List and describe four factors that are relevant to the determination of price elasticity of demand.ANSWER: 1) Number of substitutes - The more substitutes there are for a product (and the closer the substitutes are) the higher the price elasticity of demand. 2) Necessities versus luxuries - The more that a good is considered to be a luxury rather than a necessity, the higher the price elasticity of demand. 3) Percentage of one's budget spent on the good - The greater the percentage of one's budget spent on the good, the greater the price elasticity of demand. 4) Time - The more time that passes since the price change, the greater the price elasticity of demand for the good.
