inelastic offer curve

Definition

Economics

  • An offer curve with inelastic demand for imports. That inelasticity implies that exports decline as imports increase, and it therefore means that the offer curve is backward bending. Strictly speaking, the natural definition of an offer curve's elasticity would be negative in this case, not just less than one, but that definition is seldom used.
