Price Elasticity of Demand

Short excerpt:

The principles of demand and supply help in making predictions about the buying and the selling behaviors of individuals as well as firms. A rise in the price of any particular product would lead to a decrease in the quantity demanded of that product, considering that it is not a necessity product. Individuals would not buy the product as they used to and the quantity demanded will fall whilst the firms would supply more of the product i.e. the supply curve will move to the right. In the case above, if the demand for corn increases, there would be a shift in the demand curve to the right. Consequently there would be a decrease in demand for soybean, thereby a reduction in the demand for soybean.
