Say we have a supply and demand relationship, in which the demand curve does not intersect with the supply curve and the demand curve is situated above the supply curve. What phenomenon describes such a relationship, does such a phenomenon exist?
I was thinking maybe country $A$ has regulations in place such that suppliers cannot sell product $a$ for more than some amount $S$. Maybe there is an ethical issue such as underpaid staff associated with the production of the item, so consumers will not buy $a$ at such a low price. However this seems quite far fetched and I don't know whether such a scenario exists.
