# What is meant by price consumption curve?

## What is meant by price consumption curve?

The price consumption curve shows the quantity of goods a consumer is able to purchase when the price of the good changes. Hence, It not only helps in indifference curve analysis but also indicates the elasticity of the goods involved.

## What is price consumption curve describe the various types of curve with illustration?

Price-consumption curve is a graph that shows how a consumer’s consumption choices change when price of one of the goods changes. It is plotted by connecting the points at which budget line touches the relevant maximum-utility indifference curve.

What is the relationship between price consumption curve and price elasticity of demand?

It is possible to determine whether an individual’s demand curve for a commodity is elastic, unitary elastic or inelastic directly from the slope of the PCC. We know that the PED (Ep) is given by the percentage change in the quantity demanded of a good divided by the percentage change in its price, a, at par.

How does price level influence consumption?

A sharp increase in stock prices increases the real wealth of most households.

• Consumers decide that a recession is ahead and that their incomes are likely to fall.
• The price level falls.

Downward Sloping PCC

• How does an increase in price affect the demand curve?

Drawing a Demand Curve. The demand curve is based on the demand schedule.

• Shifts in the Curve. Shifts in the demand curve are strictly affected by consumer interest.
• Example of a Shift in the Demand Curve. Assume that the price of a complementary good – peanut butter – decreases.
• Movements Along the Demand Curve.
