SPATIAL DIFFERENTIATION: The notion that economic activity is not evenly dispersed across the land. That is, goods, services, resources, production, and consumption are more concentrated at some locations and less concentrated at other locations due to natural endowments and human activity. The result is that no two location points have exactly the same access to inputs or outputs. This is a fundamental principle underlying the study of urban and regional economics and implies that firms and households must include transportation cost and location in production and consumption decisions.

ORANGE REBELOON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who could be the poster child for the phrase "rebel without a cause," but doing so would be selling out. Family and friends never seem to ask you for fashion advice, and rightfully so. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a garage sale trying to buy either several orange mixing bowls or clothing for your pet dog. Be on the lookout for strangers with large satchels of used undergarments. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter W, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 276673. Your preferred shopping venue is flea markets. Your special symbol is the backslash (\).


Is this You?

As an Orange Rebeloon, you are very much the rebel and the contrarian. It is your nature to go against the grain. When everyone else is buying, you sell. When everyone else is selling, you buy. You go against the trends. You disdain fashion. If it's hot, you're not. You would march to your own drummer and dance to your own tune, if doing so wasn't so trite and conventional.


This isn't me! What am I?
INELASTIC DEMAND

Large changes in price cause relatively small changes in quantity demanded or the percentage change in quantity demanded is smaller than the percentage change in price. This characterization of elasticity is most important for the price elasticity of demand. Inelastic demand is one of two general elasticity relations for demand. The other is elastic demand.

Shopping Around For RETAIL PRICES

It's time for another one of our frequent stops at Mr. Market Super Food Discount Store, this time to check out the story behind retail prices. As consumers, we spend a large fraction of our nonworking, nonsleeping lives wandering grocery stores aisles, searching clothing store racks, and surveying department store displays for the right product at the right price. How do we know, like the name of the long-running game show, if "The Price is Right?" How are retail prices set and do they really tell us the value of a product?
