ZERO-SUM GAME: A situation in which a fixed amount is divided up among the winners and losers. In a zero-sum game the wins equal the losses. Many stock market, or financial market, exchanges are zero-sum. One person buys low and sells high, while another buys high and sells low. The wealth in such transactions are merely transferred from one person to another. "Productive" market transactions, in contrast, are not zero-sum. The act of producing goods and services from resources that are consumed to satisfy wants and needs results in a net gain to society.

SHORT-RUN EQUILIBRIUM: The condition that exists for the aggregate market when the product and financial markets are in equilibrium, but the resource markets are not. This condition results in the short run because of worker misperceptions about real wages and/or rigid wages and prices. It is represented by the intersection of the AD (aggregate demand) curve and the SRAS (short-run aggregate supply) curve and can be greater than or less than full employment.

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.
