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.

PRINCIPAL-AGENT PROBLEM

A disconnection or conflict between the objectives and goals of the principal and those of the agent authorized to represent the principal.
