total revenue minus total cost” (Mankiw, 292). Total revenue is calculated by multiplying price by quantity. Output is determined in a competitive market in terms of maximizing profits by following three general rules: “If marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost, the firm should increase its output, if marginal cost is greater than marginal revenue, the firm should decrease its output, and at the profit-maximizing level of output, marginal revenue and marginal cost are exactly equal” (Mankiw...

Maximizing Profits in Market Structures

maximizing, the price of a good equals the marginal cost of making that good” (p. 306). If the seller charges less than the market price, they may sell more. If they raise the cost, they risk losing customers. The output in a competitive market is determined by what will make them have the largest profit. Firms figure this out be comparing the marginal revenue and marginal cost of each unit they produce. When marginal revenue is greater than the marginal cost, the output should be increased so the firm...

Public Goods Are Non-Rival Consumption Goods and Non-Excludable Goods

variable. In case of Non Rival goods the marginal cost of an additional consumer is zero. Hence efficient price for using an existing non-rival good is zero because a positive price reduces use and hence benefits without reducing costs. Market efficiency requires that the marginal cost of providing an additional good or service must be equal to the sum of marginal benefits of all individuals. If market allocates the good it will be sold at a price. However, marginal cost of non rival good is zero and price...

Microeconomic Theory Problem Set: Answer Key

by the intersection of the firm’s marginal cost and the market demand curve). As usual, the monopoly determines its optimal output on the basis of MR = MC. Here, however, it cannot charge a price in excess of p*. So, for any output less than Q(p*) (where Q(p) is the demand function) its marginal revenue is p*. On the graph below that gives: pm p* MR MC Demand q m q * 2) The inverse demand curve a monopoly faces is p=10Q-1/2. The firm’s cost curve is c(Q) = 10 + 5Q. Find the...
