SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE: For a perfectly competitive firm, the marginal cost curve that lies above the average variable cost curve. This segment of the marginal cost guides a perfectly competitive firm's profit maximizing production as it equates price to marginal cost. Because the marginal cost curve is positively sloped (due to the law of diminishing marginal returns), each firm's supply curve and the market supply curve are also positively sloped. The law of diminishing marginal returns thus provides an explanation for the law of supply. However, this only works for firms with NO market control. Monopoly, monopolistic competition, and oligopoly, with market control, do not achieve the same result.

DECLINE STAGE: The final stage of the product life cycle, characterized by a drastic drop off in profits. A company needs to decide how long to continue to support a product during this stage. Advertising and promotion can help maintain sales for a period of time. Ultimately, the cost-benefit tradeoff forces the business to discontinue the manufacturing of a product in this stage. Sometimes this happens quite rapidly and in some cases the product continues in this stage for many years.

FACTOR DEMAND ELASTICITY

The elasticity of a factor demand curve is affected by four items: (1) the price elasticity of demand for the good produced, (2) the production function technology and elasticity of marginal physical product, (3) the ease of factor substitutability, and (4) the share of the factor's cost relative to total cost. Changes in any of these four items cause the price elasticity of factor demand to change. In other words, the quantity of factor services demanded becomes more or less sensitive to changes in the factor price.
