Featured Activity

Supply and demand

This activity is a digital take on the experiments conducted by Chamberlin (1948) and Smith (1962).

Students are assigned roles of buyers or sellers, and given price limits. They trade by making offers or accepting the offers of others.

Immediately after, numerous interactive charts are available to analyse the data generated and confirm whether an efficient outcome was achieved, as predicted by the theory!

An interactive explainer is also available for this topic.
