User: A basic difference between microeconomics and macroeconomics is that microeconomics

Weegy: A basic difference between microeconomics and macroeconomics is that microeconomics is concerned with individual businesses and consumers, including considerations for consumer buying habits with relation to a particular individual or one business. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, looks at the economy on a larger scale and considers the financial activities of an entire country, or numerous countries that affect each other financially.



User: The distinction between supply and the quantity supplied is best made by saying that

Weegy: The answer is: the quantity supplied is represented graphically by a curve and supply as a point on that curve associated with a particular price

User: After several years of slow economic growth, world demand for petroleum began to rise rapidly in the 1990s. Much of the increase in demand was met by additional supplies from sources outside the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). OPEC, during this time, was unable to restrain output among members in its effort to lift oil prices. What best describes these events?

Weegy: The rise in demand reflects a movement down along the demand curve as supply shifted to the right when suppliers produced more oil.

User: Price elasticity of demand is the:

Weegy: Elastic - When a change in price results in an even bigger change in quantity demanded. e.g. Cars Inelastic - When a change in price results in an even smaller change in quantity demanded, e.g. cigarettes, alcohol, etc. Source(s): Economics student

Weegy: A firm's demand for labor is derived from the The demand for labour comes from the employer. We shall start with this side of the market.

User: ) Owen runs a delivery business and currently employs three drivers. He owns three vans that employees use to make deliveries, but he is considering hiring a fourth driver. If he hires a fourth driver, he can schedule breaks and lunch hours so all three vans are in constant use, allowing him to increase deliveries per day from 60 to 75. This will cost an additional $75 per day to hire the fourth driver. The marginal cost per delivery of increasing output beyond 60 deliveries per day

Weegy: Marginal cost is the cost of producing one more unit of good. If Owen employs ONE MORE driver, he has to pay an ADDITIONAL $75 per day.

User: A significant difference between monopoly and perfect competition is that

Weegy: Perfect competition is the market in which there is a large number of buyers and sellers. The goods sold in this market are identical. A single price prevails in the market. On the other hand monopoly is a type of imperfect market. [ The number of sellers is one but the number of buyers is many. A monopolist is a price-maker. In fact monopoly is the opposite of perfect competition. Firm under perfect competition and the firm under monopoly are similar as the aim of both the seller is to maximise profit and to minimise loss. The equilibrium position followed by both the monopoly and perfect competition is MR = MC. Despite there similarities, these two forms of market organization differ from each other in respect of price-cost-output. There are many points of difference which are noted below. (1) Under perfect competition there are a large number of buyers and sellers in the market competing with each other. The price fixed by the industry is accepted by all the firms operating in the market. As against this under monopoly, there is only one single seller but a large number of buyers. The distinction between, firm and industry disappears under this type of market situation. (2) The average revenue curves under competition and monopoly take different shapes. The average revenue (price) curve under perfect competition is a horizontal straight line parallel to OX-axis. The industry demand curve or revenue curve slopes downward from left to right. But under monopoly the firm is itself the industry. There is only one demand curve common both to the monopoly firm and monopoly firm and monopoly industry. The average revenue curve under monopoly slopes downward and its corresponding marginal revenue curve lie below the average revenue curve. Under perfect competition MR Curve is the same as AR Curve. (3) Under perfect competition price equals marginal cost at the equilibrium output, but under monopoly equilibrium price is greater than marginal cost. Under perfect competition marginal revenue is the same as average revenue at all levels of output. ]

User: A monopoly firm is different from a competitive firm in that

User: The difference between a perfectly competitive firm and a monopolistically competitive firm is that a monopolistically competitive firm faces a

Weegy: A perfectly competitive firm will maximize profit when P=MC=MR, It is a price taker. In the long run, it will produce at the minimum average total cost.Monopolistically competitive firm will maximize when MC=MR. [ It has a market power.It won't produce at minimum average cost even in the long run - ]

Weegy: B. reduce negative externalities elsewhere in the economy
bhebhekoh|Points 90|

User: When negative externalities are present, market failure often occurs because

Weegy: In economics, an externality, or transaction spillover, [ is a cost or benefit that is not transmitted through prices[1] and is incurred by a party who did not agree to the action causing the cost or benefit.[dubious ? discuss] The cost of an externality is a negative externality, or external cost, while the benefit of an externality is a positive externality, or external benefit. ]
