Notes 8/31/10 The Demand “Curve” - It can move (we often say “shift”) - Buyers/consuers can move along it - “De gustibus non est disputandum.” You can’t dispute or argue over “taste” We might as well accept the fact that people have different tastes - Do you demand “normal” and “inferior” goods? Lower Prices Mean Greater Quantities Demanded. It’s not just a good idea. It’s thelaw! The Supply “Curve” - It can move (or “shift”). - Sellers/firms can move it along Econ Lingo Distinction - “A change in demand” vs “A change in the quantity demanded” Market Economy Precondition number one for a good market economy is for workers to have autonomy of their own body and work what they work well at… choose what they want to work depending on their interests and comparative advantage. o Slaves do not own their own bodies o Years ago people in China did not have a decision as to where they could work or what they were to be paid after they graduated college.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
