In this assignment, you will be applying the reading and research you have done to answer questions dealing with various aspects of supply, demand, and equilibrium. This is a multi-part assignment, so make sure that you have addressed each question or topic. The best way to approach this assignment is to prepare your responses in outline form following the order of each question/topic. This will help you keep track of your responses.
Address the following in an essay or short-answer form:
