MARGINAL REVENUE CURVE, MONOPOLY: A curve that graphically represents the relation between marginal revenue received by a monopoly for selling its output and the quantity of output sold. The marginal revenue curve reflects the market control held by a monopoly firm. For a monopoly firm with complete market control, the marginal revenue curve is negatively-sloped. Moreover, for a given quantity of output, marginal cost is less than price, and the marginal revenue curve lies below the demand curve.

ACCOUNTING COST

An actual outlay or expenses incurred in the production of a good that shows up in a firm's accounting statements and records. Accounting cost is an explicit payment (that is, money changing hands) incurred by a firm. Accounting cost, while very important to accountants, company CEOs, shareholders, and the Internal Revenue Service, is only minimally important to economists. The reason is that economists are more interested in economic cost (also called opportunity cost), which is the value of foregone production.
