The video game industry has grown a lot within the last few decades, just in the United States, there are around 150 million people who play games regularly. As the leading form of entertainment in our era of technology, scientists have brought their attention to the effects that video games may have on individuals, and their brains. A group of researchers combined the results of 116 scientific studies made on video games and their effect on people who played video games frequently. Out of those studies, 22 were conducted to examine and look for structural changes within the brain, and 100 of them were conducted to observe brain functionality and behavior changes among participants. They have found that individuals who did play video games had refined their ability to focus; they were able to stay attentive for longer periods of time, centered their attention more effectively, while also demanding less effort to do so than people that did not. The researchers also found that playing video games had increased the size and capabilities of the right hemisphere's hippocampus, which is associated with memory and visuospatial skills. On the other hand, the studies have found that video games can lead to addiction, researchers call it “internet gaming disorder”. They discovered that people with an addiction to video games had suffered both functional and structural changes within their neural reward systems; structures that are linked to motivation, pleasure, and learning. We can conclude that video games may bring us many benefits, as long as they are played in moderation.

I've experienced supply and demand directly with Tesla Motors as I sell and buy shares online via the stock market for fun in my spare time. I was trading Tesla stocks a while ago and I bought a few shares at $150 each, just before the announcement of Tesla's Cybertruck, the price jumped to $350 per share because people had good expectations of it. This shifted the demand for their shares to the right, increasing the demand for tesla shares. The expectations have kept growing since, and the shares are now trading at $2,150 each. The expectations towards tesla’s future are so high now that the price/earnings ratio has reached 1100. This means the price to acquire 1 share of Tesla is currently 1100 times higher than what it will generate in cash annually, just because investors are expecting substantial future growth. Tesla also received subsidies from the U.S government, since they are an electric car manufacturer, which they have used to produce more cars for a cheaper price. The subsidies, shifting Tesla’s supply to the right, increasing its supply in cars. (The bonus was around $7500 per car for the first 200,000 cars they sold).
