Short-Run Aggregate Supply (SRAS)
1. SRAS: UHODWLRQEHWZHHQUHDO*'3ILUP¶VGHVLUHGSURGXFWLRQ´DQGSULFHOHYHOwhen
prices of factors of production (including wages) are constant
2. Price level (P) 965\$69

and prices of other factors of production level
production do not change) increases
SRAS
POTENTIAL GDP is total output when factors of production are utilized at normal rates
Long-Run Aggregate Supply (LRAS)
1. LRAS: UHODWLRQEHWZHHQUHDO*'3ILUP¶VGHVLUHGSURGXFWLRQDQGSULFHOHYHOZKHQ
prices of factors of production (including wages) change in same proportion
LRAS: Potential GDP
2. LRAS is vertical because POTENTIAL GDP does not vary with price level
(Potential GDP is total output when factors of production are utilized at normal rates)
