Semester immer noch nicht verstanden hatte, habe ich nun mit Hilfe dieses Kurses geschafft. Die wissenschaftlichen Bücher mit ihren knappen Erläuterungen sind schwer zu durchdringen.

Hier wird alles wichtige und relevante, ohne was auszulasen, in Angriff genommen. Nun versteht man auch die Lehrbücher und man sieht und merkt wie undidaktisch diese gestaltet sind: Schulnote 6 würde es treffender bezeichnen. Bin sehr zufrieden mit diesem Kurs und das Geld hat sich mehr gelohnt, als in irgedein Lehrbuch zu investieren oder Nachhilfe zu nehmen.

Soft drinks at fast food places are a good way of explaining this concept because many of the most die-hard fanatics will begrudgingly accept their competitor's option. Without knowing it, you make these sorts of substitutions daily, but they are very interesting to economists. Say you're in line at the sandwich place and your preferred brand of chips is absent. If you choose an option that is cheaper for the shop to stock, the company may decide to move towards phasing out the more expensive chips.

By examining the marginal rate of substitution, producers can help to cut their costs substantially. But what if consumers don't react well? Say that you were the owner of a college bar where the majority of your customers had a very defined preference for a certain type of beer.

It's expensive to supply, so you decide that, since many college students just treat beer as beer, it won't be a big deal to replace that beer with a cheaper option. Unfortunately for your bar, your customers can, and they miss the old stuff. The establishment next door takes the hint, advertises that it sells the beer that you discarded, and even raises its prices to be able to make a bigger profit.

All the while, the best chicken fingers in town can't save you. Substitutions are not always so clear cut as one drink for another.

Again, here is where utility comes into play. Without getting too personal, chances are that you stock a higher grade of toilet paper in your home bathroom than most schools or colleges do in their restrooms. No doubt you pay more for that toilet paper because, for a lot of reasons I won't go into here, toilet paper has a higher utility for you than it does for an institution. Producers seize upon this, advertising their product with cute lovable bears.

Be assured that such advertising does not fill the pages of supply catalogs for institutional toilet paper purchasers. Instead, price and quantity are the driving forces for the facilities management purchase of toilet paper. Their job is simply to stock the stuff in order to meet health codes -- they have no utility in making sure that it was quilted by imaginary grandmothers. All of that goes to say that, despite 3, sheets of industrial toilet paper and sheets of quilted toilet paper being the same price, the consumer will substitute the 3, sheets for sheets of 'the good stuff.

In this lesson, we learned about the marginal rate of substitution , or the rate at which a person will replace one good with another.

Using the example of soda in fast food places, we saw that this can be a very high percentage. But we also saw that other goods that invoke an emotional response, such as toilet paper, can have a very low percentage, or rate of substitution. Likewise, we saw how this information is useful to business owners looking to cut costs, as long as they're able to recognize the marginal rate of substitution among their clients.
