ELASTIC DEMAND: Relatively small changes in demand price cause relatively larger changes in quantity demanded. Elastic demand means that changes in the quantity demanded are relatively responsive to changes in the demand price. An elastic demand has a coefficient of elasticity greater than one (the negative value is ignored). You might want to compare elastic demand to inelastic demand, elastic supply, and inelastic supply.

PERFECT COMPETITION: An ideal market structure characterized by a large number of small firms, identical products sold by all firms, freedom of entry into and exit out of the industry, and perfect knowledge of prices and technology. This is one of four basic market structures. The other three are monopoly, oligopoly, and monopolistic competition. Perfect competition is an idealized market structure that's not observed in the real world. While unrealistic, it does provide an excellent benchmark that can be used to analyze real world market structures. In particular, perfect competition efficiently allocates resources.

WAGES, AGGREGATE SUPPLY DETERMINANT

One of several specific aggregate supply determinants assumed constant when the short-run aggregate supply curve is constructed, and that shifts the short-run aggregate supply curve when it changes. An increase in the wages causes a decrease (leftward shift) of the short-run aggregate supply curve. A decrease in the wages causes an increase (rightward shift) of the short-run aggregate supply curve. Other notable aggregate supply determinants include the technology, energy prices, and the capital stock. Wages are an example of a resource price aggregate supply determinant.
