General Equilibrium Analysis

Market Adjustment to Changes in Demand

 FIGURE 12.2  Adjustment in an Economy with Two Sectors

Initially, demand for X shifts from DX to DX. This shift pushes the price of X up to PY creating profits.

Demand for Y shifts down from DY to DY, pushing the price of Y down to PY and creating losses.

Firms have an incentive to leave sector Y and an incentive to enter sector X.

Exiting sector Y shifts supply in that industry to SY, raising price and eliminating losses. Entry shifts supply in X to SX thus reducing and eliminating profits.
