Goat meat producers are struggling to keep up with demand as consumers turn to alternative meats, and a dwindling supply due to the drought sees prices jump to record levels. Prices remain at $9-10 per kilo, after over-the-hook prices hit an all-time high of $10.30 per kilo carcase weight in May this year. Meat and Livestock Australia's Julie Petty said last time they saw a significant price spike was in 2017 at $7.50 but current prices were unprecedented. "For a producer, if you do have animals that are ready to be sent to market it's an excellent price to be receiving for these animals," Ms Petty said. However, she explained the drought and tough seasonal conditions forced many producers to destock their properties some time ago, which led to a reduced supply. "We are seeing increased strong demand on both the international and domestic market," she said. Goat Industry Council Australia's Campbell McPhee said, as the world market was screaming out for more of Australia's goat meat, he hoped it encouraged people to invest in the industry. "Domestically there has certainly been an increase of consumption of goat meat and people are looking for an alternative meat." Your task: Use the demand and supply model (including a diagram or diagrams) to support an explanation of why the price of goat meat has recently reached an all-time high according to this excerpt.

  • The price of raw sugar recently reached its highest level since 1981 due to problems with supply. Historically, raw sugar has traded at between 10 and 12 US cents per pound at the New York Board of Trade. But the price increased to over 18 cents last month. Growing demand in Brazil for sugar to be turned into ethanol for fuel, coupled with a sharp fall in Indian production have both been factors in the price increase. Sugar production in India for 2008-09 fell 45% year-on-year due to less rain in the monsoon season damaging a number of agricultural crops.   Explain, using supply and demand analysis, why the price of sugar has been increasing recently. Do you think a) the supply and b) the demand for sugar is price elastic or inelastic? Justify your choices and explain whether this means any given change in supply or demand will have a bigger effect on the equilibrium price of quantity. In what ways is the market for sugar used in confectionery related to the market for ethanol?

  • Recently, the spot market price of U.S. hot rolled steel plummeted to $400 per ton. Just one year ago, this same ton of steel cost $700. According to Metals Monitor, the drop in price was due to falling oil prices, along with a rise in cheap imports and excess capacity. These dramatic market changes have greatly impacted the supply of raw steel. Suppose that last year the supply for raw steel was QSraw = 600 + 4P, but this year it has shifted to QSraw= 4,200 + 4P. Assuming the market for raw steel is competitive and that the current worldwide demand for steel isQdraw = 9,000 – 8P, compute the equilibrium price and quantity for the steel market one year ago, and the equilibrium price–quantity combination for the current steel mar ket. Suppose the cost function of a representative steel producer is C(Q) = 1,200 + 15Q2. Compare the change in the quantity of raw steel exchanged at the market level with the change in raw steel produced by a representative firm. How do you explain this…
    Florida, like several other states, has passed a law that prohibits “price gouging” immediately before, during, or after the declaration of a state of emergency. Price gouging is defined as “…selling necessary commodities such as food, gas, ice, oil, and lumber at a price that grossly exceeds the average selling price for the 30 days prior to the emergency.” Many consumers attempt to stock up on emergency supplies, such as bottled water, immediately before and after a hurricane or other natural disaster hits an area. Also, many supply shipments to retailers are interrupted during a natural disaster.Assuming that the law is strictly enforced, what are the economic effects of the price gouging statute? Explain carefully.

  • The price of bauxite increased to its highest level due to conditions which impacted supply. Historically, bauxite has traded at between 1500 and 1600 USD per tonne. But the price increased to over 1900 USD in November 2020. Growing demand in Canada for bauxite to be turned into aluminium, coupled with a sharp fall in Jamaican production have both been factors in the price increase. Bauxite production in Jamaica for 2017-18 fell 65% year-on-year due to flood conditions causing damages as well as increased competition. The London Metal Exchange predicts that global consumption of bauxite is likely to be greater than production by 20 million tonnes next year. In the US, companies in the steel and petrol industry have put pressure on the US government to relax import controls, warning that otherwise they might run out of bauxite. Commentators predict that most steel and petrol producers will be unaffected because bauxite is such a small part of their spending.   Illustrate the…
