HOLDING COMPANY: A company (usually a corporation) that owns enough stock in another corporation to exercise virtually complete control over its management. Holding companies often own controlling interest in several diverse corporations, allowing it to engage in diverse activities (some of which might be risky) while limiting its liability should problems arise. While holding companies exist in most types of industries, then tend to be quite popular in banking. Through a holding company, a bank can essentially take part in other financial markets (selling insurance, underwriting securities, or acting as a broker) that are beyond the legal authority of the bank itself.

Lesson 8: Market Shocks | Unit 2: Determinants Page: 4 of 20

Topic: Shifts <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Shifts in the demand curve are originated by changes in the demand determinants and shifts in the supply curve by changes in the supply determinants.

Determinant changes cause shifts:

  • Increase in demand is a rightward shift.
  • Decrease in demand is a leftward shift.
  • Increase in supply is a rightward shift.
  • decrease in supply is a leftward shift.
Note that:
  • An increase in demand and an increase in supply both are rightward shifts.
  • A decrease in demand and a decrease in supply both are leftward shifts.

ELASTICITY ALTERNATIVES

Five categories of elasticity that form a continuum indicating the relative responsiveness of a change in one variable (usually quantity demanded or quantity supplied) to a change in another variable (usually price). These five alternatives--perfectly elastic, relatively elastic, unit elastic, relatively inelastic, and perfectly inelastic--are most often used to categorize the price elasticity of demand and the price elasticity of supply.
