    20. 20. Shifting Demand and Supply Curves<br />Suppose that an increase in the demand for a particular good arises. What happens to equilibrium?<br />Demand increases shifting the demand curve up, out, and to the right.<br />At the original equilibrium price, excess demand exists in the market.<br />Buyers will drive up the price to outbid other buyers for this shortage.<br />As the price rises, quantity supplied rises.<br />The price and quantity will continue to rise until equilibrium is reached.<br />In a free market, the equilibrium price will adjust rather quickly.<br />
