The Production Possibilities Curve


Ap economics mr bernstein1
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Economic Growth

  • Concave due to “Law of increasing opportunity costs”

Circular Flow Diagram

Demand Curves

  • A Shift in Demand is different from movement along the Demand Curve!!

AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Supply Curves

  • A Shift in Supply is different from movement along the Supply Curve!!


Ap economics mr bernstein6
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Equilibrium

  • Price is the adjustment mechanism: falls when

    there is a surplus, rises when there is a shortage


Ap economics mr bernstein7
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Simultaneous Shifts of Supply and Demand Curves

  • Example: Demand for Justin Beiber tickets decreases and Supply decreases

  • Equilibrium Price is ambiguous but Quantity change decreases (awww…)

  • Know all four possible combinations


Ap economics mr bernstein8
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Elasticity along the Demand Curve

  • Consumers are less price sensitive on inexpensive items

  • TR begins to fall as prices rise and Elasticity grows


Ap economics mr bernstein9
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Consumer Surplus and Producer Surplus

  • CS is the difference between what a consumer is willing to pay for a good or service and what they actually have to pay

  • PS is the difference between what a producer must receive to sell a unit and the actual price they receive

Deadweight Loss Example: The Effect of Taxes

Price Ceilings

  • Price ceiling is below equilibrium, creates shortage


Ap economics mr bernstein12
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Price Floor

  • Price floor is above equilibrium; creates surplus


Ap economics mr bernstein13
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Quotas (Quantity Controls)

  • Examples: limits, licenses; creates price “wedge”

Firm’s Cost Curves: Swoosh, Smirk and Smile

  • The MC curve intersects the U-shaped AC and AVC curves at their minimum points

AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Perfectly Competitive Firm

  • Produce at MR=MC

  • Profit = MR – ATC

  • In this case, zero

    economic profit…

  • This is long-run

    equilibrium…

  • Profit or loss if P > or < ATC

AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

The Short-Run Shut-Down Decision

  • Shut down when P < AVC

Ap economics mr bernstein17
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Long Run Average Costs

  • U-shaped LRATC is a series of U-shaped SRATCs – one for each level of fixed costs


Ap economics mr bernstein18
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Adjustment toward Long-Run Equil(Perf Comp)


Ap economics mr bernstein19
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Classic Monopoly Graph

  • Q at MR=MC; lower Q and higher P than Perfect Competition; long-run economic profit exists due to barriers to entry


Ap economics mr bernstein20
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Monopoly Reduces Societal Welfare


Ap economics mr bernstein21
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Price Regulation Restores Consumer Surplus


Ap economics mr bernstein22
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Monopolists will use Price Discrimination

  • Without competition, they take advantage of differing elasticities


Ap economics mr bernstein23
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Game Theory

  • Each player competes

    to maximize individual

    payoffs and ignores the

    effects of his/her action

    on the payoffs received

    by the rival

  • But Oligopolies engage

    in tacit collusion, tit for tat


Ap economics mr bernstein24
AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

Monopolistic Competition in the Long Run

  • Adjusts to normal profit, as in Perfect Competition

  • P*=ATC, tangent to ATC (not at minimum…)

Wage

Market Labor Supply

AP EconomicsMr. Bernstein

W*

Factor Market: Labor

  • Value of W* = MRPL; (MC = W)

Market Labor Demand

MFCL

Labor Supply

Imperfect Competition in the Labor Market

  • Hire where

    MPRL = MFCL

  • Monopsony pays

    W* < MRPL

    Remember, whether

    Perfect or Imperfect

    Markets, firms hire

    where MRPL = MFCL

W*

Wage

MRPL

Quantity of Labor (workers)

Equilibrium in the Market for Land and Capital

  • Supply curve for Land is very steep (inelastic)

Positive Externalities: MSB > MPB

  • Market underproduces

    vs. socially optimal outcome

  • Deadweight loss

Negative Externalities: MSC > MPC

  • Policy to eliminate:

  • Lump-sum tax does

    not affect MC so does not
