If the Income of a Consumer Increases, Discuss Briefly Its Likely Impact on the Demand for a Inferior Good, Good X. - Economics

Short Note

If the income of a consumer increases, discuss briefly its likely impact on the demand for a inferior good, Good X.



Inferior goods are those which are low in quality. The demand for such goods share a negative relationship with the income such that the demand for inferior goods will decrease as the income increases and vice-versa. This is because with an increase in income, the consumers will now shift to better quality goods. So, the demand for inferior goods will decrease with an increase in income.
