Part of the reason that new car manufacturers can choose to maintain prices on their new cars (and adjust market share instead) is that a manufacturer arguably has market power in the sale of a particular car. This means that the manufacturer should consider the elasticity of demand for that car before reducing prices.

Chapter 20  Agriculture: Economics and policy. In this chapter, we start by looking at the economics of agriculture, investigating the elasticity of demand and price trends of agricultural goods. We will then examine reasons that the farming industry has been declining, using supply and demand analysis to explain this as well as the repercussions of the changes in the market. We will also discuss the types and outcomes of government intervention and recent changes in farm policy.
