That is, for each part, explain whether you expect the equilibrium price of your product to rise or fall AND whether you expect equilibrium quantity to rise or fall.
Also include in your explanation which curve is shifting and which shifter variable is affected.
a)? Your customers? incomes increase.? Be sure to note whether the good or service you are providing is a normal good or an inferior good.
b.? The minimum wage is raised in your area, and you must pay your employees more.? (Assume you have employees for this scenario, even if that was not part of your initial plan.)
