CLOSED SHOP: An employment arrangement, usually written into a collective bargaining agreement, in which a firm is allowed to hire only labor union members. Because this gives a labor union complete control over the labor services supplied to a particular firm, it was one of the earliest methods used by labor unions to monopolized a labor market. However, closed shops were outlawed by the Taft-Hartley Act passed in 1947 and has been largely supplanted by union shops.

    Oligopoly

    • The first unit of this lesson, A Few Firms, begins this lesson with a look at the nature of oligopoly and how it is related to other market structures.
    • In the second unit, Structure, we see how markets with a small number of large firms are structured.
    • The third unit, Behavior, then looks at some of activities undertaken by oligopoly that are not seen in other market structures.
    • In the fourth unit, Some Graphs, we use a few graphs to examine different ways that oligopoly firms interact in the production of output.
    • The fifth and final unit, Taking Stock, then closes this lesson by considering the good and the bad of oligopoly and why it is often prone to government scrutiny.

    VALUE IN USE

    The satisfaction of wants and needs provided by the direct consumption of goods and services. Acquiring value from the use of goods and services is really the ultimate goal of economic activity. It is the final step in the production, allocation, and consumption activities that are undertaken to address the fundamental problem of scarcity. Value in use should be contrasted with the similar phrase, value in exchange.
