Amazing facts in Economics


NOTABLE POINTS IN Economics

The law of supply states that:

The quantity of the supplied services or goods will increase as the price increases and they will decrease as the price decreases provided all other factors remain constant.

These constant factors are very important when stating the supply law. They include:

  • The price of Input resources

  • The kind of technology used during production

  • The number of suppliers

  • The number of buyers; and so on.

 

A graph that shows the relationship between the price of a product or service, and its quantity supplied is the supply curve.

Supply curve can be defined as a graphical representation of the direct relationship between the prices of goods and services and the quantity supplied (of such goods and services) within a particular period of time provided all other factors remain constant.

The above table shows us what a scale of preference would look like.

A scale of preference can be defined as the list of a person's needs or wants written in an order of importance.

You will observe that the person puts his most important needs or wants at the top of the list. Further down the list are his less important needs.

Now, let's imagine that this individual has 170,000 Naira to spend. According to the above scale of preference, the followings can be deduced;

  • A phone will be considered to be the most important; and it costs 50,000. He buys the phone.

  • A console game according to this person is next in importance; and it costs 120,000. He buys the console game.

Another question worth asking is:

  • What happens to his other needs?

This is where the term 'Opportinity Cost comes into play.
