wealth effect

  

Definition

Changes in aggregate demand caused by change in the value of assets such as stocks, bonds, gold, property. Increase in the market value of these assets induces a feeling of being 'richer' in their owners (even if no additional cash is realized) and often tends to encourage spending and to dampen savings.
