IDENTIFICATION LAG: In the context of economic policies, the time between a shock to the economy and realization that the shock has occurred. This is one of several policy lags that limit the effectiveness of stabilization policies designed to correct business-cycle fluctuations. This is also one of two inside lags. The other is an implementation lag. Also termed recognition lag, the identification lag emerges due to the time needed to measure economic activity. While the lag is generally positive, it actually can be negative through accurate forecasting techniques. When negative policies can be undertaken to correct a problem before it occurs.

CURVE: A line with a non-constant, or changing, slope. In technical circles, the word "line" is often used if the slope is constant and the word "curve" is used to mean the slope is not constant. However, economics often uses the terms line and curve interchangeably, as in "demand line" or "demand curve." Unless your course is taught be an economist with a really strong mathematical inclination, you too can safely use both terms interchangeably.

SHORT-RUN AGGREGATE SUPPLY

The total (or aggregate) real production of final goods and services available in the domestic economy at a range of price levels, during a period of time in which some prices, especially wages, are rigid, inflexible, or otherwise in the process of adjusting. Short-run aggregate supply, commonly abbreviated SRAS, is one of two aggregate supply alternatives, distinguished by the degree of price flexibility. The other is long-run aggregate supply. Short-run aggregate supply is combined with aggregate demand in the short-run aggregate market analysis used to analyze business-cycle instability, unemployment, inflation, government stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic topics.
