Price Controls

http://ingrimayne.saintjoe.edu/econ/AllocatingRationing/PriceCeilings.html

Rating: 2, High!

Description: Price controls are believed by many to help consumers, but whether they actually do is open to doubt. Consider, for example, rent controls, a popular form of a price ceiling. If the demand curve and the short-run supply curves are inelastic, then a sizable drop in rents may result in a very small shortage. The benefits to consumers will, in the judgment of most, clearly outweigh the costs to the consumers. Further, the short-run supply of housing should be quite inelastic because apartment buildings take time to build and even longer to wear out. Standard 12.2.6 economics and 12.9.1 civics
