THOSE OTHER FACTORS
Consumer preferences
Become more favorable, demand shifts right
-Scooters, roller blades, huge skateboards, tattoos, iPhones
Become less favorable, demand shifts left
-Hula hoops, kids’ bicycles, pork in light of the H1N1 virus, blackberries
Price (and other) expectations
-Don’t worry about this factor despite the fact that it appears in the textbook
CRUCIAL POINT
The demand curve shows the relationship between P and Qd holding other
factors, such as preferences, incomes, and prices of related goods constant.
If you are given a change in Price, which is the variable on the Y-axis, move
ALONG the Demand curve
This means that if those other factors, which do not appear on either axis are not
constant, there is a new demand relationship
If you are given a change in any of those other factors, SHIFT the Demand
curve.
-The direction depends on the particular case
-The eleventh commandment: Do not shift a demand curve due to a change in
price – EVER
Three Points affect the Demand Curve:
1 / 5
Consumer preference, Prices of related goods: substitutes and complements,
Consumer incomes (must know whether it is a normal or inferior good)
ILLUSTRATIONS
For each case, one has to determine two things
-The market in question
-The change, or event, that has occurred
The response has two parts
-Does the demand curve shift, or does the one move along it
-If the demand shifts, in which direction?
Consider the market for educational services. During the 1970s, it was
possible to obtain a high paying job without a university degree. Nowadays,
it is fairly rare.
Relevance:
-Given the improved career opportunities associated with a degree (Post-
Secondary Education), PREFERENCES for higher education become more
favorable in the 1990s, regardless of tuition.
-Demand increases, or shifts to the right
-At each possible price (tuition level), people are willing and able to buy more
services than before.
-There is a thus new relationship between P and Qd
Consider again the market for educational services. During the 1990s, tuition
rates were greatly increased (except in Quebec)
Relevance:
-Enrollment will fall
-Qd falls, and we move up and along the Demand curve.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
