COMPLEMENT-IN-CONSUMPTION: One of two goods that are consumed together to provide satisfaction -- that is, the goods are used jointly to satisfy wants and needs. A complement good is one of two alternatives falling within the other prices determinant of demand. The other is a substitute good. An increase in the price of one complement good causes a decrease in demand for the other. A complement good has a negative cross price elasticity. When the terms complements or complement goods are used, they typically means complement-in-consumption (compare this with complement-in-production). Examples of complement goods are golf clubs and golf balls; hamburgers and french fries; and cars and gasoline. In each case, the two goods "go together." People seldom use or consume one without the other.

YELLOW CHIPPEROON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who would rather spend a day at the shopping mall than anything else under the sun. Family and friends suspect that you might a robot, android, or space alien, because NO ONE can be THAT happy. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching the newspaper want ads wanting to buy either a flower arrangement in a coffee cup for your father or a how-to book on meeting people. Be on the lookout for broken fingernail clippers. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter F, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 321442. Your preferred shopping venue is shopping malls. Your special symbol is the asterisk (*).


Is this You?

As a Yellow Chipperoon, you are happy, happy, happy. You enjoy everything about life and about shopping. You love shopping. You love buying. You love spending. You love to compare products and prices. You love the crowds. You love chatting with the store clerks. You love every bit of the buying process. Nothing dissuades you from having a good time shopping, whether you're buying a box of facial tissues or a new house. Does it get any better than spending an afternoon at the shopping mall? No way!

Scraping Up The POLLUTION

One of Shady Valley's featured factories is Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries. It's the world's leading producer of duct tape -- that shiny, seemingly omnipresent, cloth-like tape that's used for everything EXCEPT ventilation ducts. Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries also employs thousands of voting, taxpaying Shady Valley residents. The amount of campaign money, legal and otherwise, contributed by Mona Mallard herself to Shady Valley politicians is, well, incalculable. All of this means that our little pedestrian exploration through the backlot dumping ground of Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries main production plant puts us on very, VERY sensitive turf. The reason, of course, is that the duct tape plant has been discarding sticky, toxic, gooey junk onto the ground. This is a potentially hazardous situation, not only because this sticky, toxic, gooey junk appears to be leaking into the Shady Valley River, but because a Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries security guard is headed in our direction. Rather than confront this guard, I suggest we spend our time exploring the problems of pollution. RUN!
