Economics 111 Supply February 8  How markets allocate resources: st 1 ndsupply schedule 2 : supply curve change is QUANTITY SUPPLIED change 3 : Shift in Supply  Supply - A supply schedule shows quantities of a good that producers are willing and able to produce at various prices out of a set of all possible prices over a specified period of time. - Shows relationship between price and quantity supplied - What happens to Qs as price decreases? GOES DOWN - What happens to Qs as price Increases? GOES UP - THEY MOVE IN THE SAME DIRECTION - Law of Supply: there will always be a direct or positive relationship between price and quantity supplied  Price (P) Quantity Supplied (Qs) $5 60 $4 50 $3 35 $2 20 $1 5 PRICE PLAYS A DIFFERENT ROLE FOR PRODUCERS LOWER PRICE, LOWER QUANTITY SUPPLIED  A change in Qs vs. Change in Supply? - VERY IMPORTANT - A change in Qs reflects a move along the supply curve as price changes--- - Remember: a price is determined by the interaction between SUPPLY AND DEMAND  A change or shift in supply - A change/shift in supply is movement of the entire curve - There are 2 possible shifts: 1. Rightward Shift- increase in supply, more supplied at ALL possible prices 2. Leftward Shift- decrease in supply, less supplied at ALL possible prices  Non- Price Determinants of Supply: 1. Cost of inputs - A cost a producer has to pay for factors of production - As cost increases, supply decreases (more paid, less supply) - As cost decreases, supply increases (cost less, more supply) 2. Technology - Level of sophistication production process - Almost always INCREASES SUPPLY (advances things) 3. Number of producers in the market (market supply) - Producers leave (fewer) --- supply decreases - Producers enter (more) --- supply increases 4. Prices of related goods - Producers that have production options - “choice” - Example) farmers can grow corn, beans, wheat, etc… S 2 P2 S1 P1 Q1 Q2 CORN WHEAT Do producers produce more? Price goes from P1Q1 to P2Q2 [YES IT DOES] - As price can increase, producers shift - Wheat will decrease because corn is going up in price - Depends on resources, if they have “choices” can produce more. 5. Government policies --- taxes and subsidies a. Taxes (another cost of production) - When a business starts has to pay taxes - Tax INCREASE supply DECREASE - Tax DECREASE supply INCREASE b. Subsidies: can be a special tax treatment (reduction) or a direct payment to encourage (right shift) or discourage (left shift) production GOVERNMENT STILL HAS A LIMITED ROLE, BUT IMPORTANT 6. Expectations - Positive expect increases - Negative expect decreases (rethink decisions)
