SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLY: Market control by a monopoly firm means that it does not have a supply relation between the quantity of output produced and the price. By way of comparison a perfectly competitive firm does have a short-run supply curve. Market control by a monopoly means that it price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopoly firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopoly does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

DECLINE STAGE: The final stage of the product life cycle, characterized by a drastic drop off in profits. A company needs to decide how long to continue to support a product during this stage. Advertising and promotion can help maintain sales for a period of time. Ultimately, the cost-benefit tradeoff forces the business to discontinue the manufacturing of a product in this stage. Sometimes this happens quite rapidly and in some cases the product continues in this stage for many years.

RISK

The quantitative probability of different future outcomes occurring. The assignment of probabilities can be subjective (based on a "feeling") or objective (based on historical data). Risk is related to the concept of uncertainty, which is simply not knowing what the future holds. People have three alternative preferences when confronting risk -- risk aversion, risk neutrality, and risk loving. Risk aversion is key to the provision of insurance.
