4. In my opinion supply and demand is all about making money for companies. And the way they gather the information and data abut there products really allows companies to see how well the product will sell and when...ect. And to make money in a company you have to know the product and how much demand and ect so you know what to produce and how much to sell and the price to sell at. If you make the product to expensive then people won't buy it. Or if you make a lot of a product, you have to make sure people will buy it.
