YTM: The common abbreviation for yield to maturity, which is the annual rate of return on a financial asset that is held until maturity. Yield to maturity depends on both the coupon rate and the face or par value paid at maturity. If the selling price of a financial asset is equal to its par value, then the yield to maturity is equal to the current yield and the coupon rate. However, if the asset is selling at a discount, then the yield to maturity exceeds the current yield, which is greater than the coupon rate. And if the asset is selling at a premium, then the yield to maturity is less than the current yield, which is below than the coupon rate.

    Monopoly

    While this lesson on monopoly is not necessarily a "how to" guide for the monopolization of a market, it does provide insight into the nature and function of the monopoly market structure. We get a little insight into how a monopoly is created, and a lot of insight into what a monopoly does once it does have control of the market. Throughout this lesson, I'll me making snide comments about how inefficient monopoly is compared to more competitive markets.

    • The first unit of this lesson, One Firm, begins this lesson with a look at the nature of monopoly and how it is related to other market structures.
    • In the second unit, Revenue, we examine the revenue side of a market dominated by monopoly -- including total revenue, average revenue, and marginal revenue.
    • The third unit, Output, then looks at the profit-maximizing output production decision by a monopoly using assorted graphs and tables.
    • In the fourth unit, Evaluation, we analyze the profit-maximizing decision of monopoly in terms of profit, loss, efficiency, and short-run supply.
    • The fifth and final unit, Regulation, then closes this lesson by considering the role government plays in regulating monopoly.

    MARGINAL COST AND MARGINAL PRODUCT

    The U-shape of the marginal cost curve is closely related to the hump-shape of the marginal product curve. The increasing portion of the marginal product curve corresponds with the decreasing portion of the marginal cost curve. The decreasing portion of the marginal product curve corresponds with the increasing portion of the marginal cost curve. The peak of the marginal product curve corresponds with the minimum of the marginal cost curve.
