Question and answer
What happens to the supply curve when there is a decrease in production? a. Price will increase. c. Producers will produce more at each and every price. b. Price will decrease. d. Consumers will
increase purchases at each and every price.
a. Price will increase. Understanding demand is only half of the story. To understand the market we also need to understand supply. [ And as on the demand side of the equation, the basic law of supply is common sense: as prices rise, supply (quantity of X on the market) increases; as prices fall, supply decreases. In other words, when the price for a good goes up, suppliers of that good will
produce more. When the price of a good goes down, suppliers produce less. ]

Overtime in a perfect competition, what will happen to output, as compared to cost, from the suppliers’ point of view?
Weegy: If most firms are making abnormal profits in the short run there will be an expansion of the output of existing firms and we expect to see the entry of new firms into the industry. [ Firms are responding to the profit motive and supernormal profits act as a signal for a reallocation of resources within the market. The addition of new suppliers causes an outward shift in the market supply curve. Making the assumption that the market demand curve remains unchanged, higher market supply will reduce the equilibrium market price until the price = long run average cost. At this point each firm is making normal profits only. There is no further incentive for movement of firms in and out of the industry and a long-run equilibrium has been established. ] (More)
