Lesson 6: Market Supply | Unit 4: Determinants Page: 15 of 19

Topic: Types <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

The five determinants that cause the supply curve to shift are:
  • Resource prices: If the price of any resource (labor, capital, land, or entrepreneurship) changes, so too does production cost and the ability to supply a good.
  • Technology: Improving production techniques enhance the ability to supply a good.
  • Prices of other goods: Goods using the same inputs can be either substitutes or complements in production.
  • Expectations: Sellers' current supply depends on expectations of future prices.
  • Number of sellers: More sellers, more supply. Fewer sellers, less supply.
These categories include all factors other than price that affect supply.

A person or country has an absolute advantage in production largely due to superior technology or greater technical efficiency. A related, but contrasting concept is comparative advantage. Both terms are perhaps most important to the study of international trade, but also provide insight into other exchanges.
