principles of supply and demand

Choose a product that you think illustrates the principles of supply and demand. It could be something like a Lamborghini that has a very limited supply and a great demand that makes it expensive. Or it could be something like a calculator that used to be very expensive but has become cheap because of trends in technology.
Give a brief overview of the company that makes the product. If the product is made by multiple companies, just choose one of them. Respond to the following:
What does the company make?
What value does this product provide to consumers? Why do they buy it?
Explain how the product can illustrate the law of supply and demand.

economic environment;
legal environment;
