ECONOMY: The system of production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services that a society uses to address the problem of scarcity. The essential task of an economy is to transform resources into useful goods and services (the act of production), then distribute or allocate these products to useful ends (the act of consumption). Virtually all economies accomplish this task through a combination of decisions made through voluntary market exchanges and involuntary government rules and regulations.

AVERAGE REVENUE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION

The revenue received for selling a good per unit of output sold, found by dividing total revenue by the quantity of output. Average revenue often goes by a simpler and more widely used term... price. For a monopolistically competitive firm average revenue is greater than marginal revenue. Average revenue for a monopolistically competitive firm is often depicted by a negatively-sloped average revenue curve.
