Hi guys, I am new here, and I am really having trouble in my microeconomics class. Please forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong forum. Anywho I am a new to economics, and there is a problem in my textbook that I am confused on how to go about answering it. The question is: "In November 1998 Vincent van Gogh's self-portrait sold at auction for $71.5 million. Portray this sale in a demand and supply diagram and comment on the elasticity of supply. Comedian George Carlin once mused, 'If a painting can be forged well enough to foll some experts, why is the original so valuable?' Provide and Answer." The question is from Economics, 18th edition, McConnell/Brue/Flynn. McGraw-Hill Irwin. (posting this because of copyrighting and what not). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
