 PERFECT COMPETITION, SHORT-RUN PRODUCTION ANALYSIS: A perfectly competitive firm produces the profit-maximizing quantity of output that equates marginal revenue and marginal cost. This production level can be identified using total revenue and cost, marginal revenue and cost, or profit. Because a perfectly competitive firm faces a perfectly elastic demand curve, it efficiently allocates resources by equating price and marginal cost. In addition, the marginal cost curve above the average variable cost curve is the perfectly competitive firm's short-run supply curve.

Factor Demand

• The first unit of this lesson, Background, begins this lesson by laying the foundations for the study of factor demand.
• In the second unit, Derived Demand, we see how the demand for a factor of production is based on the demand for the good it produces.
• The third unit, The Curve, then derives the factor demand curve, which is the relation between the price employers are willing to pay and the quantity demanded.
• In the fourth unit, Determinants, we examine the three key determinants that shift the factor demand curve -- product price, factor productivity, and other factor prices.
• The fifth and final unit, Taking Stock, then closes this lesson with a review of factor demand and a preview of factor market analysis in other lessons.
