 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.

Elasticity Basics

In this lesson, we will examine the basics of elasticity, including what it is, how it is measured, and how it is used in market analysis.

• The first unit of this lesson, The Concept, introduces the elasticity concept and previews its role in market analysis.
• In the second unit, A Little More, examines the importance of elasticity for such topics as market shocks, taxes, and price controls.
• The third unit, Measurement, takes a close look at how elasticity is measured, focusing on the coefficient of elasticity.
• The fourth unit, A Continuum, examines the five categories of elasticity, ranging from elastic to inelastic, that form a continuum.
• The fifth unit and final unit, Market Elasticity, closes this lesson by introducing four key elasticity concepts for the market demand and supply.
