Inelasticity

Inelasticity Definition

Inelasticity exists when supply and demand are virtually unresponsive to changes in price. For example, a commodity is inelastic when a price change does not create a rise or fall in consumption.

In economics, an inelastic relationship implies that the relationship is still proportional, but with a low constant of proportionality (e.g., price inelasticity).
