MARGINAL-COST PRICING: A pricing scheme in which the price received by a firm is set equal to the marginal cost of production. This is not only the efficient outcome achieved by competitive markets, it is commonly used for comparison of other regulatory policies, such as average-cost pricing, that are used for public utilities (especially those that are natural monopolies). The bad thing about marginal-cost pricing for natural monopolies is that a normal profit is not guaranteed. The good thing about marginal-cost pricing is that marginal cost is equal to price, and the public utility is operating according to the price equals marginal cost (P = MC) rule of efficiency.

COMMONWEALTH VERSUS HUNT: A notable court case, decided by the Massachusetts Supreme Court in 1842, that declared labor unions were not illegal, which had been the existing interpretation of the law up to that time. This court case paved the way for the U.S. labor union movement, which continued in force for the next 100 years. While this case established the legality of a labor union, union activities (such as strikes) were not necessarily legal. This was much like making it legal to own a gun, but not legal to shot someone.

PRICE ELASTICITY OF DEMAND

The relative response of a change in quantity demanded to a change in price. More specifically the price elasticity of demand is the percentage change in quantity demanded due to a percentage change in price. This notion of elasticity captures the demand side of the market. A comparable elasticity on the supply side is the price elasticity of supply. Other notable demand elasticities are income elasticity of demand and cross elasticity of demand.
