COLLUSION PRODUCTION ANALYSIS: To avoid competition, oligopolistic firms are occasionally inclined to cooperate through collusion. Collusion occurs when two or more oligopolistic firms jointly agree to control market prices and quantity and to generally act like a monopoly. Colluding firms set a price and produce a quantity that maximizes industry-wide economic profit, the same price and quantity that would be selected by a profit-maximizing monopoly. Once the industry-wide price and production are determined, each individual firm produces the quantity of output that equates the marginal cost of the firm to the marginal revenue for the industry.;collusion, efficiency;monopoly, short-run production analysis;game theory;oligopoly;collusion;explicit collusion;implicit collusion;cartel;market control;oligopoly, behavior

    Oligopoly

    • The first unit of this lesson, A Few Firms, begins this lesson with a look at the nature of oligopoly and how it is related to other market structures.
    • In the second unit, Structure, we see how markets with a small number of large firms are structured.
    • The third unit, Behavior, then looks at some of activities undertaken by oligopoly that are not seen in other market structures.
    • In the fourth unit, Some Graphs, we use a few graphs to examine different ways that oligopoly firms interact in the production of output.
    • The fifth and final unit, Taking Stock, then closes this lesson by considering the good and the bad of oligopoly and why it is often prone to government scrutiny.

    AUTONOMOUS INVESTMENT

    Business investment expenditures that do not depend on income or production (especially national income or even gross domestic product). That is, changes in income do not generate changes in investment. Autonomous investment is best thought of as investment that the business sector undertakes regardless of the state of the economy. It is measured by the intercept term of the investment line. The alternative to autonomous investment is induced investment, which does depend on income.
