INSIDER TRADING: The buying and selling of corporate stock or other financial instruments based on knowledge that is not widely available to the general public. Insider trading is most often undertaken by corporate executives or directors using information that they have acquired by working "inside" the company. Insider trading is illegal because it gives an unfair advantage to those on the inside. The president of a pharmaceutical company might be inclined to sell stock in the company using advanced information that the government is about to decline the patent application for a new drug.

PERFECT COMPETITION, LOSS MINIMIZATION

A perfectly competitive firm is presumed to produce the quantity of output that minimizes economic losses, if price is greater than average variable cost but less than average total cost. This is one of three short-run production alternatives facing a firm. The other two are profit maximization (if price exceeds average total cost) and shutdown (if price is less than average variable cost).

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a garage sale hoping to buy either a T-shirt commemorating next Thursday or a birthday gift for your uncle. Be on the lookout for slightly overweight pizza delivery guys.
Your Complete Scope

This isn't me! What am I?

There were no banks in colonial America before the U.S. Revolutionary War. Anyone seeking a loan did so from another individual.
"And while the law of competition may be sometimes hard for the individual, it is best for the race, because it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department. "

-- Andrew Carnegie, entrepreneur
