  • Card 11 / 15:
    Bank runs are often described as “self-fulfilling prophecies.” Why is this phrase appropriate to bank runs?

    The fear and uncertainty created by the suggestion that a bank might fail can lead depositors to withdraw their money. If many depositors do this at the same time, the bank may not be able to meet their demands and will, indeed, fail.

The question is: why is Economic a "science" and not why is economics a "social science?" Alright folks?
Xavier
In my own understanding of why economics is a science it bcz it deals mainly on human resources just like biology that deals in the human body why economics is science it also deals on the management of human resources all over the world bcz without economics there will be no human resources

my response to the earlier question is, economics is a science but not a pure science like biology, chemistry and physics. The reason is that those pure science study inanimate object while economics study human being, their experiment are predictable.
raimi

formula for price elasticity of demand
Emilia Reply
Suppose that a soft drink company calculates that the demand for a bottle of its soda increases from 100 to 110 after the price is cut from $2 to $1.50.
Ali
The price elasticity of demand is calculated as the percentage change in quantity demanded (110 - 100 / 100 = 10%) divided by a percentage change in price ($2 - $1.50 / $2).
Ali
what does unit price mean
Lognyuu Reply

Gyamfua
How do we find unit price?
Gyamfua
divide total cost by total units
Ali
I don't understand the unit Price
global
which one how find or what
Gyamfua
sorry how to find it or what
Gyamfua
please how do we find the unit price
Tabi
unit price or cost is the price per item when you purchase in a bulk
Gyamfua
example assuming you bought a pack of matches is 1gh but the pack contains 10 boxes so the price per the box is called the unit price ie divide 1gh by the number of matches boxes in the pack to get unit price/cost. NB unit here means one so price per 1
Gyamfua
you will divide total cost by total unit
Weto
yes please
Gyamfua
yes, in the matches scenario it's 1gh/10boxes which is equal to 0.10ps so the unit price of the one box of the matches is ten Ghana pesewas
Gyamfua
Thank you I now understand

Given that the price of a product has rose, the demand of the the product will decrease. Thus leads to a downward-sloping demand curve
M_geshnee Reply
The demand of consumers
M_geshnee
No demand curves have différent shapes. For examole guven that price of a product increase, the demand of that product will decrease thus It will lead to a downward sloping curve conversely there can be also a rightward shift in the demand curve when price a the good decrease demand will increase
