OPEN SHOP: An employment arrangement in which workers of a firm are free to join or not join a union because employment is unrelated to union membership. Because an open shop tends to limit the proportion of a firm's employees represented, this can significantly dilute a labor union's market control. Open shops are established in states that have right-to-work laws.

PERFECT COMPETITION: An ideal market structure characterized by a large number of small firms, identical products sold by all firms, freedom of entry into and exit out of the industry, and perfect knowledge of prices and technology. This is one of four basic market structures. The other three are monopoly, oligopoly, and monopolistic competition. Perfect competition is an idealized market structure that's not observed in the real world. While unrealistic, it does provide an excellent benchmark that can be used to analyze real world market structures. In particular, perfect competition efficiently allocates resources.

DEMAND CURVE

A graphical representation of the relation between the demand price and quantity demanded, holding all ceteris paribus demand determinants constant. A demand curve graphically illustrates the law of demand, the inverse relation between demand price and quantity demanded for a particular good. It is one half of the standard market model; a supply curve is the other half.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time at a flea market trying to buy either a pair of red goulashes with shiny buckles or a handcrafted bird feeder. Be on the lookout for spoiled cheese hiding under your bed hatching conspiracies against humanity.
