Complete the Supply and Demand Simulation located on the student website.
Write 700 - 1,050-word paper of no more than summarizing the content. Address the following:
• Identify two microeconomics and two macroeconomics principles or concepts from the simulation. Explain why you have categorized these principles or concepts as macroeconomic or microeconomic.
• Identify at least one shift of the supply curve and one shift of the demand curve in the simulation. What causes the shifts?
• For each shift, analyze how it would affect the equilibrium price, quantity, and decision making.
• How may you apply what you learned about supply and demand from the simulation to your workplace or your understanding of a real-world product with which you are familiar?
• How do the concepts of microeconomics help you understand the factors that affect shifts in supply and demand on the equilibrium price and quantity?
• Relating to the simulation, explain how the price elasticity of demand affects a consumer’s purchasing and the firm’s pricing strategy.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Supply and Demand Simulation
Supply and Demand is an economic model of price determination in a market and possibly one of the most fundamental concepts of economics. It is the backbone of a market economy. According to Colander, D. (2010) “Prices are the tool by which the market coordinates individuals’ desires and limits how much people demand. When goods become scarce, the market reduces the quantity people demand; as their prices go up, people buy fewer goods.”
