Media Type: Film Clips Topic: Supply & Demand, Behavioral Economics

Johnny Depp is a West Coast cocaine dealer who decides to market his product on the East Coast because he can sell it there at a higher price. The clip illustrates an imbalance in supply and demand, partnerships, entrepreneurship, and the calculus (cost-benefit analysis) behind the decision to commit a crime. I use this scene to teach supply and demand.
