8. Distribution of Wealth Model and Supply and Demand

Distribution of Wealth Model and Supply and Demand

In the previous article "Explanation of inflation and model of inflation hyperinflation" I had mentioned that

r-q = I


q = probability of transaction

r = probability of replacement

I = inflation

This equation was derived from the demand side of the curve and r is the probability of replacement of customers. That is new customers are coming in every day to buy products as in consumer goods and services. q is the inherent probability of transaction within the market or economy and we could for the time being, for simplification purposes, say that it represent supply.

Let us look at the model from this equation was derived from.  



The Distribution of Wealth vs Supply and Demand

If we measure how much money in a given population, an individual has to purchase a product it would be distributed according to the Distribution of Wealth chart shown below.



An example of the Distribution of Wealth Model

DOW640 Distribution of Wealth Model Supply and Demand

This is a fictitious chart and shown here as an example. From here you can observe how rich or poor a certain population is. You will observe that 10 people can afford to purchase a product at $100 but 30 people can afford to purchase a similar product at $9. Which group would you target? How much profit do you think you can make from any target group? Profitability would depend upon the cost of the product for that target market. For example the cost of manufacturing a Mercedes Benz would be very much higher than that of a Proton Saga. But it may be worthwhile looking at whether the Proton Saga should be stripped down and sold to the 36 people who could only afford $6 and some fixtures added to sell to the 25 people who could afford $13. Hence you can end up selling 25+30+36=91 cars per month or per year according to this example instead of trying to compete with Mercedes Benz to sell to 10 customers.  


If you just focused on the 30 people who could afford $9 then after selling to the first 10 customers you will find that there are only 20 customers left. It would appear as if demand is dropping. In actual fact there is a rate of replacement of potential customers. Every month or day or year, 30 more customers walk in the door.  


What is the initial probability of transaction for the $9 product? At first glance it looks like 30/165=0.18 where 165 is the total population. That is an 18% chance of selling to people selected at random. In actual fact the probability of transaction can be 129/165= 0.78 where 129 is the total population that can afford the product – including all people on the left of the $30 segment. This translates to 78% chance of selling to people selected at random. Which would be easier to sell, the $100 product or the $30 product?  


If we considered the case where buyers on the left of the $9 market segment, that is buyers of more expensive products, are willing to purchase the $9 product then in the case shown in the chart below there would be 75 buyers for the $9 product. This indicates a probability of transaction of 0.45 or 45% of the people who walk into your door will purchase the $9 product.  


DOWPotential800 Distribution of Wealth Supply and Demand  


Did you notice that the DOW curve indicates the total money supply into this market?


The market or rather sales begin to oscillate when no new customers walk in the door. This is the Origin of Movements and the basic source of economic oscillations. When replacement customers walk in the door the market or sales becomes inflationary. That is the replacement customers are dampening the oscillations to inflationary behaviour.  



Distribution of Wealth is not Demand Curve?

Now you could say that the curve I have shown is a Demand Curve. It does look like a Demand Curve but the Distribution of Wealth model explains a lot more than a Demand Curve. Furthermore this curve is also the Supply Curve with different number of people as suppliers instead of buyers. And for these reasons this Distribution of Wealth model is an Alternative Theory to the conventional Supply and Demand curve.  



Conventional Supply and Demand curve pitfalls

Now, q the probability of transaction, should be the point, in conventional Economics, in the Supply and Demand chart, it is where the Demand curve cuts the Supply curve.



Conventional Supply and Demand

S&D Distribution of Wealth Model Supply and Demand


As I was examining the conventional Supply & Demand curves my suspicions were aroused. Is this not quite right? For example, if I started a poultry farm supply eggs at a retail price of RM0.40 (USD$0.13) per egg, I would be competing with every other supplier and supplying eggs into the market. If I developed a RM100/- (USD$32.00/-) egg, the supply curve shows that there should be many many more suppliers trying to sell RM100/- eggs. But I do know from experience, that I have priced myself out of the market and no one would buy the RM100/- eggs. Eventually, my business will close and all the other suppliers that were trying to promote RM100 eggs would close too. In reality it does not happen. The Supply curve should probably look like, the chart shown below.  



Conventional Supply and Demand curve pitfall


S&DNoS Distribution of Wealth Model Supply and Demand

This is where the 'Distribution of Wealth' model fits in. Not only can the 'Distribution of Wealth' model be used to represent Demand or Potential Demand but it does show how rich a population group is. Hence the Supply curve will be a region around the Demand Curve. That is, those suppliers who 'cling' closely to the Demand Curve Distribution will survive and succeed. Those suppliers whose products are priced 'way off' the Demand Distribution Curve will find it difficult to survive and fail and disappear from the 'conventional Supply curve' distribution.

"My friend got one, and hostnely the picture and TV were somewhat underwhelming.The picture is ok, and it was side by side annihilated by a 3rd generation Samsung with a similiar refresh rate just no comparison.otoh, I would jump at the chance to buy this for 200 bucks thats undoubtedly a great deal!!Bottom line is this is a great deal at 200, but certainly not a 600 dollar TV probably not even a 500 dollar one. Its a legitimate 425-465 dollar TV though.29 hours for 250 bucks?"

"I got the TV too for BF. I didnt get a ticket in the line but they sold me one after 4am if no one clameid the remaining stock. I got the VERY LAST ONE! Haters gonna hate but this TV is fine for 200 bucks. Its no Plasma LED 600 Hz TV but if you find the right setting, the picture quality is in par. BlueRay on this is amazing, PS3 Games are okay, but I really prefer gaming in a Plasma anyways with high refresh rate. Going to wall mount it soon. Im a broke college student so 200 bucks is a steal."

"Financial problems do occur. Often we can susrpas it but sometimes we cannot provide for it so we tend to seek financial help, usually from our relatives.However, what if they cannot support us when we are in need of money?Loans are everywhere. Those are meant for people in need of money but who have no one to approach to. There are different kinds of loans you can apply for. However, the most used nowadays are the same day loans. It is a loan applicable for the people who urgently need cash. Only a small amount of money could be loaned with a same day loans type. The good thing here is that you can get the desired amount, if it’s not too large, in the same day you borrow it.Applying for a loan is so easy nowadays. It would be easier if you were a good credit borrower. Bad credit borrowers should never lose hope because there are same day loans services that are still willing to help you despite your bad history of paying debts.Since the loan is usually for urgent needs, the application can be made online. You will need to fill up the application form. Once submitted, it will be immediately reviewed by the lenders. Once you meet the criteria, you can quickly avail your loan. Some would require documents if they are in doubt about your personality and requirements. But this won’t be a hassle since it’s online. You can fax documents to them for easy process. It is easier than applying in person.Same day loans requirements are simple and easy. You just need to have a good source of income. People who have steady jobs can easily apply for the loan. They will verify their source of income to ensure that they can pay back what they have borrowed. Bank account is another important requirement together with your own valid name where the borrowed money will be sent if you are approved. You should be in legal age and a citizen where the loan service resides. As long as you comply with the requirements and as long as your requirements are certified as true, you will be able to get your same day loan right away!The loan is such a good news to people who have unexpected expenses. The borrowed money would never be hard to return since you will just be allowed to borrow a small amount. The borrowed money should be paid on your next payday so it won’t be a burden to you since you already have money.Some people get discouraged about applying for loans because they always look at the negative side of things. They think they cannot pay for it and they will be indebted heavily. As long as you have a steady job, a source of income and you prioritize what you need to prioritize, then you will never be in debt. A good debt payer will have a good debt history that could be an advantage when he needs to borrow large amounts of money in the future."
