EQUILIBRIUM QUANTITY: The quantity exchanged between buyers and sellers when a market is in equilibrium. The equilibrium quantity is simultaneously equal to both the quantity demanded and quantity supplied, which means that there is no shortage nor surplus in the market. This is, in fact, the prime criterion for market equilibrium. If buyers are able to buy all of the good they're willing and able to buy (no shortage) and sellers are able to sell all of the good they're willing and able to sell (no surplus), then neither side of the market is inclined to change the existing terms of trade. And that's equilibrium.

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

Policy perspectives are filled with differing politics and political philosophies.

Reasons for differing views of the 'best' economic policies:

  • First: Human beings are different, with different likes, dislikes, tastes, preferences, values, beliefs, ideologies and opinions. This is the source of differences on what is considered the 'best' for the economy.
  • Second: Human beings often have vested interests in the consequences of the policies. They personally benefit from a policy. While self-interest is okay, the question is whether self-interests of the few prevent greater welfare of the many.

ELASTIC DEMAND

The general demand relation in which relatively small changes in price cause relatively large changes in quantity demanded. Small changes in price cause relatively large changes in quantity demanded or the percentage change in quantity demanded is larger than the percentage change in price. This characterization of elasticity is most important for the price elasticity of demand. Elastic demand is one of two general elasticity relations for demand. The other is inelastic demand.
