Deslocamento da oferta e da demanda

Shift
Explanation:
It is indeed difficult without more context to determine exactly what is meant here, but in economics one talks of a "shift" of (or "in" but not "on") the demand/supply (curves), not usually a displacement. This means that some external factor causes the demand/supply curve to move up or down. Moves along the curves are called simply that ("move along the curve") and not "shifts."

change, alteration


Explanation:
Donna & Steve estão certos com as palavras deles, e sem o texto todo é difícil dizer o que é melhor.
As minhas "change, alteration, move" são outras dependendo do contexto.
