UNEMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS: The unemployment or resources, especially labor, is one of the more important macroeconomic issues facing economists and government leaders. The two key problems are: personal hardships and lost production. When resources don't produce goods, their owners don't earn income. The loss of income results in less consumption and a lower living standard. If fewer resources are engaged in production, fewer goods and services are produced. A decline in the income, consumption, and production associated with unemployment triggers further declines in income, consumption, and production. Members of society who might escape the direct, immediate personal hardships of unemployment can succumb to the indirect, multiplicative problems of lost production.

MARGINAL REVENUE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION

The change in total revenue resulting from a change in the quantity of output sold. Marginal revenue indicates how much extra revenue a monopolistically competitive firm receives for selling an extra unit of output. It is found by dividing the change in total revenue by the change in the quantity of output. Marginal revenue is the slope of the total revenue curve and is one of two revenue concepts derived from total revenue. The other is average revenue. To maximize profit, a monopolistically competitive firm equates marginal revenue and marginal cost.
