HEDONIC: Derived from the philosophy of hedonism (that happiness is the chief good in life), the notion that value is ultimately dependent on the satisfaction of wants and needs. The word hedonic is most often used together with the word price, as in hedonic price. This suggests the view that price is based on the satisfaction generated by consuming a good, regardless of the source of the satisfaction. This notion of hedonic is closely related to, and largely indistinguishable from, the more common concept of utility.

LERNER INDEX: The difference between price (p) and marginal cost (mc) as a fraction of price, that is [p-mc]/p. The Lerner index is usually taken as an indicator of market power because the larger the index, the larger the difference between price and marginal cost, that is, the larger the distance between the price and the competitive price. The Lerner index depends on the elasticity of demand. The Lerner index is also called the price-cost margin.

MARGINAL PRODUCT CURVE

A curve that graphically illustrates the relation between marginal product and the quantity of the variable input, holding all other inputs fixed. This curve indicates the incremental change in output at each level of a variable input. The marginal product curve is one of three related curves used in the analysis of the short-run production of a firm. The other two are total product curve and average product curve. The marginal product curve plays in key role in the economic analysis of short-run production by a firm.
