  • Card 9 / 16:
    Explain how a tariff reduction causes an increase in the equilibrium quantity of imports and a decrease in the equilibrium price. Hint: Consider the Work It Out "Effects of Trade Barriers."

    This is the opposite case of the Work It Out feature. A reduced tariff is like a decrease in the cost of production, which is shown by a downward (or rightward) shift in the supply curve.

distinguish between microeconomics and macroeconomics
Yash Reply
Microeconomics is just study about a small market or can say as single market. While Macroeconomics is study of the entire economy of country or the whole market. Example: Sales of Toyota Vios is consider as Microeconomics which is under the work of Microeconomist.
But if you wanna to know about the entire sales market of Toyota car series then it belongs to Macroeconomics and it will be the work of Macroeconomist
Micro studies the behavior of individuals and Firm in making decisions regarding the allocation of Scarce resources & the interactions among these individuals and firms. while macro is the study of the sum total of economic activity, dealing with the issues of growth & inflation & unemployment

what is the difference between positive economics and normative economics
Ritesh Reply
positive economics is not the value judgement but normative economics is known as the value judgement.
positive economics only describes the economic phenomenon as it is. normative economics, beside describing phenomenon also suggest a solution to it
is there only one difference between positive and normative economics

what is a law of demand?
Lydia Reply
its the relationship between price and quantity demanded, they are related conversely. As the price of a good increases, the quantity demanded will decrease and as price decreases the quantity demanded increases (all other factors remaining constant).
thank you Ligia I know understand.
A demand curve shows the relationship between the price and the quantity demanded... how about the supply curve?
Also shows the relationship between price and quantity supply... At higher price, quantity supply increases and vice versa... All other things being equal.
It's shows an in inverse relationship between the price n quantity demand made by individual in a given period of time
