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).

PRICE DISCRIMINATION: Charging different prices to different buyers for the same good. This is an age old practice for suppliers who have achieved some degree of market control, especially those with a monopoly. The reason for price discrimination, of course, is higher profit. To be a successful price discriminator you must be able to do three things--(1) have market control and be a price maker, (2) identify two or more groups that are willing to pay different prices, and (3) keep the buyers in one group from reselling the good to another group. In this way, you will be able to charge each group what they, and they alone, are willing to pay.
