curve. Our exploration of supply parallels what students learned about demand: law of supply, factors that shift supply, and exploration of supply curves and supply functions. The equilibrium price and quantity are determined both graphically using demand and supply curves and numerically using demand and supply functions.

We introduce the concept of total surplus, or the benefits from market transactions that move goods from firms who can produce it cheaply to consumers who value it highly. Concepts like the efficient level of output, over- or underproduction and the resulting deadweight loss, are explored. We propose a simple, four-step procedure to showing how a market is affected by a change in supply or demand.

We then go through specific examples of changes in demand, supply, and finally both changing simultaneously. Having established how competitive markets will reach equilibrium, we turn to government intervention that prevents that equilibrium. We explain the common consequences of such interventions, using rent control and the minimum wage as our examples.

Summary: Understanding how markets are determined by supply, demand, and government intervention will help you become a better manager. Key Terms: i. Market: Any arrangement that allows buyers and sellers to transact their business.

Summary: The law of demand says that when the price of a good or service falls, consumers will increase the amount they wish to purchase. This is explained by the substitution effect and the income effect. We can express this negative relationship between price P and quantity demanded Qd graphically, forming a downward- sloping demand curve; or numerically, as a demand equation, where price enters negatively.

The main factors that will shift the demand for a good or service discussed are: income, prices of substitutes and complements, consumer preferences and advertising, financial market conditions, expected future price, and the number of consumers in the relevant market. Changes in demand result in either a shift of the demand curve or a change in the demand function. Substitution effect: When the price of a good or service changes, its price compared to the prices of other substitute goods or services changes.

Demand curve: A curve that shows the relationship between the price of a good or service and the quantity demanded. Normal good or service: A good or service for which an increase in income increases demand and a decrease in income decreases demand.

Inferior good or service: A good or service for which an increase in income decreases demand and a decrease in income increases demand. Substitutes: Alternative goods and services; a consumer buys one or the other. Complements: Separate goods and services purchased for use together; a consumer buys one and the other. Emphasize the distinction, that demand refers to the entire demand curve or demand function, while quantity demanded refers to the actual amount demanded at one specific price.

Summary: If we make the assumption that firms will provide more of goods that are more profitable and less of goods that are less profitable, the result is the law of supply: higher prices cause firms to increase the quantity supplied. This positive relationship can be shown by an upward-sloping supply curve, or by a supply function where price enters positively.

The main factors that affect supply are: cost of production, substitutes and complements in production, technology, the state of nature, expected future price, 3. A change in supply shifts the supply curve and changes the supply function. Increases in supply result in more output supplied at every price, increasing the function and shifting the supply curve to the right.

Decreases in supply do the opposite, resulting in less output produced at every price, and shifting the supply curve to the left. Supply curve: A curve illustrating the relationship between the price of a good or service and the quantity supplied. Substitutes in production: Products that are alternatives in production; a firm can produce one or the other. Complements in production: Products that are produced simultaneously; a firm produces one and the other. Teaching Tip: Increases and decrease in supply always seem to trip up some students, who are used to thinking of increase as a shift up and decrease as a shift down.

Summary: Demand and supply interact in a competitive market to obtain an equilibrium price. If the price is not equal to the equilibrium price, it will change so that it does. If the price is too high, there will be a surplus, which will cause prices to fall due to a rise in inventories; if the price is too low, there will be a shortage, which will cause prices to rise due to a fall in inventories.

Mathematically, if provided supply and demand functions, setting them equal and solving for P will yield the equilibrium price, which can then be plugged back into either equation to obtain the equilibrium quantity.

Equilibrium price: The price at which the quantity demanded equals the quantity supplied. Equilibrium quantity. The quantity bought and sold at the equilibrium price. Equilibrium: A situation in which no automatic forces lead to change; once at the equilibrium, the situation will persist until some factor changes.

Teaching Tip: Managers should be concerned about knowing the equilibrium price and being able to predict changes. Pricing too high means consumers will not buy as much output, which means lost revenues. Pricing too low means earning less profit on each unit than you could.

Thus, charging the equilibrium price is an important aspect of being a manager. Summary: Any society has limited resources, so it is crucial that these resources are used to obtain the greatest overall benefit. Total surplus is maximized when marginal benefit equals marginal cost, or where the demand and supply curves intersect. Producing more or less than this level of output results in less total surplus, i.

We can divide this total surplus into consumer surplus and producer surplus. Efficient quantity: The quantity of output that yields the largest total surplus of marginal benefit over marginal cost for society. Deadweight loss: The loss in total surplus from producing less or more than the efficient quantity.

Consumer surplus: The difference between the maximum price consumers are willing and able to pay for each unit of a product and the price actually paid, summed over the quantity of units purchased. Producer surplus: The difference between the actual price producers receive for each unit and the minimum price they are willing to accept to produce that unit, summed over the quantity of units produced.

Teaching Tip: Why should managers care about consumer surplus? Later in the course, when you consider alternate pricing strategies, you may be able to design a pricing system that allows you to extract some of this consumer surplus as profit for your firm. Summary: We establish a simple four-step procedure for students to use when analyzing a shift in demand or supply.

Draw a demand and supply figure to show the initial equilibrium, determine which curve demand or supply is affected, determine whether the change shifts the curve left or right, and finally add the new curve to the diagram to determine the new equilibrium. Changes in demand result in price and quantity moving in the same direction, while changes in supply result in price and quantity moving in opposite directions. When both demand and supply are affected usually by two different factors changing simultaneously , you will be able to determine whether one of the variables P or Q increases or decreases, but the other can either increase or decrease depending on whether demand shifted more or less than supply.

Teaching Tip: Inventories are important! How can you run a store with thousands of products and have any idea what price to charge, how much to order, or whether you should raise or lower prices? Pay attention to your inventories and how they change. If suddenly the demand for a good increases and more customers want to buy it, your inventory of that good will fall. First the shelves will be bare, then you will run out of stock in the back of the store.

That should serve as a signal to you that something has changed in the market, and you probably want to do two things: order more of the product, and raise the price you charge to reflect the increase in demand.

If you do not order more and have bare shelves, you are missing out on potential profit. Note that you do not have to know why your customers are demanding more of the product — you just have to be observant enough to see the change in inventories and respond accordingly. Summary: Governments can force non-equilibrium prices on a market through the use of price ceilings like rent control and price floors like minimum wages.

Price ceilings force the price down, causing an increase in quantity demanded but a decrease in quantity supplied. The resulting shortage often results in increased search times and black markets. Price floors, on the other hand, force the price up.

Сьюзан стояла перед ним, промокшая, взъерошенная, в его пиджаке, накинутом на плечи. Она выглядела как первокурсница, попавшая под дождь, а он был похож на студента последнего курса, одолжившего ей свою куртку. Впервые за многие годы коммандер почувствовал себя молодым.

Деньги налогоплательщиков в действии. Когда он начал просматривать отчет и проверять ежедневную СЦР, в голове у него вдруг возник образ Кармен, обмазывающей себя медом и посыпающей сахарной пудрой. Через тридцать секунд с отчетом было покончено. С шифровалкой все в полном порядке - как. Бринкерхофф хотел было уже взять следующий документ, но что-то задержало его внимание.

Но это было не совсем. Сьюзан переживала из-за того, что ей пришлось солгать любимому человеку, но у нее не было другого выхода. Все, что она сказала, было правдой еще несколько лет назад, но с тех пор положение в АН Б изменилось. Да и весь мир криптографии изменился. Новые обязанности Сьюзан были засекречены, в том числе и для многих людей в высших эшелонах власти.

Он же знал, что Фонтейн в отъезде, и решил уйти пораньше и отправиться на рыбалку. - Да будет тебе, Мидж.  - Бринкерхофф посмотрел на нее осуждающе.

Беккер последовал в указанном направлении. Он очутился в огромной комнате - бывшем гимнастическом зале. Бледно-зеленый пол мерцал в сиянии ламп дневного света, то попадая в фокус, то как бы проваливаясь.

 В вашем распоряжении двадцать тысяч сотрудников. С какой стати вы решили послать туда моего будущего мужа. - Мне был нужен человек, никак не связанный с государственной службой.

Никогда еще государственные секреты США не были так хорошо защищены. В этой недоступной для посторонних базе данных хранились чертежи ультрасовременного оружия, списки подлежащих охране свидетелей, данные полевых агентов, подробные предложения по разработке тайных операций. Перечень этой бесценной информации был нескончаем. Всяческие вторжения, способные повредить американской разведке, абсолютно исключались.

Сьюзан пробежала мимо них с одной только мыслью - как можно скорее предупредить Стратмора. Сотрудник лаборатории систем безопасности схватил ее за руку. - Мисс Флетчер.
