Model of Supply and Demand

http://ingrimayne.saintjoe.edu/econ/DemandSupply/OverviewSD.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: When people's actions are based on self-interest, people respond to incentives, that is, to costs and benefits. When the costs of an activity are raised or the benefits reduced, people do less of the activity. Economists have found that they can use this simple idea of action based on costs and benefits to construct a model (or theory) that explains how many markets work. This model, the model of supply and demand, is perhaps the most basic of the models economists use to explain the world around us. Standards 12.2.4 and 12.2.5

Did Price Controls Work?

http://www.mises.org/fullstory.asp?control=969

Rating: 2, High!

Description: One of the justifications for socialism and interventionism has been that some commodities simply are "too important to leave to the market." Thus, the New York Times, certainly no friend to free markets, recently editorialized about California and the Enron affair: "It is Washington's duty to find out why (electricity markets melted down in California), and to devise the necessary safeguards. Electricity is a public necessity that must be managed wisely, not entrusted blindly to the market." Standard 12.2.6 economics

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
