SHORT-RUN AGGREGATE SUPPLY: The total (or aggregate) real production of final goods and services available in the domestic economy at a range of price levels, during a period of time in which some prices, especially wages, are rigid, inflexible, or otherwise in the process of adjusting. Short-run aggregate supply (SRAS) is one of two aggregate supply alternatives, distinguished by the degree of price flexibility; the other is long-run aggregate supply. Short-run aggregate supply is combined with aggregate demand in the short-run aggregate market analysis used to analyze business-cycle instability, unemployment, inflation, government stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic topics.

BANKING

An industry containing depository institutions that provide financial intermediary services and safekeeping of checkable deposits that make up an important portion of the economy's money supply. These depository institutions--including traditional commercial banks, credit unions, savings and loan associations, and mutual savings banks--pursue financial intermediation and deposit safekeeping through fractional-reserve banking. Banking is regulated by the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Comptroller of the Currency, among a host of other federal and state regulators.
