  1. Marginal Revenue and Marginal CostProfit Maximization in the Short Run

  2. Monopolistic competition Imperfect competition • Oligopoly • Monopolistic competition • Firms have some market power including the ability to change product price • Produce a quantity where price is greater then marginal cost

  3. Revenue with Market Power Q P TR MR 0 $21 $0 ---- 1 $19 $19 $19 2 $17 $34 $15 3 $15 $45 $11 4 $13 $52 $7 5 $11 $55 $3 6 $9 $54 - $1 D 7 $7 $49 - $5 8 $5 $40 - $9 9 $3 $27 - $13 MR

  5. Short-run Equilibrium Profit maximization • When MR > MC – increase production • When MR < MC – decrease production • When MR = MC – Maximum profit • Produce quantity where MR = MC • Intersection of the marginal-revenue curve and the marginal-cost curve

  6. Short-run Equilibrium Profit Max: MR = MC MC Price D MR
