Supply and Demand

Purpose of Assignment -

The purpose of this assignment is to analyze how an event will influence the market equilibrium.
Background: Suppose the weather in Florida was extremely cold one winter. This event would affect the market for coffee in Florida, causing the demand curve to shift to the right. Remember an event that changes the demand for a product shifts the demand curve to the right. Likewise, a decrease in the supply of a product shifts the supply curve to the left. Review the Figures 10-12 on pp. 79, 80, & 82 for illustrations of these different shifts.
