This simple commonsense idea that people will be willing and able to buy more of a good or service at low prices than at high prices is a fundamental economic principle, the law of demand, which is usually stated as follows: price and quantity demanded are negatively related, all other things equal. This means that when price goes up, quantity demanded goes down, and vice versa. We can place the information from Table 1-2 into a graph of demand, illustrated in Figure 1-3. A graph of demand is referred to as a demand curve (even though demand curves are often drawn as straight lines).
We can easily imagine infinite combinations of all the goods and services that an economy can potentially produce. We cannot graph these infinite combinations, however, because our graphs have only two axes. So, bread and roses simply represent one of an infinite set of choices. We can make our graph a bit more realistic by redefining the axes. We might redefine the horizontal axis as staple goods and the vertical axis as luxury goods. Or we could divide our economy’s output into agricultural goods and manufactured goods, or consumer goods (goods that are purchased by consumers) and capital goods (goods such as factory buildings and machinery that are used to produce other goods).
The marketplace sifts out those with lesser preferences or lesser ability to afford the product, and the market thus serves as an allocating mechanism. High prices also encourage producers to offer more for sale. In many ways, this function of market prices is desirable. Prices encourage thrift and careful choices among competing goods. Goods and services are allocated to those most willing to pay. Thus, the market is an effective allocative device. Without prices, products might go to people who do not strongly desire them and thus be wasted.
