SHORT-RUN SUPPLY CURVE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: Market control by a monopolistically competitive 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. The small amount of market control by a monopolistically competitive firm means that its' price is NOT equal to marginal revenue, and thus it does NOT equate marginal cost and price. As such, a monopolistically competitive firm does not move along it's marginal cost curve. A monopolistic competition does not necessarily supply larger quantities at higher prices or smaller quantities at lower prices.

HORIZONTAL MERGER: The consolidation under a single ownership of two separately-owned businesses in the same industry. An example of a horizontal merger would be two soft drink companies merging to form a single firm. A horizontal merger should be contrasted with vertical merger--two firms in different stages of the production of one good, such that the output of one business is the input of the other; and conglomerate merger--two firms in totally, completely separate industries.

SHORT-RUN AGGREGATE MARKET

A macroeconomic model relating the price level and real production under the assumption that SOME prices are inflexible, especially resource prices. This is one of two aggregate market submodels used to analyze business cycles, gross production, unemployment, inflation, stabilization policies, and related macroeconomic phenomena. The other is the long-run aggregate market. The short-run aggregate market isolates the interaction between aggregate demand and short-run aggregate supply. The key assumption of this model is that SOME prices, especially resource prices, are inflexible. The primary result of this model is that the economy can achieve short-run equilibrium at real production that is either greater than or less than full-employment.
