TOTAL REVENUE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: The revenue received by a monopolistically competitive firm for the sale of its output. Total revenue is one of two parts a monopoly needs to calculate economic profit, the other is total cost. In general, total revenue is the price received for selling a good times the quantity of the good sold at that price. Because a monopolistically competitive firm has some degree of market control and faces a negatively-sloped demand curve, it charges a different price for a different quantities. If a monopoly sells a relatively small quantity, it charges a relatively high price. If it sells a relatively smaller quantity, it charges a relatively lower price. However, once the monopolistically competitive firms determines its' price/quantity combination, total revenue calculation is relatively straightforward, multiple the price times the quantity.

PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES FRONTIER: A curve that illustrates the production possibilities for the economy. A production possibilities curve (or PPC), like the one presented here, represents the boundary or frontier of the economy's production capabilities. That's why it's termed a production possibilities frontier (or PPF). As a frontier, it is the maximum production possible given existing (fixed) resources and technology. Producing on the curve means resources are fully employed, while producing inside the curve means resources are unemployed. The law of increasing opportunity cost is what gives the curve its distinctive convex shape.

TARIFFS

Taxes imposed by the government of one nation on imports from other nations. The primary goal of tariffs is to reduce imports and increase domestic production. As taxes, tariffs raise the demand price and lower the supply price, and thus reduce the quantity exchanged. Tariffs are one of three common foreign trade policies designed to discourage imports and/or encourage exports. The other two are import quotas and export subsidies.
