Suppose that the current market price of VCRs is $300, that average consumer disposable income is $30,000, and that the price of DVD players (a substitute for VCRs) is $500. Under these conditions annual U.S. demand for VCRs is 5 million per year. Statistical studies have shown that for VCRs the own-price elasticity of demand is –1.3. The income elasticity of demand for VCRs is 1.7. The cross-price elasticity of demand for VCRs with respect to DVDs is 0.8.
