Supply shock

An event that influences production capacity and costs in an economy.

Supply Shock

Any sudden event that dramatically but (usually) temporarily increases or decreases supply for one or more goods or services. The event may result from government intervention, such as a change in money supply, or may be a random occurrence in the market. For example, a sudden discovery of oil in a field previously thought mainly dry will increase the supply of oil, which will lower the price, assuming demand remains constant. See also: Demand shock.
