ECON WEEK 3 Notes:    Demand­ What makes someone buy something?    Demand represents the behavior of the buyers. A demand curve shows the quantity demanded  at different prices. Price and Quantity are negatively related. The higher the price the less the  quantity, the lower the price the higher the quantity.     When this is applied to a chart, there are two ways to read it. Horizontally­ How much of a  product buyers are willing to purchase the product at a certain price. Vertically­ Highest price  buyers are willing to spend.     Supply­ How much of something is available for purchase?    A Supply Curve shows the quantity supplied at different prices. A Shortage is caused when  prices are too low. A Surplus is caused when  prices are too high.     The Supply curve curves up because the cost of producing a good is not equal across all  suppliers. Like the Demand chart, there are two ways to read the spply chart. Vertically­ How  high can I sell this product for and still make profit without surplus? Horizontally­ How much are  buyers willing to consume at a price?    Producer surplus is when the producer has more product than they have outlets to sell it from,  either because of limited number or an unstable price line. The price line is the logical limit of  maximum price a producer can sell for without running into a surplus or shortage. Surpluses and  shortages are both bad for producers when they occur without planning. Producers gain from  exchange. The difference between market price and the lower (minimum) price line is the profit  margin.     Changes in supply cause an intense change in the market. When the price line of the production  for the new supply is lower, it is cheaper to produce. Therefore, it would benefit the market to  increase supply and/or lower price. If the Price line of production is higher for the new supply,  then it is more expensive to produce. Therefore, the market would benefit, from decreasing the  supply and/or increasing the price.
