OLIGOPOLY AND MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: Oligopoly and monopolistic competition have some similarities, but also have a few important differences. Both are examples of imperfect competition on the market structure continuum between ideals of perfect competition and monopoly. However, oligopoly contains a small number of large firms and monopolistic competition contains a large number of small firms. The dividing line between oligopoly and monopolistic competition can be blurred due to the number of firms in the industry.

DEPOSITS: Bank accounts maintained by banks on behalf of customers. In a fractional-reserve banking system, one of the primary functions of a bank is to keep customer deposits safe. Banks offer a wide range of deposits, including checkable (or transactions) deposits, savings deposits, certificates of deposit, and money market accounts. Such deposits represent a sizable portion of the M1 money supply and as well as broader monetary aggregates -- M2 and M3. They also constitute the bulk of the liabilities of a typically bank.

MARGINAL UTILITY

The additional utility obtained from the consumption or use of an additional unit of a good. It is specified as the change in total utility divided by the change in quantity. Marginal utility indicates what each additional unit of a good is worth to a consumer and provides a theoretical basis for understanding market demand and the law of demand. Marginal utility generally declines with increased consumption of a good, a reflection of the law of diminishing marginal utility.
