SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLY: Market control by a monopoly firm means that it does not have a supply relation between the quantity of output produced and the price. By way of comparison a perfectly competitive firm does have a short-run supply curve. Market control by a monopoly means that it price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopoly firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopoly does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

As such, the real world is often faced with the lesser of two evils--imperfect markets or imperfect government.
