We are learning about economics in class here's some useful information.

When some one is making a product to sell they are making a supply of something, how many people that buy the product are making a demand, and they are the consumers. The equilibrium point is when the two points; supply and quantity, meet. The price goes up and down depending on how many people buy this product, for example; not many people are buying the product so the price goes down to see if people will start to buy it because it's cheaper. The quantity also changes because of the price. The producer makes the money I think. And they put all of the stuff I just said into a graph to find the equilibrium point. This is about the relationship between the producer and consumer. I like a bit of retail therapy sometimes, actually a lot of the time so I definitely help the market.

Here's a link to the site I used to help me find all of this amazingly useful information:

Thanks for reading!

Sustainibility No.2

In class we have been talking about sustainibility and how you can help the world by reducing bad things you do. We have to design an eco-friendly house and explain the adaptations of it, I think.

An eco house is built in a way that reduces energy consumption and waste. An eco house reduces the buildings bad impact on human health and the environment, through better design, construction, siting and maintenance.

An eco house is a combination of sustainable design, sustainable development and sustainable living. Studies have shown that buildings are the most damaging polluters on the planet, consuming over half of all the energy used in developed countries and making over half of all the climate-changing greenhouse gases.

A good eco house should give the owner the a bit of both by providing less of an impact on the environment along with a healthier place to live and lower ongoing running costs.

Here a link to help you start off your friendly living!
