FIRM: An organization that combines resources for the production and supply of goods and services. The firm is used by entrepreneurs to bring together otherwise unproductive resources. The key role played by a firm is the production of output using the economy's scarce resources. Firm's are the means through which society transforms less satisfying resources into more satisfying goods and services. If firms didn't do this deed, then something else would. And we would probably call those something elses firms.

MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION, EFFICIENCY

A monopolistically competitive firm generally produces less output and charges a higher price than would be the case for a perfectly competitive firm. In particular, the price charged by a monopolistically competitive firm is higher than the marginal cost of production, which violates the efficiency condition that price equals marginal cost. A monopolistically competitive firm is inefficient because it has market control and faces a negatively-sloped demand curve.
