The economic analysis essentially deals with the maximization of leisure time, income,
health, happiness, all of which are usually reduced to a definition of utility subject to constraints.
Such constraints or scarcity is defined as a tradeoff. Perfect competition is a kind of demand
where many buyers and sellers sell the same or same thing. Free entry is also available and
companies exist. The market is well open to both the buyers and sellers (Bauer, & Zanjani,
2016).
In the following part the perfect competition market for one of the café will be analyzed
through which it can be analyzed the existence and growth of the company in the perfect
competition market to the certain extent (Borenstein, 2016).

price changes to understand the real economy's workings. For example, some goods are highly
elastic and cause significant shifts in their price movements in their request or supply. In order to
analyze the price elasticity of demand of Café Bar, it has been identified that the café comes in
perfect competition market in which all the products are the perfect substitute of each other.
Therefore, the demand of coffee in the market is highly elastic which represent that if Café Bar
tries to increase its price then the demands of its product can decreases. It is shown in the below
table:
