  1. Opportunity Cost Question • You won a free ticket to see an Eric Clapton concert (which has no resale value). Bob Dylan is performing on the same night and is your next-best alternative activity. Tickets to see Dylan cost $40. On any given day, you would be willing to pay up to $50 to see Dylan. Assume there are no other costs of seeing either performer. Based on this information, what is the opportunity cost of seeing Eric Clapton? • (a)$0, (b) $10, (c) $40, or (d) $50.

  2. Supply and Demand Chapter 3

  3. Competitive Market Lots of buyers and sellers dealing in identical goods.

  4. Catherine’s Demand Curve

  5. Market Demand as the Sum of Individual Demands

  6. Shifts in the Demand Curve

  7. Shift Factors for Demand • Income. • Prices of related goods (substitutes and complements). • Tastes/Preferences. • Expectations. • Number of buyers.

  8. Shifts in the Demand Curve versus Movements along the Demand Curve

  9. Market Supply as the Sum of Individual Supplies

  10. Market Supply as the Sum of Individual Supplies

  11. Shifts in the Supply Curve

  12. Shift Factors for Supply • Input prices. • Technology. • Weather. • Expectations. • Number of sellers.

  13. The Equilibrium of Supply and Demand

  14. Markets Not in Equilibrium

  15. A Three-Step Program for Analyzing Changes in Equilibrium • Decide whether the event shifts the supply or demand curve (or perhaps both). • Decide in which direction the curve shifts. • Use the supply-and-demand to see how the shift changes the equilibrium price and quantity.

  16. How an Increase in Demand Affects the Equilibrium

  17. How a Decrease in Supply Affects the Equilibrium

  18. A Shift in Both Supply and Demand
