MARGINAL ANALYSIS: A basic technique used in the economics that analyzes small, incremental changes in key variables. The economic obsession with marginal changes exists for at least two reasons.

RESOURCE PRICES: One of the five supply determinants assumed constant when a supply curve is constructed, and that shift the supply curve when they change. The other four are technology, other prices, sellers' expectations, and number of sellers. Resource prices, the prices paid to use the factors of production (labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship) affect production cost and thus producers' ability to sell goods. In general, if sellers face higher resource prices, then they have less ABILITY to sell goods.

The process or goal of obtaining the highest level of utility from the consumption of goods or services. The goal of maximizing utility is a key assumption underlying consumer behavior studied in consumer demand theory. Consumers are assumed to make choices, especially concerning the purchase of goods, such that they obtain the highest possible level of satisfaction. Utility maximization can be achieved at the peak of the total utility curve.
