RIVAL CONSUMPTION: Consumption of a good by one person imposes a cost on, or prevents consumption of the good by, another person. Some goods, like food, have extremely rival consumption. One person, and only one person, gets the benefit. Other goods, like national defense, have no consumption rivalry, everyone can benefit simultaneously without imposing a cost on others. This is one of the two key characteristics of a good (the other is excludability) that distinguishes between common-property goods, near-public goods, private goods, and public goods.

CHANGE IN QUANTITY SUPPLIED: The movement along a supply curve caused by a change in the price of the good. This should be contrasted directly with a change in supply. You might also want to review the terms change in quantity demanded and change in demand, as well. A change in quantity supplied means that we have identified a NEW quantity on the existing supply curve. In contrast, a change in supply means that we have changed, moved, or shifted, the entire supply curve, the whole range of prices and quantities has changed.

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.
