 AmosWEB means Economics with a Touch of Whimsy!
 MARGINAL PRODUCT CURVE: A curve that graphically illustrates the relation between marginal product and the quantity of the variable input, holding all other inputs fixed. This curve indicates the incremental change in output at each level of the variable input. The marginal product curve is one of three related curves used in the analysis of the short-run production of a firm. The other two are total product curve and average product curve. The marginal product curve plays in key role in the economic analysis of short-run production by a firm in large part because economists are generally obsessed with marginal changes in production.

INELASTIC DEMAND: Relatively large changes in demand price cause relatively smaller changes in quantity demanded. Inelastic demand means that changes in the quantity demanded are not very responsive to changes in the demand price. An inelastic demand has a coefficient of elasticity less than one (the negative value is ignored). You might want to compare inelastic demand to elastic demand, inelastic supply, and elastic supply.

MARGINAL REVENUE, MONOPOLY

The change in total revenue resulting from a change in the quantity of output sold. Marginal revenue indicates how much extra revenue a monopoly receives for selling an extra unit of output. It is found by dividing the change in total revenue by the change in the quantity of output. Marginal revenue is the slope of the total revenue curve and is one of two revenue concepts derived from total revenue. The other is average revenue. To maximize profit, a monopoly equates marginal revenue and marginal cost.
