FACTOR DEMAND AND MARGINAL REVENUE PRODUCT: For a firm that hires the services of a factor in a perfectly competitive factor market, the factor demand curve is that portion of the marginal revenue product curve that lies below the average revenue product curve. The relation between marginal revenue product and factor demand for a perfectly competitive firm is comparable to the relation between marginal cost and short-run supply. A perfectly competitive firm maximizes profit by hiring the quantity of a factor that equates factor price and marginal revenue product. As such, the firm moves along it's marginal revenue product curve in response to alternative factor prices.

WHITE GULLIBON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who seldom sees the evil that runs amok, because there is no evil that you can see. Family and friends mock you behind your back but not to your face. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time strolling through a department store seeking to buy either a coffee cup commemorating the 1960 Presidential election or a how-to book on fixing your computer, with illustrations. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter J, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 495639. Your preferred shopping venue is television shopping channels. Your special symbol is the minus sign (-).


Is this You?

As a White Gullibon, you are extremely trusting but somewhat impressionable, seeing only the good in other people. You tend to be a bit naive in the wily ways of the marketplace and thus are often exploited by others, especially the Reg Aggressorine. Like it or not, you are the poster child for the phrase "let the buyer beware." You are empathetic to the plight of others, often to your own detriment.


This isn't me! What am I?
AVERAGE FACTOR COST CURVE

A curve that graphically represents the relation between average factor cost incurred by a firm for employing an input and the quantity of input used. Because average factor cost is essentially the price of the input, the average factor cost curve is also the supply curve for the input. The average factor cost curve for a firm with no market control is horizontal. The average revenue curve for a firm with market control is positively sloped.

Trading Some Ideas On EXCHANGE RATES

One potential problem with any far and wide ambling tour of the economy is ambling too far or too wide. Such is the case as we find ourselves in the quaint and courteous Republic of Northwest Queoldiola. While we're here, let's take the opportunity to explore the quaint and courteous economy of the Northwest Queoldiola. Our impromptu economic expedition is faced with an immediate roadblock. I have a pocket filled with good old U. S. dollar bills, but the quaint and courteous people of Northwest Queoldiola don't trade their wares for good old U. S. dollar bills. They prefer the quaint and courteous Northwest Queoldiolan currency, the queold. All we need to do is trade my good old U. S. dollar bills for quaint and courteous queolds.
