PRICE DISCRIMINATION: Charging different prices to different buyers for the same good. This is an age old practice for suppliers who have achieved some degree of market control, especially those with a monopoly. The reason for price discrimination, of course, is higher profit. To be a successful price discriminator you must be able to do three things--(1) have market control and be a price maker, (2) identify two or more groups that are willing to pay different prices, and (3) keep the buyers in one group from reselling the good to another group. In this way, you will be able to charge each group what they, and they alone, are willing to pay.

SELF CORRECTION, MARKET

The automatic process in which markets adjust from disequilibrium to equilibrium. With this self-correction process, the market price either increases or decreases in response to a shortage or a surplus to restore the balance between quantity demanded and quantity supplied. This process works automatically to achieve equilibrium without the need for outside intervention, such as government regulation.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel hoping to buy either a T-shirt commemorating last Friday (you know why) or a rotisserie oven that can also toast bread. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent.
