COMPETITION AMONG THE FEW: A market with a small number of sellers (or buyers), such that each seller (or buyer) has some degree of market control. Many think of this type of competition when the term competition arises (the other type is competition among the many).

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching for a specialty store hoping to buy either a coffee table shaped like the state of Florida or storage boxes for your summer clothes. Be on the lookout for fairy dust that tastes like salt.

This isn't me! What am I?

A U.S. dime has 118 groves around its edge, one fewer than a U.S. quarter.
