Comment on Generating Points for the Argument Essay

Hello, would you provide an example to elaborate the supply and demand flaw. Thanks!

You bet. Here's a rudimentary example of a supply and demand flaw:

Joe owns a bike rental business in Fairbanks, Alaska (a place that is VERY cold in the winter). At present, his business is open for 6 months, from April 1st to September 30. Joe concludes that, if he keeps his business open all year, his revenue will double.

The flaw here is that doubling the supply will be met with double the demand.

Does that help?


Absolutely, thanks a ton
