Transcript

  • 1. EPF10 develop consumer skills
  • 2.  The value of a worker’s skills and knowledge in the marketplace is impacted by supply and demand. The prices for goods and services in the marketplace are determined by supply and demand.
  • 3.  Workers who invest in their own human capital generally become more productive. Productive workers lower the cost of production, thus employers seek to hire the more productive workers. Workers with more knowledge and skill generally earn more than unskilled workers. The demand for workers is derived from the demand for the goods and services they make. When demand for a good or service falls, demand for the workers who produce the good or service falls; when demand for a good or service rises, demand for workers does too. An increase in the supply of workers with a specific skill tends to decrease their wages, while a limited supply of such workers tends to increase wages.
  • 4.  According to the law of demand, people buy more at lower prices and less at higher prices. All else being equal, prices rise with an increase in demand and fall when demand decreases. Demand is affected by non- price factors such as changes in the number of consumers, consumer income, taste, expectations, and the price of related goods (i.e., complements and substitutes). Prices fall with an increase in supply and rise with a decrease in supply. Supply is affected by changes in the number of suppliers, cost of production, technology, expectations, government policies, and catastrophic events (e.g., hurricanes, wars).
