AmosWEB means Economics with a Touch of Whimsy!

KINKED-DEMAND CURVE ANALYSIS: An analysis that seeks to explain rigid oligopolistic prices using the kinked-demand curve. The kinked demand curve contains two distinct segments, one for higher prices that is more elastic and one for lower prices that is less elastic. The corresponding marginal revenue curve contains a vertical segment at the existing or initial quantity. Because a profit-maximizing oligopolistic firm equates marginal cost to marginal revenue, marginal cost also can take on a range of values at the existing quantity. In other words, marginal cost can increase or decrease without inducing a profit-maximizing oligopolistic firm to change price or quantity.

AmosWEB is an Internet-based resource of economics information offered by AmosWEB LLC. AmosWEB LLC was established April 1, 2000 to publish economics information and instructional resources through the World Wide Web.

At AmosWEB, we take economics seriously, but with a touch of whimsy. We recognize the importance of economics to our lives, careers, and citizenship, but we try to have a little fun with it along the way. On the one had... serious. On the other hand... whimsical. A balance much like that of demand and supply.

AmosWEB began its Internet existence under the name AmosWORLD. (You might see AmosWEB listed as AmosWORLD in some search engines. AmosWorld.com is currently maintained by a talented artist named Amos Kmiec.) We have been providing economics information through the World Wide Web since the earliest days of the World Wide Web, when memory was measured in kilobytes, disks were floppy, and PPP was the primary way to get online.

Over the years, we've provided economics information to students, instructors, and web surfers on six continents (we're still working on Antarctic). We have consistently ranked in the top 10 percent of all websites on the Internet (according to Rank.com). Our most popular resource is the AmosWEB GLOSS*arama, an extensive glossary of economics terms and concepts. We also offer the increasingly popular AmosWEB Encyclonomic WEB*pedia, and encyclopedia of economics.

We're also very proud of the AmosWEB eTutor, a subscription service used by all sorts of students seeking a little extra help with their course work and the AmosWEB Programmed Learning System (A*PLS), an integrated online learning system designed for traditional classes, hybrid courses, and online distance learning.

The principle author and content developer of AmosWEB is Orley M. Amos, PhD, a Professor of Economics at Oklahoma State University with a couple of decades of instructional experience. Assistance has been provided over the years by Antonio Avalos, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Economics at California State University, Fresno.

AmosWEB LLC is presently based in Stillwater, Oklahoma with a branch office in Wichita, Kansas.

PRICE CHANGE, UTILITY ANALYSIS

A disruption of consumer equilibrium identified with utility analysis caused by changes in the price of a good, which likely results in a change in the quantities of the goods consumed. The change in the price alters the marginal utility-price ratio and forces a reevaluation of the rule of consumer equilibrium.

Taking A Ride On TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE

Our pedestrian excursion gives us a ground-level view of the economy, but it's certainly slow and time-consuming. If you're like me, you've probably thought once or twice about jumping into an Omni Motors XL GT 9000 sports coupe to speed us along the way. Or perhaps an Omni Airlines 30-day tourist excursion would make our trip faster and less exhausting. That's one nice thing about modern transportation, it's pretty quick and not too expensive. It also helps us get a whole lot closer to solving the unsolvable problem of scarcity. However, for a really good pedestrian view of transportation and how it helps us along, we'd better remain on foot.

This isn't me! What am I?

Cyrus McCormick not only invented the reaper for harvesting grain, he also invented the installment payment for selling his reaper.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

-- Mark Twain
