In this module, you are required to learn the basic theories of supply and demand. Supply and demand are the forces that make the market function. You will also study the concept of elasticity. Elasticity is the measure of responsiveness of one variable from a change in another variable. In this course, we focus on the price elasticity of demand. It is ratio of the percentage change in quantity demanded to the percentage change in a price of a good. Essentially, it measures how consumers respond to changes in price.

For example, a price ceiling is a legal maximum price that can be charged in a particular market. Do some research on your own. Is a price ceiling set above or below the market price? Give an example of a price ceiling and discuss some disadvantages and advantages of this type of government intervention. An art museum raises its admission price, and ends up with a decrease in its total revenue. How could you explain this situation to the museum director? Suppose Billy drinks two cups of coffee a day no matter what the price. What type of elasticity does coffee have? What are the main determinants of elasticity of demand? Which is likely to be more elastic—the demand for orange juice or the demand for a particular brand of orange juice?
