As Simple As Possible

Economic science simplified to a 3-variable equation.

1. Prices can only go up if demand increases, or supply decreases. Like rising gas prices.

2. Prices can only go down if demand decreases, or supply increases. Like falling gas prices.

Q.E.D.

Supply and demand are usually measured in physical units for retail products, like the number of gallons, barrels, pints, cars, CDs, books, iPods, computers, DVDs, shirts, shoes, houses, etc.
