SD_2010-2011/2 6. The currency used by the Confederate States of America during its brief existence from 1861 to 1865 has become a collector's item today. The Confederate Currency supply is perfectly inelastic. As the demand for the collectible increases and some of the old currency is destroyed or no longer of value as a collectible, what happens to the market price? Solution: The increase in demand for Confederate currency will result in a rightward shift of demand from D 0 to D 1 . This demand effect will put upward pressure on the price of Confederate currency. As some of the collectibles deteriorate and become worthless, the supply curve shifts back to the left as indicated above by the movement from S 0 to S 1 . The supply effect places upward pressure on prices. Both effects put upward pressure on prices, so we can say unambiguously that prices for Confederate currency will rise. 7.
