The short run is a time period such that the current situation, or the present state of being, is within the short run.
The short run is the present state of being, where we aren’t in a time loop, and so we don’t have to worry about time being repeated. So the short run is when we’re in a state of being, where we have a sense of “present” and not “past.
If you’re like me, you probably look at your short run as a time period that is “now”. The past, present, and future are all in that time period, and the only way to get there is to move forward.
In the short run, we arent in a time loop, but the present may be. We aren’t in a time loop even if we are in the short run. This is important for us to understand because it has implications for future actions, future relationships, future choices, and future events.
