Term short-run aggregate market equilibrium Definition: The state of equilibrium that exists in the short-run aggregate market when real aggregate expenditures are equal to full employment real production with no imbalances to induce changes in the price level or real production. In other words, the opposing forces of aggregate demand (the buyers) and short-run aggregate supply (the sellers) exactly offset each other. Equilibrium in the short-run aggregate market achieves balance in the product markets and financial markets, but not in the resource markets. It also involves simultaneous equilibrium in the aggregated financial and resource markets.
