MARKET SUPPLY: The total supply of every seller willing and able to sell a good. Market supply is found by combining the individual supplies of every firm or producer willing and able to sell a particular good. The market supply curve is found by horizontally adding all individual supply curves, that is, sum up the quantities supplied by all sellers at each and every price. Market supply operates according to the law of supply, as illustrated by a upward-sloping market supply curve. For higher prices the quantity supplied by all sellers in the market combined is greater than the quantity supplied for lower prices.

VOTING PARADOX

The possibility that the voting preferences of a group of individuals results in an inconsistent, or intransitive, ranking. While consistent, or transitive, ranking of preferences is expected for individuals, such might not occur for groups of voters. If a consumer prefers good A to good B and good B to good C, then it makes logical sense that the consumer also prefers good A to good C. The voting paradox arises because a group of individuals might prefer A to B and B to C, but then prefer C to A, an inconsistent and intransitive ranking of preferences. Other related voting problems identified by the study of public choice includes the median voter principle, logrolling, and voter apathy (due to rational ignorance and rational abstention).
