There are 4 factors that influence the price elasticity of demand: the availability of substitutes, the specific nature of the good, the part of income spent on the good, and the time you have to buy the good. These 4 factors are essential to microeconomics and should be understood in a professional environment. With that in mind, the president of your company wants you to address and discuss the influences of price elasticity of demand.

He also explains that the memo is a vital part of the staff meeting, and he will review it as part of the evaluation for the new vice president position.
