Unformatted text preview: University of Southern California Department of Economics ECON 205 Principles of Macroeconomics Spring 2007 Prof. Safarzadeh Assignment # 2 I ~ Student Name: I q I -Market analysis: In each problem below, you are to illustrate the market for textile with the appropriately shaped standard demand and supply curves. In each case, draw the shift in the demand and supply which result from the actions taken in the market or changes in related variables. Indicate in the space provided wether each variable and demand and supply will increase (+), decrease (-), remain unchanged (0), or have ambiguous sign (?). Please, number the curves so that the direction of each shift will be clear. Mark the original equilibrium by El and the final equilibrium by E2. Also, assume that none of the curves are perfectly inelastic or perfectly elastic i.e., the standard demand-supply model. Textile is assumed to be a nonnalgood. . 1.
