Elasticity

by Jadrian

After getting kicked out of his parents' house, Jesse is on the hunt for a new apartment. After the potential landlord realizes Jesse doesn't have a legal job, she raises the rent on the apartment. Part of her ability to do this comes from the fact that Jesse is a rental risk and she needs to be compensated for the additional risk she takes on from renting to someone without a legal job. Jesse's demand is also pretty inelastic because he needs a place to live and there aren't many places willing to lease to a person without a formal job.
