Suggested Answer

If there's too much of something, the price gets driven down so the businesses don't make as much money. Also then they probably wouldn't be able to sell the products as easily and they'd be worth less (contributing to the lowered price) If the business isn't making as much money, they'll fire some of their employees to make up for it.
