Term change in real production Definition: The movement along the short-run or long-run aggregate supply curve caused by a change in the price level. This should be contrasted directly with a change in aggregate supply. You might also want to review the terms change in quantity supplied and change in supply, as well. A change in real production for short-run aggregate supply actually means real production changes with a movement along a given SRAS. However, a "change in real production" for long-run aggregate supply really refers to a movement along a given LRAS curve and doesn't actually involve a change in production. A change in real production means that we have identified a NEW price level-real production combination on the existing aggregate supply curve. In contrast, a change in aggregate supply means that we have changed, moved, or shifted, the entire aggregate supply curve, the whole range of price levels and real production amounts has changed.
