We know that the preferences and demand for hand sanitizer increased dramatically starting in mid-March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. How would you show a change in preferences for hand sanitizer on the graph given above? Would the budget line change, or would the position of the indifference curve change? You may assume that income and prices of all other items and hand sanitizers did not change. Please give an explanation and show the changes on the graph.
