TOTAL REVENUE CURVE: A curve that graphically represents the relation between total revenue received by a firm for selling its output and the quantity of output sold. It is used with the firm's total cost curve to determine economic profit. The marginal revenue curve, a key factor for determining the profit-maximizing level of a firm's output, is derived directly from the total revenue curve. This curve is constructed to capture the relation between total revenue and the level of output, holding other variables constant.

Topic: Changing Cost <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Opportunity cost is greater as we produce more calibrators. Why?
  • The law of increasing opportunity cost which says that the opportunity cost of producing a good increases as more and more of the good is produced.
  • Third rule of inequality. All resources are not equally suited to produce all goods.
  • First calibrator (A to B) uses resources best suited for calibrators and least suited for shoes.
  • Tenth calibrator (J to K) uses resources least suited for calibrators and best suited for shoes.
  • As more of a good is produced and supplied, opportunity cost increases.

ASSUMPTIONS, CLASSICAL ECONOMICS

Classical economics, especially as directed toward macroeconomics, relies on three key assumptions--flexible prices, Say's law, and saving-investment equality. Flexible prices ensure that markets adjust to equilibrium and eliminate shortages and surpluses. Say's law states that supply creates its own demand and means that enough income is generated by production to purchase the resulting production. The saving-investment equality ensures that any income leaked from consumption into saving is replaced by an equal amount of investment. Although of questionable realism, these three assumptions imply that the economy would operate at full employment.
