which in turn, creates jobs and adds value to society as a whole. Likewise, a decrease in taxes benefits the middle and upper class households by providing additional funds to spend, thus, placing money back into the economy. Contrary to this, a large decrease in taxes would create a lack of available funds needed to support crucial government agencies and pay back government debts and treasury bonds. Decreasing taxes would also negatively impact the funds available for programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and Healthcare Reform. (Tax, 2015)

Supply and Demand
Goodlife Management was the only firm in Atlantis that rented apartments. This gave Goodlife Management an advantage in the housing market. Detached rental homes owned by Oakridge Builders were the closest substitute to the apartment rentals. Without a substitute for rental housing in the Atlantis area, Goodlife Management maintained a monopoly in this market. Many factors cause changes to the supply and demand of a product or service. Companies need to make adjustments to pricing, supply, and demand to reach the equilibrium.
With a vacancy rate of 28% Goodlife Management made the decision to lower the rental rates decreasing the vacancy rate

The supply and demand was affected by decreasing the rent to lower the vacancy percentage and maximize revenue for the company. This moved is considered a temporary fix on a month-to-month basis and a good example of microeconomics. Another example of microeconomics is when the new company came into town and caused an increased in the population along an increased in the job market.

Economic Terms and Health Care History
November 28, 2011
There are many terms that are used in Healthcare History, some of which have been used since the beginning of time and some that have been adapted over the years with the never ending changes in healthcare. In the next few paragraphs we will learn when these terms began and where they take place. When one learns the history of healthcare and the fundamentals of the economic terms they are able to better understand just how the system works. The terms that we will learn about in the paper are as follows: economics, supply and demand, microeconomics, macroeconomics, elasticity, inelasticity

factors that will affect if they are going to go for that third plate. First thing would be that they aren’t going to enjoy that second plate as much as the first, so it wouldn’t want to make them go for a third plate. The second factor would be by the time they finish that second plate most people get full. If they serve themselves that third plate, while being full they are not going to get anymore satisfaction from the meal. So yes, restaurants do gain profit from all you-can-eat buffets.

Economics is “a social science that studies how individuals, governments, firms, and nations make choices on allocating scarce resources to satisfy unlimited wants.” Economics is broken down into microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics analyzes how firms and households make decisions about how they should spend their money respectively. Microeconomics focuses on a smaller scale, hence the prefix micro-. It looks at the basic economic theory of supply and demand which tells businesses how much of a certain product they should produce, and how much they should be charging for it. Macroeconomics on the other hand studies the whole

Macroeconomics (from Greek prefix "macr(o)-" meaning "large" + "economics") is a branch of economics dealing with the performance, structure, behavior, and decision-making of the entire economy. This includes a national, regional, or global economy. With microeconomics, macroeconomics is one of the two most general fields in economics.
Macroeconomists study aggregated indicators such as GDP, unemployment rates, and price indices to understand how the whole economy functions. Macroeconomists develop models that explain the relationship between such factors as national income, output, consumption, unemployment, inflation, savings, investment, international trade and international

Supply and Demand of Personal Computers
Today almost all households have a personal computer. The majority of households have multiple personal computers. In all the developed nations across the world, this is the norm. It is common to have one desktop computer and several additional laptops within the household. Twenty years ago, this was definitely not the norm. From 1995 to 2015, the price of a personal computer had decreased significantly due to the advancement of technology. Two of the basic principles of microeconomics are supply and demand. As the supply of a product rises to be greater than the demand, the price of the particular product decreases (Applications of Demand and

These are not the only factors but some of these factors include; price of inputs, technology, expectations, and taxes and subsidies. “Microeconomic analysis is the foundation of most of the more specialized branches of economics today. These branches include labor economics, which applies supply-and-demand theory to employers and employees, and international economics, which considers supply and demand as it relates to trade between nations” (Detroit: Gale, 2008).

a preferred product for another that will yield the same result. Sugar for example, has substitutes such as Stevia or Splenda, which are artificial sweeteners. Complement products are products that are combined and add value to each other. Shaving cream for example, is a complement to razors because they both work in conjunction to meet the consumers demand. Without shaving cream it would be difficult to shave. Demand for products and services have a direct effect on price, and changes in price affect demand. Elasticity is best defined by curves that depict change in price and quantity. When a curve is more elastic small changes in price create large changes in quantity. When a curve is less elastic, large changes in price affect quantity.

As the definition of the term indicates, in order to be considered an oligopoly, there are to be only a small number of producers. More specifically, the structure calls for “a few large producers”.2 The textbook, Microeconomics by McConnell, Brue, Flynn and Barbiero goes on to indicate that any industry which uses the term Big Three, Big Four, etc. would be considered an oligopoly. The Canadian banking industry is well known by the “Big 5” banks: RBC (Royal Bank of Canada), TD (Toronto-Dominion Bank), Scotiabank (Bank of Nova Scotia), BMO (Bank of Montreal) and CIBC (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce).

A budget is generally a list of all planned expenses and revenues. It is a plan for saving and spending. A budget is an important concept in microeconomics, which uses a budget line to illustrate the trade-offs between two or more goods. In other terms, a budget is an organisational plan stated in financial terms. The purpose of budgeting is to provide a forecast of revenues and expenditures i.e. construct a model of how our business might perform financially speaking if certain strategies, events and plans are carried out. Also it enables the actual financial operation of the business to be measured against the forecast.

And supply is
The 20-percent increase in demand means that the new demand is 120 percent of the original demand, so the new demand is
Q ́D =1.2QD
Q ́D =1.2(18–3P)=21.6–3.6P.
The new equilibrium is where Q ́D equals the original supply: 21.6 – 3.6P = - 6 + 9P
The new equilibrium price is P* = $2.19 per pound. An increase in demand of 20 percent, therefore, increases price by 19 cents per pound, or 9.5 percent.
