1. I think markets determine prices and quantity of production by looking at the supply and demand. When price is low, demand is high, but supply would be lower. Now, when price is high, demand is low, and supply is higher. In markets, there is a wish to find equilibrium in the market. This is when supply and demand are in balance in the market. A market can fail on meeting people’s needs when the market is not in equilibrium. This can result in a shortage of supply. When demand is too high and the production level, or supply, is very low, a shortage comes about. This can be seen when taking a look at the beginning of the pandemic. When everything first started going on lockdown and the pandemic started, a lot of cleaning supplies was in high demand. I’m sure everyone remembers when so many people tried to get toilet paper, cleaning wipes, and hand sanitizer but there were low amounts to be found. The demand for these products were so high and companies were not able to keep up with it. During this time, there was no equilibrium in the market, so the supply and demand was not balanced, and the markets were failing to meet people’s needs. 
2. Market prices are determined by demand and supply. This is the current price for an item or service that is bought or sold to consumers. A lot of people take advantage of inflation or scarce items to profit from these two. For example, when the Russian and Ukraine war began we saw a large hit to our gas prices. Slowly the prices began going up, also considering that we were coming out of a pandemic. Sellers in the marketplace compete against suppliers to sell their products and buyers compete with all the other buyers to obtain these products. 
Every company has a product they specialize in that they produce for the consumer population. Market failure occurs when private or public companies cannot provide or produce the products. We have seen this happen plenty of times in the marketplace. For example, during the pandemic, we saw this happen with masks and Lysol products. Most companies and even small businesses began producing masks which made it easier to get a hold of. With the cleaning products, it was a different story. Many people began watching videos on how to make their own solutions because of the scarcity of these items. This is a  prime example of market failure not meeting people’s needs.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
