CHANGE IN AGGREGATE SUPPLY: A shift of the short-run or long-run aggregate supply curve caused by a change in one of the aggregate supply determinants. In essence, a change in aggregate supply is caused by any factor affecting supply EXCEPT the price level. This concept should be contrasted directly with a change in real production. You might also want to review the terms change in quantity supplied and change in supply, as well. The change in aggregate supply is comparable to the change in market supply. A change in aggregate supply is a change in ALL price level-real production combinations, meaning that each price level is matched up with a different level of real production (which is then illustrated as a shift of the short-run or long-run aggregate supply curve). This change in aggregate supply is caused by a change in any of the aggregate supply determinants. In contrast, a change in real production is a change from one price level-real production combination to the another.

LAW OF INCREASING OPPORTUNITY COST: The proposition that opportunity cost, the value of foregone production, increases as more of a good is produced. This "law" can be seen in the production possibilities schedule and is illustrated graphically through the slope of the production possibilities curve. It generates the distinctive convex shape of the curve, making it flat at the top and steep at the bottom.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching infomercials seeking to buy either galvanized steel storage shelves or a large green chalkboard shaped like the state of Maine. Be on the lookout for strangers with large satchels of used undergarments.
