PRICE CHANGE, UTILITY ANALYSIS: A disruption of consumer equilibrium identified with utility analysis caused by changes in the price of a good, which likely results in a change in the quantities of the goods consumed. The change in the price alters the marginal utility-price ratio and forces a reevaluation of the rule of consumer equilibrium.

FREE MARKET: A competitive market that is unrestrained by government control or regulations, especially price floors, price ceilings, or taxes. In such a market the forces of demand and supply eliminate any shortages and surpluses move the market to the equilibrium price and quantity. If the free market is competitive (with large numbers of buyers and sellers) and is not infected with other market failures, such as externalities, then equilibrium price results with equality between the demand price and the supply price. This means that equilibrium is also efficient.
