CHANGE IN QUANTITY SUPPLIED: The movement along a supply curve caused by a change in the price of the good. This should be contrasted directly with a change in supply. You might also want to review the terms change in quantity demanded and change in demand, as well. A change in quantity supplied means that we have identified a NEW quantity on the existing supply curve. In contrast, a change in supply means that we have changed, moved, or shifted, the entire supply curve, the whole range of prices and quantities has changed.

LAW OF SUPPLY: The direct relationship between supply price and the quantity supplied, ceteris paribus. This fundamental economic principle indicates that as the price of a commodity increases, then the quantity of the commodity that sellers are able and willing to sell in a given period of time, if other factors are held constant, also increases. This law, while not quite as iron-clad as the law of demand, is quite important to the study of markets.

VOTING RULES

The guidelines followed by groups of individuals or members of society when making collective or joint decisions that involve casting formal indications of choice (that is, votes). The five most noted voting rules are majority, super majority, unanimity, plurality, and weighted. These rules determine if a choice is or is not approved by the voting group. Voting rules are important for the study of public choice and government inefficiencies that arise in the voting process due to the median voter, logrolling, and the voting paradox.
