Deadweight Loss,

Definition of Deadweight Loss:

  • Deadweight is the price of society due to market inefficiency which occurs when supply and demand are disrupted. Deadweight, primarily used in business, can be applied to any shortfall caused by inactive resource allocation. Price restrictions such as price controls and lower rent controls such as minimum wages, reasonable wages and tax weights are likely to reduce weight. With low exchange rates, resource allocation within the company can also be ineffective.
