Definitions of PRODUCER SURPLUS
Sort: Oldest first
In economic terms, it is the difference between the lowest amount that the producer is willing to accept for a good and the present amount at which he sells the goods. The benefit for the producer is higher is this difference is higher. On the standard demand and supply graph, the producer surplus is located between the supply curve and the below the point of intersection of both curves.
