Armed with the knowledge you are gaining from this module week’s summit session, it’s now time for us to apply what we are learning! For this activity, complete four of the five scenario-based problems. Prepare a document to explain your answers and graph your solutions. Make sure to use references in APA format to support your positions.

  1. Joshua’s income increases, while federal taxes increase; therefore, please illustrate by constructing a supply and demand graph, the direction in which the curves will shift and state the new equilibrium price and quantity; for example, state whether price and quantity increased, decreased, or are indeterminate. Please explain your rationale based on the determinants of demand and supply.
  2. Winston is disappointed in the new SUV he recently purchased. He was excited about the new technology incorporated in his SUV but they did not live up to his expectations; therefore, please illustrate by constructing a supply and demand graph, the direction in which the curves will shift and state the new equilibrium price and quantity; for example, state whether price and quantity increased, decreased, or are indeterminate. Please explain your rationale based on the determinants of demand and supply.
  3. Kim is in the market for a new automobile, and since she was just promoted at work, her tastes in higher-end automobiles has increased, but to her surprise taxes have decreased, which make a new automobile more attractive; therefore, please illustrate by constructing a supply and demand graph, the direction in which the curves will shift and state the new equilibrium price and quantity; for example, state whether price and quantity increased, decreased, or are indeterminate. Please explain your rationale based on the determinants of demand and supply.
  4. U.S. agricultural farmers are excited since the government announced an increase in subsidies even though the substitutes for agricultural goods that are imported have increased in demand; therefore, please illustrate by constructing a supply and demand graph, the direction in which the curves will shift and state the new equilibrium price and quantity; for example, state whether price and quantity increased, decreased, or are indeterminate. Please explain your rationale based on the determinants of demand and supply.
  5. Due to advanced technology, substitute goods for higher education have seen an increase in demand. Please illustrate this circumstance by constructing a supply and demand graph, showing the direction in which the curves will shift, and state the new equilibrium price and quantity; for example, state whether price and quantity increased, decreased, or are indeterminate. Please explain your rationale based on the determinants of demand and supply.
