Supply Shock
No Comments Yet

Supply Shock is a sudden unexpected change in the form of an event that increases or decreases output of directly or indirectly related products temporarily. An example of supply shock could include bad weather, such as a hurricane, that reduces the immediate supply of a commodity, such as the shipment of crude oil. This can be a negative shock or positive shock, which in turn will either shift the supply curve either to the left or right.
