REGULATORY PRICING: Government control over the price charge in a market, especially by a firm with market control. Price regulation is most commonly used for public utilities characterized as natural monopolies. If allowed to maximize profit without restraint, the price charged would exceed marginal cost and production would be inefficient. However, because such firms, as public utilities, produce output that is deemed essential or critical for the public, government steps in to regulate or control the price. The two most common methods of price regulation are marginal-cost pricing and average-cost pricing.

Topic: Problems <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Several problems prevent market deficiencies from being efficiently corrected by government action.

Government imperfections:

  • Voter Apathy: When people don't vote, leaders don't know what the public really wants.
  • Special Interest Groups: Those with influence, can adversely affect government policies.
  • Re-election Minded Politicians: Leaders who please only a few, won't represent everyone.
  • Complex Bureaucracies: Complexity keeps public workers from being responsible for their actions.

CIRCULAR FLOW

A model of the continuous movement of production, income, and the services of scarce resources that flow between producers and consumers. In particular, the circular flow is a model of the continuous production and consumption interaction among the four major sectors of the macroeconomy--household, business, government, and foreign--using the three macroeconomic markets--product, resource, and financial. The circular flow model provides a easy way of getting the "big picture" and of seeing how the key parts of the macroeconomy fit together.
