Offline Version: PDF

Term aggregate market self-correction Definition: The automatic process through which the aggregate market adjusts from short-run equilibrium to long-run equilibrium. Self-correction results through shifts of the short-run aggregate supply curve caused by changes in wages and other resource prices. Short-run equilibrium in the aggregate market is characterized by inflexible or rigid resource prices, especially wages. This creates temporary imbalances in resource markets, especially unemployment and overemployment of labor. Self-correction is the process in which these temporary imbalances are eliminated through flexible prices and the aggregate market achieves long-run equilibrium. You might want to compare this process to self correction, market.
