PERFECT COMPETITION, REVENUE DIVISION: The marginal approach to analyzing a perfectly competitive firm's short-run profit maximizing production decision can be used to identify the division of total revenue among variable cost, fixed cost, and economic profit. The U-shaped cost curves used in this analysis provide all of the information needed on the cost side of the firm's decision. The demand curve facing the firm (which is also the firm's average revenue and marginal revenue curves) provides all of the information needed on the revenue side.

    Factor Market Equilibrium

    My duties for this lesson are to examine how the two sides of the factor market -- factor demand and factor supply -- come together to form the factor market. Like other markets, we are concerned with equilibrium and competition. The analysis of factor markets has an added bonus. It lets us examine market control from the buying side to balance other analysis of market control from the selling side. The cornerstone phrase capturing this buying-side market control is monopsony.

    • The first unit of this lesson, The Foundation, begins by reviewing factor demand and factor supply and seeing how they come together to form the factor market.
    • In the second unit, Market Control, we see how market control on the selling side of a factor market gives rise to assorted market structures, like monopsony.
    • The third unit, Perfect Competition, then takes a look at equilibrium in factor markets that operate under the guidelines of perfect competition.
    • In the fourth unit, Monopsony, we extend the analysis to factor markets with control on the buying side, especially monopsony.
    • The fifth and final unit, Bilateral Monopoly, then analyzes factor markets with monopoly control on the selling side to counter monopsony control on the buying side.
