Chapter 2:   Supply and Demand Market Analysis Market: A Place where demand and supply meet or trade takes place. Demand: Represents consumer response to prices. Demand Curve shows quantities that a consumer is willing and able to buy at different prices. Note That , demand shows quantities that consumer is willing to buy at different prices, not the quantities that consumer actually buys.    Demand for a good can be expressed as Q = f(P). In a simple linear form, the function is Q = a – bP , where b is the slope of the demand curve.

Chapter 2:   Supply and Demand Given the demand shifters, demand equation for a good can be expressed in general form as: Q = f(P, Pc, Ps, I, A, z)               Where, Q is the quantity, P is the own-price of the good, Pc is the price of complementary good, Ps is the price of the substitute, I is income, A is advertising, and z represents other variables, such as interest rate and others. The linear form of the demand function is: Q = β o - β 1P - β 2Pc+ β 3Ps + β 4I+ β 5A The inverse demand function is when the function is expressed in terms of P as the dependent variable. That is: P = α o - α 1Q - α 2Pc + α 3Ps + α 4I + α 5A
Chapter 2:   Supply and Demand Supply: Quantities that a producer is willing and able to supply at different prices. Supply function Q = f(P), or in linear form Q = a + bP .
