RELATIVELY INELASTIC: An elasticity alternative in which relatively large changes in price cause relatively small changes in quantity. In other words, quantity is not very responsive to price.

BLUE PLACIDOLA
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who makes it look as though a sloth is moving at a fast pace. Family and friends think of you as a pillar of strength, a block of granite, and other immobile objects. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel hoping to buy either a black duffle bag with velcro closures or any book written by Isaac Asimov. Be on the lookout for mail order catalogs with hidden messages. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter X, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 237472. Your preferred shopping venue is department stores. Your special symbol is the at sign (@).


Is this You?

As a Blue Placidola, you are easy-going and even-tempered, calm and composed. For you, the hectic pace of a crowded shopping mall during the holiday rush is nothing, it's little more than a tranquil stroll in the park. Life is good. Life goes on. Why worry. You are a happy shopper and you seldom fret over trivial details of a market exchange, in part because you are astute enough to get moderately low prices and relatively good deals.


This isn't me! What am I?
AVERAGE FACTOR COST CURVE, PERFECT COMPETITION

A curve that graphically represents the relation between average factor cost incurred by a perfectly competitive firm for employing an input and the quantity of input used. Because average factor cost is essentially the price of the input, the average factor cost curve is also the supply curve for the input. The average factor cost curve for a perfectly competitive firm with no market control is horizontal. The average revenue curve for a firm with market control is positively sloped.

The Crystal Ball Of ECONOMIC FORECASTING

How often has this happened to you? You've packed a tasty picnic lunch, donned your spiffy-looking swimwear, loaded up the beach blanket and umbrella, then headed for the artificial waves of the local Happy-Time Gala-World Fun-Land Water Park expecting bright sunshine and warm temperatures. However, upon reaching Happy-Time Gala-World Fun-Land Water Park you find that the economy has fallen into a deep recession, with high unemployment rates and sluggish production, and the owners of the Happy-Time Gala-World Fun-Land Water Park have been forced to turn off the artificial wave machine, dismantle the water slides, and drain the pool. (It's also raining and 50 degrees. We will, however, ignore those problems because this isn't A Pedestrian's Guide to Meteorology.)
