WEIGHT GAINING: An activity in which the transportation cost of the output is greater than the transportation cost of the inputs. Using the term weight to mean transportation cost, an activity is said to gain weight if the cost of moving the output to the market is greater than the cost of getting the inputs to the factory. A weight-gaining activity has a greater attraction to, and tends to locate near, the market for the output.

COMPETITION AMONG THE MANY: A market with so many buyers and sellers that none is able to influence the market price or quantity exchanged. This type of competition is the one most favored by economists (the other type is competition among the few). Compared to a three-person sprint, this is like a 10,000-entry road race. To win this race, I can't count on the other 9,999 coming up injured. To win, I may have to be the best I've ever been. I just might have to set a world record. This is the type of competition that brings out the best, most efficient use of resources.

AVERAGE-MARGINAL RELATION

A mathematical connection between a marginal value and the corresponding average value stating that the change in the average value depends on a comparison between the average and the marginal. This mathematical relation between average and marginal surfaces throughout the study of economics, especially production (average product and marginal product), cost (average total cost and marginal cost), and revenue (average revenue and marginal revenue). A similar relation is that between a total value and the corresponding marginal value.
