MASS PRODUCTION: The production of large quantities of virtually identical goods using large scale operations. Such production typically makes use of large factories that benefit from economies of scale. The "mass" aspect of mass production indicates: (1) that large quantities, or masses, of goods are produced and (2) that these goods are being purchased or consumed by the majority of the population, or large masses of people. Mass production is largely a consequence of the industrial revolution, which moved society from a rural-based population engaged in agrarian production to an urban-based population engaged in factory production.

HOMOGENEOUS GOOD: Goods that are either physically identical or at least viewed as identical by buyers. In particular, the producer of a good can not be identified from the good itself. This is a key assumption underlying the perfect competition market structure, and like other assumptions is only approximated in the real world. Agricultural products, metals, and energy goods come as close as any in the real world.

AVERAGE REVENUE

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. Using the longer term average revenue rather than price provides a connection to other related terms, especially total revenue and marginal revenue. When compared with average cost, average revenue indicates the amount of profit generated per unit of output produced. Average revenue is often depicted by an average revenue curve.
