In economics, a similar concept also named after Le Chatelier was introduced by US economis paul in 1947. There the generalized Le Chatelier principle is for a maximum condition ofeconomic equlibrium: Where all unknowns of a function are independently variable,auxilliary constraints—"just-binding" in leaving initial equilibrium unchanged—reduce the response to a parameter change. Thus, factor-demand and commodity-supply elasticities are hypothesized to be lower in the short run than in the long run because of the fixed-cost constraint in the short run.
