PERFECT COMPETITION, REALISM: Perfect competition is an idealized market structure that does NOT exist in the real world. While some real world industries might come relatively close to one or two of the four key characteristics of perfect competition, none matches all four sufficiently that they can be declared PERFECTLY competitively. Some industries come close on the large number of small firms and the identical product characteristics. A few industries have relatively good, although not perfect, information about prices and technology. However, almost all industries fall far short of the perfect mobility characteristics.

PROPRIETORS' INCOME: The excess of revenue over explicit production cost of owner-operated businesses. While proprietorships are the namesake and most important contributory to proprietors' income, many partnerships are also included. Because proprietors or partners of owner-operated businesses generally supply several factors of production--labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship--without explicitly paying for each factor separately, the income received by the owners usually include wage, interest, rent, and profit payments. However, in most it's virtually impossible to identify what portion of the owners income is payment for each factor, so they are combined as proprietors' income.

SHUTDOWN RULE

A rule stating that a firm minimizes economic loss by producing no output in the short run if price is less than average variable 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 loss minimization (if price is less than average total cost but greater than average variable cost).
