Is the increase in the price of orange juice caused by (a) an increase in the supply of orange juice, (b) a decrease in the supply of orange juice, (c) an increase in the demand for orange juice, or (d) a decrease in the demand for orange juice?
Read the article below and then illustrate this price change with a graph that shows the initial positions of the supply and demand for orange juice and the new positions of the supply and demand curves. (Hint: Only one of the curves has shifted.) There is a link at the bottom of this posting that provides the answer.
