PRICE DISCRIMINATION: Charging different prices to different buyers for the same good. This is an age old practice for suppliers who have achieved some degree of market control, especially those with a monopoly. The reason for price discrimination, of course, is higher profit. To be a successful price discriminator you must be able to do three things--(1) have market control and be a price maker, (2) identify two or more groups that are willing to pay different prices, and (3) keep the buyers in one group from reselling the good to another group. In this way, you will be able to charge each group what they, and they alone, are willing to pay.

CHANGE IN DEMAND: A shift of the demand curve caused by a change in one of the demand determinants. In essence, a change in demand is caused by any factor affecting demand EXCEPT price. This concept should be contrasted directly with a change in quantity demanded. You should also review the terms change in quantity supplied and change in supply, too. A change in demand is a change in ALL demand price-quantity demanded pairs, meaning that each price is matched up with a different quantity (which is illustrated as a shift of the demand curve). And this change in demand is caused by a change in any of the demand determinants. In contrast, a change in quantity demanded is a change from one price-quantity pair to the another (which is illustrated as a movement along a given demand curve).

MARGINAL RETURNS

The change in the quantity of total product resulting from a unit change in a variable input, holding all other inputs fixed. Marginal returns is an older and more generic term for marginal product. While marginal product has largely replaced marginal returns in most discussions of short-run production, the phrase does persist in a few terms like the law of diminishing marginal returns.
