 ELASTICITY ALTERNATIVES, DEMAND: The price elasticity of demand can fall into one of five categories--perfectly elastic, relatively elastic, unit elastic, relatively inelastic, and perfectly inelastic--based on the coefficient of elasticity. These five elasticity alternatives form a continuum ranging from perfectly elastic at one end to perfectly inelastic at the other. The "middle" of this continuum is occupied by unit elastic. in that the "unit" and the two "perfectly" are really borders, boundaries, and endpoints, most of the real world action involving the price elasticity of demand takes place in the two "relatively" alternatives--relatively elastic and relatively inelastic.

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.
