3 3 types of economic competition
3.3 Types of Economic Competition system

  • 2 important characteristics in determining the type of competition

    • The number of firms competing in the market

    • The amount of similarity between the products of competing businesses

    • 4 types – Pure Competition, Monopoly, Oligopolies, Monopolistic Competition

Pure competition
Pure Competition system

  • Large number of suppliers offering very similar products

    • Agricultural products – no single supplier can raise the price without hurting themselves

  • Businesses have no control over price if they want to sell their products

Monopoly system

  • Opposite of pure competition

  • One supplier offering a unique product

  • Supplier has almost total control

  • Consumers have to accept the price

  • Few legal monopolies in the US

    • Microsoft?

    • DeBeers Diamonds

    • Standard Oil

Oligopolies system

  • A few businesses offer very similar products of services

    • If they work together they will be a monopoly, work against they will be pure competition

    • Airline industry

    • Usually if they want to increase prices they need to do it as a group or it won’t work

Monopolistic competition
Monopolistic Competition system

  • Most common type

  • Many firms competing with products that are somewhat different

  • Fewer the number of competitors and the greater the differences among the competitors’ products, the greater the control each firm will have on the market

3.4 Enhancing Economic Utility system

  • Economic Utility “Satisfaction” – the satisfaction a consumer receives from the consumption of a product

    • Higher utility if greater satisfaction

    • Marketers try to pick out the utility of a customer and prey on location, time, form, etc.
