PERFECT COMPETITION, LOSS MINIMIZATION: A perfectly competitive firm is presumed to produce the quantity of output that minimizes economic losses, if price is greater than average variable cost but less than average total cost. This is one of three short-run production alternatives facing a firm. The other two are profit maximization (if price exceeds average total cost) and shutdown (if price is less than average variable cost).

DECREASING-COST INDUSTRY: A perfectly competitive industry with a negatively-sloped long-run industry supply curve that results because expansion of the industry causes lower production cost and resource prices. For a decreasing-cost industry the entry of new firms, prompted by an increase in demand, causes the long-run average supply curve of each firm to shift downward, which decreases the minimum efficient scale of production.

PROGRESSIVE TAX

A tax in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is greater for higher income levels. A progressive income tax exists if taxpayers with more income pay a higher tax rate relative to income as income increases. A progressive tax is one of three alternations. The other two are proportional tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is the same for all income levels, and regressive tax, in which the proportion of income paid in taxes is smaller for higher income levels.
