Eco 200: turkeys

(individual) If the supply of turkeys in a particular November turned out to be unusually small, do you think a turkey shortage would result? Why or why not?

There would be a shortage of turkeys available at previous years' prices. However, there is no shortage as consumers will turn to (easily substitutable) alternatives such as ham as prices rise. All who were wanting to pay the going rate would get one, and by definition, there would be no shortage.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
