    Light And Tight

    I understand that "a tight supply of " mean not enough. Does "a light supply of" mean the same, or is it a nonstandard variation of "tight supply"?

    Welcome to the forum, kenh.

    'A light supply of ...' is not natural English.

    I found this on NYTIMES:

    "Credit market participants are facing a light supply of new corporate and tax-exempt bonds this week, as high interest rates continue to deter corporate issuers. "
