    Creative essay for Economics

    Hey everyone! Can you correct my pretty short essay for Economics please? I would really appreciate it if you would be pretty strict making corrections .

    It is a well-known fact that our basic needs are very simple – a roof over your head, food, and clothing. But our individual additional wants are fairly complicated. According to our basic needs and individual wants, we need various kinds of commodities that satisfy our wants in different ways. The ability of a commodity to satisfy wants is defined as its utility by economists. Economists also say that utility determines “the relationship between a consumer and a commodity”. A consumer cannot generally change the prices of the goods he wants to purchase. These prices are fixed in advanced, which makes it impossible to bargain over them . When planning our expenditures, we should accept these prices as an entity. Being a smart consumer and taking rational decisions is never easy. A wide range/variety of types, sizes, advertising gimmicks influences us when shopping and acting as a buyer. To always get a good deal on every puchase you make , you have to master Economics. A profound knowledge of Economics can last a lifetime. A lot of factors influence our decisions about making a purchase. Smart consumers should obtain all product information available, compare and evaluate this information and be also quite sure that the higher the quality, the higher the price.



    BTW, it is my 17th birthday today! Can I congratulate myself on this happy occassion?

    Here is what might happen to me today:

    Hope no one gets killed

    Many happy returns.
    a roof over your head,- you've changed from 'we' to 'you'
    These prices are fixed in advanced, which makes it impossible to bargain over them .- the language is OK, but can't we haggle over prices?
    our expenditures- I'd use the singular or 'outgoings'
    accept these prices as an entity- I see no need for 'as an entity'
