INDETERMINANT: The term commonly used to indicate that the direction of the change in either price or quantity is not known when the market experiences simultaneous shifts in both the demand and supply curves. For example, an increase in both demand and supply definitely increases the quantity exchanged. But whether the market price increases or decreases is indeterminant.

  • Price controls take one of two forms -- price ceiling and price floor:

  • A price ceiling is a legally mandated maximum price imposed on a market. Buyers and sellers are prevented from exchanging the good at any price above the legal maximum.
  • A price floor is a legally mandated minimum price imposed on a market. Buyers and sellers are prevented from exchanging the good at any price below the legal minimum.
  • Both types of price controls tend to be more effective for inelastic demand and supply

The essence of the scientific method is to test, or verify, hypotheses against real world data. If supported by data over and over again, a hypothesis becomes a principle.
