INELASTIC DEMAND: Relatively large changes in demand price cause relatively smaller changes in quantity demanded. Inelastic demand means that changes in the quantity demanded are not very responsive to changes in the demand price. An inelastic demand has a coefficient of elasticity less than one (the negative value is ignored). You might want to compare inelastic demand to elastic demand, inelastic supply, and elastic supply.

PRICE FLOOR: A legally established minimum price. Pressured by special interest groups, our beloved government is often convinced that the price of a good needs to be kept at a higher level. Examples of goods that have had price floors bestowed upon them include farm products and workers. The argument in both of these examples is that suppliers aren't getting enough income for the stuff they sell (food or labor). A higher price is then expected to generate more income to these deserving souls. Unfortunately, price floors tend to create as many or more problems than they solve. They create inefficient surpluses.

This is one of three categories of personal consumption expenditures in the National Income and Product Accounts maintained by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The other two are nondurable goods and services. Durable goods are about 12 percent of personal consumption expenditures and 8 percent of gross domestic product.
