I actually thought this was a little silly until you started asking this question. I can’t imagine that a cross-price elasticity of between -1 and -0.6 would actually matter. In the context of this particular question, you would be more likely to see a result of -0.5 than anything near that.

One possible scenario where this may be a problem is if the price of the good you’re buying is more expensive than the other good. For example, if you are buying a pair of shoes at $15 each, and the other pair is $30 each, then the elasticity should be positive.

The cross-price elasticity is a measure of how much more sellers are willing to pay for a good than the other sellers are willing to sell it for. As the name implies, the higher the cross-price elasticity, the more sellers will sell it for more than it costs them to sell it. The bigger the cross-price elasticity, the cheaper the seller is to produce the good, thus allowing the price to be lower.

The cross-price elasticity is a very simple measure, but it is worth thinking about in its broader context. In many areas of commerce, the price that is paid is directly related to the cost for the sellers. In order to reduce the price that sellers are willing to pay for goods, the sellers will try to charge a lower price than their competitors. This is known as the “Nash Equilibrium”.

The problem with the Nash Equilibrium is that it leaves the sellers worse off, since the sellers will need to pay more in order to compensate for the reduced price; it leaves the sellers worse off, in other words. The Nash Equilibrium will most likely be positive when the sellers are all better off.

In contrast, the cross-price elasticity of the seller pairs is the reciprocal of the maximum price that the seller can charge for the good in question. In other words, if the sellers are in fact all better off, the cross-price elasticity will be negative, and thus the sellers will have to raise prices in order to compensate for the lowered prices. The cross-price elasticity of the seller pairs can be positive, or negative.

This is because there are always two sellers, and they’re both in the same market. Therefore, the cross-price elasticity is always positive.

There are two sellers making the same good. Therefore, the cross-price elasticity is always positive.

The cross-price elasticity is negative because the two sellers are in the same market.

The cross-price elasticity is not a real number. It is a measure of how much difference in price exists between the two goods relative to each other.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
