Once you have generated aggregate supply and demand curves for labor, finding the  market equilibrium, as with the goods and services market, is simply a matter of finding  the intersection of the two curves (unless there is an artificial restriction on the market,  such as a minimum wage). Let us consider two cases: an unrestricted labor market with  shifts in the supply or demand curves, and a restricted market with a minimum wage.  Unrestricted Labor Market  First, let us consider the market for hot chocolate when the price of marshmallows  increases. Assuming that marshmallows and hot chocolate are complementary goods,  the rise in the price of marshmallows causes a drop in the demand for hot chocolate.  When demand for hot chocolate shifts in (drops), the price of hot chocolate falls. This

    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.
