OLIGOPOLY AND MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: Oligopoly and monopolistic competition have some similarities, but also have a few important differences. 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.

MEDIATION: Intervention by an impartial third party to settle disputes between two others. The actions of this third party--the mediator--are not legally binding. Mediators are frequently used in collective bargaining negotiations when unions and their employers have reached an impasse. Mediators help both sides work out a satisfactory agreement. But neither side is legally compelled to follow the mediator's advice.

MARKET DEMAND

The combined demand of everyone willing and able to buy a good in a market. Market demand is one half of the market. The other is market supply. It is graphically represented by a negatively-sloped market demand curve, which can be derived by combining, or adding, the individual demands of every buyer in the market.
