ディクテーションの実例174 Ceteris Paribusについて
ceteris paribus is latin for all thing being equal. when used in economics or finance, the implication of the term is the same. the effect of one economic variable on another, if all other variables remain the same. for example, you could say that the increase in the price of chicken would result ceteris paribus in last chicken being sold to customers. of course, that's assuming the price for poke, beef and ram haven't increased at the same time and that those prices won't affect demand for those products as well. let's say that ? goes to the store to buy some ingredients for southern fried chicken and when she gets there, the price ? much higher than it was the previous week and ? price range. however, the price of catfish is the same as it was last week. ? went to the store planning to buy chicken, ? she has also found ? catfish for dinner. so, she buys that instead. on the other hand, if ? gets to the store and the prices of catfish, poke, beef and ram have increased as well, these will still probably buy chicken for her recipe that evening.
