Chapter  3 Questions for homework

1. Draw the circular flow of money.

Chapter  4 Questions for homework

1. Give examples of E and F that have happened in recent history.

A. Technological efficiency caused supply to increase more than demand in the 
home computer industry. As a result, prices decreased and quantity increased. 

B. Two oil embargoes in the 1970's represented a large decrease in supply.
Demand increases were small and the net effect was a small decrease in quantity 
sold and a large increase in price.

2. How would you expect government involvement in the market for college graduates 
to affect their market price? Has this happened?

A. The demand and supply for a college education has increased because of government actions. 
This has increased the quantity of college graduates. During the 1970's, price (the cost of 
a college degree) increases were lower than inflation because demand increased less than supply 
increased. During the last 10-15 years, price has increased faster than inflation. Demand has 
thus been increasing faster than supply.

B. The increase in the supply of college graduates has caused the expected drop in their wages, 
but not to the extent that the drop in demand for high school and non-high school graduates has lowered their wages.

3. Give examples of inferior and superior goods.

A. Inferior goods: bread, potatoes, beer
B. Superior goods: steak, vacations, expensive wine


4. T F Quantity demanded varies inversely with price, and quantity supplied varies directly with price.


5. T F If the price of a good's complement goes down, the supply of the good will go up.


6. T F A price ceiling keeps prices artificially low, and the market reaction is normally 
an increase in quantity supplied.
