An attribute in economics that usually describes a rather unresponsive relationship of the level of supply and demand for an item to changes in that item's price. For example, a commodity's demand would demonstrate price inelasticity if a substantial change in price did not did significantly affect the level of consumption observed for that commodity when all other factors are kept equal.
