...Perfect competitive markets assume there are no externalities since the market is efficient. Each firm concentrates on making sure to cover its variable costs so as to maximize profit and marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost (Mankiw, 2011). Lipsey & Chrystal (2007) argue that all costs should be incurred by producers and all benefits to go to consumers. However, in the process of production, there are benefits and costs which are borne or received by the society and which the market participants do not account for. Negative externalities occur when private costs exceed social costs whereby social costs are incurred by society as a result of firm’s... ?Running Head: PERFECT COMPETITION Topic:...

...Benefit should be equal to Marginal Social Cost. Economists argue and explain that under certain circumstances there will be social efficiency. The two major conditions mentioned are that there should be perfect competition and there should be no externalities. Absence of externalities will mean that there will be no external costs and this will in turn ease the pressure and bring about social efficiency in the economy. As it has been mentioned earlier that the perfectly competitive market is just a theoretical extreme it does not exist in the real world. However, it is ideal and acts as a means for comparison with other market structures. In such markets firms are forced... ? Perfect Competition Perfect ...

...competitive firms cannot make supernormal profits in the long run butmonopolies can. Perfect Competition & Monopoly The producers make and sell their products in the markets, places where buyers and sellers meet, to achieve the highest possible profit they can get. So the goal of the firm is profit maximisation. We shall study the two types of markets – perfect competition and monopoly, and discuss why in the long run the former earns normal profit but the later earns more than that. Perfect competition is a type of market which fulfils all these five assumptions. 1. The size of the firm relative to the market is small. Hence, it has no influence on price. The firm... ?

...perfect competition, productive efficiency is achieved in the long run where the equilibrium price= minimum average total cost (min ATC) and hence the firm utilizes the lease-cost technology to thrive. Allocative efficiency on the other hand occurs where price= marginal cost (P=MC) as the price measures the benefits derived by the society from marginal units of a particular goods while the marginal cost measures the sacrifice or the cost to society of the forgone goods so as to produce a particular good. Allocative efficiency is thus attained under perfect competition dynamic adjustments in prices of commodities through automatic reorganization of economic forces...

The long-run change goes on until the market demand curve intersects with the market supply curve.

This stands in contrast to perfect competition where more goods are sold at lower prices. As monopoly proceeds, the consumers will ultimately forego the product, especially consumers who value the product or service more than they value its cost. This tends to create a deadweight loss. The deadweight loss also indicates that the combined surplus for the monopolists and the consumers is always lower than that for perfect competition. b) Why is MR less than...
