Description

Elasticity is the concept where economics meet with business strategy in terms of pricing. How do companies decide about which price point to implement? How do policy makers decide how much tax they should put on a product or service? or even whether to implement any interdiction or not? Elasticity is the key concept of economics whether it is for a micro setting or a macro setting as well as the pricing, one of the most important business decisions.

  • "Price Elasticity of Demand", 
  • "Price Elasticity of Supply" and

1. Price Elasticity of Demand:  You will learn what Price Elasticity of Demand (PED) is, how to calculate PED with two formulas, the factors affecting PED and other demand elasticities.

2.Price Elasticity of Supply:  You will learn what Price Elasticity of Supply (PES) is, how to calculate PES with two formulas, the factors affecting PES..

3. The business aspect of Price Elasticity: You'll learn the reasons why business need to know their products' or services' elasticity, how they use Price Elasticity in sales forecasting and pricing and non-pricing strategies as well as  the relationship between elasticity, total reveue, cost and tax incidence, the  business aspect of other price elasticities and the common mistakes that managers make with price elasticity.

As a bonus, I also include a full PDF notes document that summarizes all the major points we go over in the course as well as articles.
