One of the things that I like about amateur interest in economics is that you can make sense of it without getting deep into the math. Its not that I'm not good at math, but my dyslexia makes memorizing formulas a bit challenging. (thank god for spell check!)
My arch nemesis in engineering school was the physics of electricity - I had a hard enough time figuring out left from right, never mind getting directions out of it.
ANYWAY, I'm having a hard time keeping elasticity of demand straight. It would seem to me that if something had a high elasticity then demand would stay consistent regardless of the changes in price. I understand this is wrong and my issue is just in the way that I think about the word elastic. (demand will stretch to the price)
Is there another way to think about elasticity that will lead me in the correction direction besides realizing that the way I want to think about it is wrong?
