Very little extra bread will be bought, maybe 21 loaves per month instead of 20 (a 5% increase), but three times as many bottles of wine might be purchased.
These examples are of stable equilibrium because the forces called into play by disturbing the stable state act to restore the stable state. An example of an unstable equilibrium is a coin balanced on its edge; undisturbed it will stand on its end for ever, but a push will upset its balance and it will fall over because no forces exist which tend to restore the initial position. Economics is closely concerned with equilibria.
