price line

Definition

Economics

  • A straight line representing the combinations of variables, usually two goods, that cost the same at some given prices. The slope of a price line measures relative prices, and changes in prices can therefore be represented by changing the slope of, or rotating, a price line. A steeper line means a higher relative price of the good measured on the horizontal axis.
