Report Task

     i.        Use diagrams to describe in detail how a market determines the price of a product.

    ii.        Apply these theoretical principles by selecting an existing product to assess how and for what reasons the price of your chosen product might change.

  iii.        Briefly speculate as to the most likely impact of future changes in the price of your chosen product – providing a reasoned argument for your forecast. 


  • You may find it useful to think about this question in separate but related parts;
  • To begin with you will need describe the theory of how a market works. This means that you must identify and use all the appropriate key terms and concepts to describe the functioning of a market and how an equilibrium price is established.
  • Select a product (this can be a good or a service or a combination of both) and use this as an example to demonstrate the ideas you will have discussed in the first part of the work, considering the main factors that are important for determining the price of your product
  • Based on what you have found out about the product make a judgement about how the conditions of supply and demand are most likely to change in the near future and describe how this might impact on the market price of the product. This will be a speculation (a forecast) but some form of reasoned argument needs to be included to support your assertions.

Hints and Tips 

Module: IY008 - Economics

  • Marks will be awarded (or withheld) according to how well your response answers the question set out in the previous box. You should think very carefully about the content of your work and whether this is relevant to the question
  • You should set aside a significant amount of time to plan, research, write and edit and review your work. As a guide, you should expect to spend 30 hours preparing this assignment.
  • This is a report assignment. A report is a highly structured form of writing and should include headings and/or sub-headings. As with all written assignments your report should be word processed.
  • You need to think very carefully about how you communicate your ideas. Work which is not clear will not be awarded a high mark. If work is very unclear it may not be possible to award it a pass mark!
  • Consider very carefully how you structure your report. To answer the question you will have to include a large number of different ideas so you should think very carefully about how these ideas fit together.
  • You need to be able to introduce the work of other experts to support your own points without plagiarising or committing any other form of academic misconduct.
  • You must think very carefully about the research you conduct and the resources that you use. Marks will be awarded according to the quality of the research material that you use.
  • Academic sources can include books, academic journal articles, and published expert reports. All academic sources are peer-reviewed. which means that they are written by an expert in the field and have passed review by other experts who judged the source for quality and accuracy.
  • You should also consider very carefully how you introduce the work of others into your work as marks will be awarded for the quality of the referencing and your skills at providing in-text citations.
  • The word limit for this assignment is 1250 words (±10%) so your report should be between 1125 words and 1375 words in length. (This limit does not include your reference list or diagram labels).
  • The question specifically requests that you use diagrams as part of your answer. Marks will be withheld if you do not include diagrams! Marks will be awarded for both the accuracy and appropriateness of the diagrams you use.
