Course Conclusion

In this course, we've discussed fundamental concepts in economics. Let's recap.

Supply and demand together determine market equilibrium. On a graph, market equilibrium is the point where the supply and demand curves intersect. The price at this intersection is the equilibrium price and the quantity is the equilibrium quantity. When the market for good or service is in equilibrium, there are no surpluses and no shortages.

As buyers and sellers interact, the market will trend toward equilibrium quantity and equilibrium price. It's as if an invisible hand pushes and pulls markets toward equilibrium levels.
