SUPPLY AND DEMAND
For a simple introduction to the concepts of supply and demand, take a look at these animated videos from Professors Alex Tabarrok and Tyler Cowen of George Mason University. These videos will give you the basics of both the demand and supply curves:
Tabarrok, A. & Cowen, T. (2015) The demand curve. Marginal Revolution University.
Tabarrok, A. & Cowen, T. (2015) The supply curve. Marginal Revolution University.
