Look close as the definition from the Business Dictionary:

law of supply and demand
Definition

Common sense principle which defines the generally observed relationship between demand, supply, and prices: as demand increases the price goes up which attracts new suppliers who increase the supply bringing the price back to normal. However, in the marketing, of high price (prestige) goods, such as perfumes, jewelry, watches, cars, liquor, a low price may be associated with low quality, and may reduce demand.
