CHANGE IN SUPPLY: A shift of the supply curve caused by a change in one of the supply determinants. In essence, a change in supply is caused by any factor affecting supply EXCEPT price. This concept should be contrasted directly with a change in quantity supplied. You should also review the terms change in quantity demanded and change in demand, too. A change in supply is a change in ALL supply price-quantity supplied pairs, meaning that each price is matched up with a different quantity (which is illustrated as a shift of the supply curve). And this change in supply is caused by a change in any of the supply determinants. In contrast, a change in quantity supplied is a change from one price-quantity pair to the another (which is illustrated as a movement along a given supply curve).

LAW OF COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGE: A basic principle that states every nation has a production activity that incurs a lower opportunity cost than that of another nation, which means that trade between the two nations can be beneficial to both if each specializes in the production of a good with lower relative opportunity cost. While this law is fundamental to the study of international trade, it also applies to other activities, especially the specialization and the division of labor.

LAW OF DIMINISHING MARGINAL UTILITY

A principle stating that as the quantity of a good consumed increases, eventually each additional unit of the good provides less additional utility--that is, marginal utility decreases. Each subsequent unit of a good is valued less than the previous one. The law of diminishing marginal utility helps to explain the negative slope of the demand curve and the law of demand.
