EFFICIENT: The state of resource allocation the exists when the highest level of consumer satisfaction is achieved from the available resources. Competitive markets, absent of any market failure and especially market control by either side, is efficient. In particular, this feat is accomplished when the price buyers are willing and able to pay for a good--based on the satisfaction obtained--is equal to the price sellers need to charge for a good--based on the opportunity cost of production. In other words, the value (satisfaction) of stuff given up to get a good is the same as the value (satisfaction) of the good produced. Satisfaction won't increase by producing more of either.

Lesson 7: Market | Unit 5: The Method Page: 20 of 22

Topic: Too Much Production <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

This market has a 50-cent price and a 400-tape quantity in equilibrium.
  • Note the demand price and the supply price if the quantity is 500 tapes.
  • The demand price is 40 cents. This is the value of the good produced.
  • The supply price is 60 cents. This is the value of goods not produced.
  • Producing this quantity is the same as giving up 60 cents and getting 40 cents in return.
  • 500 tapes is not an efficient use of resources

VARIABLE COST

In general, cost that changes with changes in the quantity of output produced. More specifically, variable cost is combined with the adjectives "total" and "average" to indicate the overall level of variable cost or the per unit variable cost. Variable cost depends on the amount produced. If there is no production, then there is no variable cost.
