AD-AS MODEL: An economic model relating the price level and real production that is used to analyze business cycles, gross domestic product, unemployment, inflation, stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic phenomena. The AS-AD model, inspired by the standard market model, captures the interaction between aggregate demand (the buyers) and short-run and long-run aggregate supply (the sellers).

ALLOCATIVE EFFICIENCY:

Obtaining the most consumer satisfaction from available resources. In other words, resources are allocated in such a way that consumer satisfaction is at its highest possible level. This is also termed either efficiency or economic efficiency.
Allocative efficiency means the economy is doing the best job possible of satisfying unlimited wants and needs with limited resources--that is, of addressing the problem of scarcity. To achieve allocative efficiency, however, the economy must first achieve technical efficiency. Technical efficiency means that society is getting the most production from available resources. In other words, there is no waste in the production process.

Allocative efficiency, however, means that this technically efficient production is also useful to or valued by people. While technical efficiency might be achieved in the production of purple spotted stuffed animals, allocative efficiency is not achieved if no one actually wants purple spotted stuffed animals and they remain stored in a big purple warehouse.
