Supply & Demand AND ITS EFFECT ON THE MARKETPLACE

 

Supply and demand is taught in schools as one of the most basic economic concepts. As soon as children can learn about currency and its relation to goods and services, they are next taught the demands of the market.  These  demands  completely  control  the supply  of  goods  and  services  that  companies and corporations create on a massive scale. The matriarch and patriarch of the international marketplace, supply and demand are the controlling factors of almost everything in
