  Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply
Aggregate supply and aggregate demand is an attractive framework because it is simple, with the same structure as supply and demand.
However, the assumptions behind aggregate supply and aggregate demand are totally different from those behind supply and demand, that is, aggregate supply and aggregate demand curves are not obtained by adding up all the supply and demand curves in an economy.
So far the expositions of aggregate supply and aggregate demand have been fuzzy about what is fixed in the short run that is not fixed in the long run.

 Supply and demand - Knowmore
The theory of supply and demand is important for some economic schools' understanding of a market economy in that it is an explanation of the mechanism by which many resource allocation decisions are made.
In this case the good demanded is actually prestige, and not a car, so when the price of the luxury car decreases, it is actually changing the amount of prestige so the demand is not decreasing since it is a different good (see Veblen good).
Even with downward-sloping demand curves, it is possible that an increase in income may lead to a decrease in demand for a particular good, probably due to the existence of more attractive alternatives which become affordable: a good with this property is known as an inferior good.

 Aggregate demand, uncertainty and oil prices: the 1990 oil shock in comparative perspective
The structure of this paper is based on the three basic channels through which aggregate demand factors may influence the response of the economy to an increase in oil prices.
In particular, we compare demand conditions prevailing in mid-1990 - factors such as capacity constraints, inflation and wage pressures and business conditions - with those prevailing prior to the two oil shocks in the 1970s and assess whether they tended to be more or less favourable.
Finally, we consider the aggregate demand policy responses to previous oil shocks, in their fiscal and monetary dimensions, and evaluate the role they played in determining the ultimate pattern of output and inflation.

 Chapter 7. AGGREGATE DEMAND AND SUPPLY
Demand pull inflation is attributable to a rightward shift of the aggregate demand curve.
Any initiating shift of aggregate demand in a market economy is likely to induce a subsequent opposite-direction shift of short-run aggregate supply as people "wake up" to what is happening to their incomes and costs of living.
A decrease of Aggregate Demand relative to Aggregate Supply results in inventory accumulation and softer market prices; if prices are sticky downward the brunt of the adjustment must be borne by falling output and employment of labor and material inputs.

The demand curve is a visual representation of the behavior of buyers in a market while the supply curve is a visual representation of the behavior of sellers in a market.
The aggregate demand curve, meanwhile, represents the behavior of the buyers of those goods and services - the households that buy groceries and the firms that buy computers and the government that buys military hardware and the Europeans who buy US produced machine tools.
For example, the AD curve is directly affected by the size of the population and the individual components of demand that affect the non financial markets as well as developments in the financial markets.

Explain that the events you are about to describe will initially cause aggregate supply or aggregate demand curves to increase or decrease, or lead to a movement along the aggregate supply and aggregate demand curves without causing them to shift.
Recognize that, for shifts in aggregate demand, the effects on the price and output levels will depend on whether aggregate demand intersects aggregate supply in the horizontal, vertical, or positively sloped range of that curve, as discussed in the Appendix to this lesson.
Aggregate supply and aggregate demand analysis deals with all of the productive resources in an economy; with all of the spending by households, businesses, and the government; with monetary and fiscal policies; and with international trade— all at the same time!

 Working Paper: The Phillips Curve and Aggregate Demand-Supply Analysis
Since in a growing economy both Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply are continually increasing (shifting rightward), the relative paces of increase are critically important to the rate at which the price level increases or decreases.
Figure 6 shows that when Aggregate Demand is accelerating and Aggregate Supply is stable (or increasing at a slower pace), real output increases and the price level rises at an accelerating rate.
This is illustrated in the righthand panel of Figure 8 by the movement along PC from point C to point D. Circumstances similar to this occurred during 1974-75, 1980-82, and 1990-92 when the movement seemed to be to the southeast beyond the tops of the spirals in Figure 5.

Aggregate demand is the total quantity of goods and services produced in the domestic economy in a given time period, while real GDP is the relationship between the average price level and the quantity demanded of all goods and services.

Aggregate Demand (AD) is then a function of the price level (P) and the relation between the two can be expressed in the form of a schedule.
Therefore, their capacity to spend is likely to increase and demand for goods may actually rise, instead of falling, or may at least remain constant even with a rise in price level.
For this reason, the inverse relationship (downward sloping curve) of the aggregate demand curve cannot be explained with the same reasoning as that of the individual demand curve.
