The four basic market structure models are: perfect competition, monopoly, monopolistic competition, and oligopoly.

BANK ASSETS

What a bank owns, including loans, reserves, investment securities, and physical assets. Bank assets are typically listed on the left-hand side of a bank's balance sheet.
