a. “As the price of oranges rises, the demand for oranges falls, ceteris paribus.” Explain.
b. “The price of a bushel of wheat was $3.00 last month and $2.50 today. The demand curve for wheat must have shifted leftward between last month and today.” Discuss.
c. Some goods are bought largely because they have ‘snob appeal.’ For example, the residents of Beverly Hills gain prestige by buying expensive items. In fact, they would not buy some items unless they are expensive.

The following rules apply in Beverly Hills: high prices buy; low prices, don’t buy.” Do you agree? Discuss.
