                                       (рынок)


      Previously we defined markets in a very general way as arrangements
through which prices guide resource allocation. We now adopt a narrower
definition.
      A market is a set of arrangements by which buyers and sellers are in contact
to exchange goods or services.
      Some markets (shops and fruit stalls) physically bring together the buyer and
the seller. Other markets (The London Stock Exchange) operate chiefly through
intermediaries (stockbrokers) who transact business on behalf of clients. In
supermarkets, sellers choose the price, stock the shelves, and leave customers to
choose whether or not to make a purchase. Antique auction force buyers to bid
against each other with the seller taking a passive role.
      Although superficially different, these markets perform the same economic
function. They determine prices that ensure that the quantity people wish to buy
equals the quantity people wish to sell. Price and quantity cannot be considered
separately. In establishing that the price of a Rolls Royce is ten times the price of a
small Ford, the market for motor cars simultaneoused ensures that production and
sales of small Fords will greatly exceed the production and sales of Rolls Royces.
These price guide society in choosing what, how, and for whom to purchase.
      To understand this process more fully, we require a model of a typical
market. The essential features on which such a model must concentrate are
demand, the behaviour of buyers, and supply, the behaviour of sellers. It will then
be possible to study the interaction of these forces to see how a market works in
practice.
