Short run equilibrium price and output under monopoly: short run equilibrium of the monopoly firm: in the short period, the monopolist behaves like any other firm a monopolist will maximize profit or minimize losses by producing that output for which marginal cost (mc) equals marginal revenue (mr. The theory of long-run profit-maximizing behaviour rests on the short-run theory that has just been presented but is considerably more complex because of two features: (1) long-run cost curves, to be defined below, are more varied in shape than the corresponding short-run cost curves, and (2) the long-run behaviour of an industry cannot be. Profit maximization is the short run or long run process by which a firm determines the price and output level that will result in the largest profit firms will produce up until the point that marginal cost equals marginal revenue. Since there is a positive economic profit in the short run, there should be entry of firms in the long-run resulting in an increase in the market quantity, a decrease in the market price, and firms in the industry earning zero economic profit. In a perfectly competitive market in long-run equilibrium, an increase in demand creates economic profit in the short run and induces entry in the long run a reduction in demand creates economic losses (negative economic profits) in the short run and forces some firms to exit the industry in the long run.

Long run profit maximisation if most firms are making super normal 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. Oligopoly includes many models and theories such as duopoly where are just two producers and which pricing decisions remind monopoly, kinked demand curve, which decreases economic profit, and cartel, which brings economic profit just for the short-run. The firm’s profit maximization problem since we are in the short run (sr) assume that factor 2 for example is ﬁxed, ie x2 =¯x2 (we just have our single factory) the ﬁrm’s problem then is to maximize proﬁts by choice of consumer theory, it will be a function of the prices in general,.

Profit maximization can increase a company’s gains in the short term, but over the long run it can can have negative repercussions for employees, owners and community stakeholders. The theory of monopolistic competition predicts that in the long run equilibrium, a monopolistically competitive firm will produce at the level in which price equals long-run average cost which of the following statements best describes the price, output, and profit conditions of monopolistic competition.
Profits are maximised both in the short run and the long run given these assumptions, the profit maximising model of firm can be shown under perfect competition and monopoly 1. Short-run equilibrium producers in monopolistically competitive markets, as well as all market types, are profit maximizers this means they will produce at the quantity for which their marginal benefit is maximized aka where marginal cost equals their marginal revenue (mc=mr. Learning objectives by the end of this section, you will be able to: calculate fixed costs, producer theory, and profits identify when firms will exit in the short-run.
