Classroom Activity to Accompany the Supply and Demand Infographic
The concept of supply and demand is often considered the heart and soul of economics. It is the foundation for much of what is studied in the field, and understanding how supply and demand affect the economy can help us to recognize economics everywhere in our daily lives. (The British classical economist J.R. McCulloch is attributed with the famous saying that you can make a parrot an economist if you only teach it to say "supply and demand.") The supply and demand infographic highlights basic concepts such as the laws of supply and demand, changes in demand and supply versus changes in the quantity demanded and the quantity supplied, the determinants of demand and supply, and market equilibrium.
