KINKED-DEMAND CURVE: A demand curve with two distinct segments with different elasticities that join to form a kink. The primary use of the kinked-demand curve is to explain price rigidity in oligopoly.

You don't actually have to PAY for the stuff that you're buying -- at least not right away. Your bank account is safe.
