I have a basic question

What are the different means/mechanisms available to address supply-demand imbalance?

The answers that come to my mind are :

  1. Using pricing (when demand > supply)
  2. Using rationing (when demand > supply)
  3. Preempting the imbalance by gathering precise demand information (when supply > demand)

Are there any other means available to address situations when demand > supply and supply > demand?

  • $\begingroup$ The mechanism to address the supply-demand imbalance would have to depend on the reason why such imbalance existed in the first place. So, why do you there should be an imbalance to begin with? $\endgroup$ – Herr K. Feb 12 at 18:26
