TACIT COLLUSION: Seemingly independent, but parallel actions among competing firms (mostly oligopolistic firms) in an industry that achieve higher prices and profits, much as if guided by an explicit collusion agreement. Also termed implicit collusion, the distinguishing feature of tacit collusion is the lack of any explicit agreement. They key is that each firm seems to be acting independently, perhaps each responding to the same market conditions, but the end result is the same as an explicit agreement. This should be contrasted with explicit or overt collusion that does involve a formal, explicit agreement.

FACTORY

The physical capital (building and equipment) at a particular location used for the production of goods and services. A factory, or plant, is usually a relatively large production operation (compared with something smaller, like a shop). While factory and firm are occasionally used synonymously they are not really the same. A given firm might own more than factory and a given factory might be owned by more than one firm.
