TOTAL REVENUE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: The revenue received by a monopolistically competitive firm for the sale of its output. Total revenue is one of two parts a monopoly needs to calculate economic profit, the other is total cost. In general, total revenue is the price received for selling a good times the quantity of the good sold at that price. Because a monopolistically competitive firm has some degree of market control and faces a negatively-sloped demand curve, it charges a different price for a different quantities. If a monopoly sells a relatively small quantity, it charges a relatively high price. If it sells a relatively smaller quantity, it charges a relatively lower price. However, once the monopolistically competitive firms determines its' price/quantity combination, total revenue calculation is relatively straightforward, multiple the price times the quantity.

BUSINESS CYCLE PHASES: The recurring, but irregular, pattern of business cycles can be divided into two basic phases -- expansion and contraction. An expansion is a period of increasing economic activity and a contraction is a period of declining economic activity. These two phases are marked by two transitions. The transition from expansion to contraction is termed a peak and the transition from contraction to expansion is termed a trough. The early portion of an expansion is often referred to as a recovery.

TOTAL VARIABLE COST AND TOTAL PRODUCT

Because variable cost is largely associated with the cost of employing at least one variable input in the short run, the total variable cost curve can be derived from the total product curve. This admittedly simplistic connection between total product and total variable cost is designed to illustrate the fundamental role that the law of diminishing marginal returns plays in the slope and shape of the total variable cost curve. Because he slope of the total variable cost curve, which is also the slope of the total cost curve, is marginal cost, this analysis also indicates how the law of diminishing marginal returns relates to marginal cost.
