Relationship to other topics

Relationship to other topics…

  • Profits have to do with everything involved with business. If I could relate my topic to one specific other, it would be the profit maximizing point, MR=MC

  • When a firm is functioning at a point where their Marginal Revenue Curve is intersecting their Marginal Cost Curve, they are in a good position to maximize their profits.


Types of profit

  • Profits can also relate to “Costs.”

  • Implicit and Explicit costs have everything to do with profits

  • The more costs that a firm has, the more total revenue they need to make to keep their business going
