JOINT DEMAND: Demand for two or more commodities that are either complements-in-consumption or complements-in-production. Joint demand results because two or more commodities are used together either to satisfy wants and needs or to produce goods and services. Because the commodities are used jointly, the demand for one good is necessarily based on the use and availability of another good. If, for example, you enjoy milk and brownies as complements-in-consumption, but the bakery is out of brownies, then your demand for milk is also likely to decline.

RED AGGRESSERINE
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who loves getting the best of others, whether it be a market exchange, a sporting event, or an all-you-can-eat buffet. Family and friends look to you as a leader and pillar of strength, or at least they should. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching infomercials wanting to buy either handcrafted decorations to hang on your walls or throw pillows for your bed. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter C, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 882679. Your preferred shopping venue is auctions. Your special symbol is the ampersand (&).


Is this You?

As a Red Aggresserine, you are somewhat audacious and quite assertive, extremely competitive and a bit vindictive. You take no prisoners when it comes to market negotiations. For you, the thrill is in the competition. You enjoy the challenge of getting the most for the least and will do all you can to come out on top. You live for the hunt, the chase, the transaction. Your adrenaline is triggered by the thoughts of economic victory.


This isn't me! What am I?
MARKET CLEARING

A condition of the market in which the quantity demanded is equal to the quantity supplied, such that the market is "clear" of any shortage or surplus. Market clearing is a common, non-technical term for equilibrium. In a market graph, the market clearing is found at the intersection of the demand curve and the supply curve.

Fact 4: Our Monopolized Markets

Our pedestrian's jaunt through the economy is not, unfortunately, an unrestrained shopping spree for confectioneries, spark plug tools, and Houston, Texas. We have other important errands to run. At the moment we need to hike over to Shady Valley's exclusive provider of cable television services, the Merciless Monolithic Media Masters Cable Television Company, Inc., to inquire about a mysterious fee that appeared last month's bill.

The good news is that the Merciless Monolithic Media Masters (the 4M people) Cable office is a mere 2 miles (3 kilometers for the metrically inclined) from the Shady Valley Central Town Sprawling Hills Shopping Mall. A hop, skip, and a moderately long jump later, our excursion through the economy takes us to the front door of the 4M Cable Television Company where I hope to discover why last month's cable bill included a $3,569 charge for something called "The Vacation Channel." I didn't even know I had a vacation channel. (But, I'm sure it's a great channel, and if I don't have it, then I will certainly subscribe. Please don't disconnect me.)

Of course, because this an afternoon workday, the doors of the 4M office are locked. I can almost make out, through the expensive stained glass windows, what appears to be several Merciless Monolithic Media Masters Cable Television employees, with champaign bottles in hand, dancing on expensive mahogany desks. Let's not disturb them. As they say in the cable business, an upset worker is a disconnected customer.
