Description of Elasticity of Supply. Explanation.




Definition Elasticity of Supply. Description.

Elasticity of Supply is the responsiveness of the quantity supplied of a good to a given change in price (Compare: Bullwhip Effect).

The (price) elasticity of supply can be calculated as the percentage change in supply that occurs in response to a percentage change in price. For example, if, in response to a 15% rise in the price of a good, the quantity supplied increases by 30%, the price elasticity of supply would be 30% / 15% = 3.
