Economics Macroeconomics Market Equilibrium  Marstt Equilibrium 1 : Equilibrium Price and Quantity 2 : Shifts in supply and Demand 3 : Real World Applications  Market equilibrium - How is a price determined?  Interaction between supply and demand - Need to “fine-tune” this question-  We’re interested in not every price but an equilibrium price - How is an equilibrium price determined?  A price once achieved will tend to be sustained – no tendency to change (ceteris paribus) - One place where Qd=Qs, NOT supply=demand, that would only make one line and not an intersection  Equilibrium price Qd=Qs Price Qd (P) $5 10 $4 20 Price (P) Qs $3 35 $2 55 5$ 60 4$ 50 $1 80 3$ 35 The equilibrium 2$ 20 price is at $3 1$ 5 - Price decreases, Quantity demanded increases [CONSUMER] - Price increases, Quantity supplied decreases [PRODUCER] - Qd= Qs at $3 - Prices Above Equilibrium…  At $5 Qd= 10lbs and Qs= 60lbs  At $4 Qd= 20lbs and Qs= 50lbs - Prices Below Equilibrium…  At $1 Qd= 80lbs and Qs= 5lbs - Qd exceeds Qs “shortage”  Pushes prices up  Movement of Equilibrium - Equilibrium price/quantity - It makes an X or an intersection S The BIG BLUE CIRCLE represents the equilibrium/ intersection. [$3,35] In equilibrium, there are no shortages or surpluses What if a price is above equilibrium? It is a surplus What if it is below? Shortage Surplus: Qs exceeds Qd- downward pressure on prices- movement to equilibrium- rationing function of prices Shortage: Qd exceeds Qs- upward pressure on prices- movement to equilibrium- rationing function of price- let price take care of it…
