BILATERAL MONOPOLY, FACTOR MARKET ANALYSIS: The analysis of a factor market characterized by monopsony dominating the buying side and monopoly dominating the selling side indicates that the factor price and quantity exchanged depends on the negotiating power of each side.

INVISIBLE HAND: The notion that buyers and sellers, consumers and producers, households and businesses, pursuing their own self-interests, do what's best for the economy--automatically, without any government intervention, as if guided by an invisible hand. This invisible hand was essential to the economic analysis of markets in Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations. It has continued to be cornerstone in conservative economic policies that call for limits on government intervention in the economy.

However, for an already efficiency allocation, a tax creates and inefficient wedge between the demand price and the supply price. This tax is generally paid partially by buyers and partially by sellers, which the tax incidence. Inefficiency arises because a tax reduces the total amount of consumer surplus and producer surplus, which is deadweight loss.
