Supply and Demand

by Linda Crotta Brennan

Illustrations by Rowan Barnes-Murphy

Part of a Series: Simple Economics.

A fictional story about two children’s lemonade stand provides the context for this easy-to-grasp introduction to the law of supply and demand. As circumstances change in the park where their stand is located, Mia and Tomás raise and lower the price of their lemonade, and the reader learns about topics such as competition, added value, and equilibrium. Each concept is approached intuitively through the narrative, then explained clearly in a fact box. Key terms are bolded and defined in a glossary. Additional back matter includes recommended reading, a link to a Web-site list updated by the publisher, and an index.
