INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION: The manner in which a market or industry is organized or structured, especially in terms of the competitiveness of the firms making up the market or industry. This phrase is also used to mean the economic study of the organization or an industry. When used for the competitiveness of a market, the term market structure can be used interchangeably. Industrial organization is concerned with the competitiveness of market, what this means for market control by buyers or sellers, and how this affects the efficiency of production.

  • The key consideration is both firms will seek to produce output using the firm with the lowest marginal cost.

  • From a graphical standpoint, this is accomplished by horizontally summing the two marginal cost curves.
