  • How a demand curve can be derived from a demand schedule by plotting the price/quantity pairs, and how the negative slope of this demand curve also reflects the law of demand.
  • Demand space as the area beneath a demand curve and that the demand price on the demand curve is the upper limit of buyers' demand space.

PRICE LEVEL

The average of the prices of goods and services produced in the aggregate economy. In a theoretical sense, the price level is the price of aggregate production. In a practical sense, the price level is commonly measured by either of two price indexes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) or the GDP price deflator. The CPI is the price index widely publicized in the media and used by the general public. The GDP price deflator, in contrast, is less well-known, but is usually the price index of choice among economists. The inflation rate is calculated as the percentage change in the price level.
