Where does monopoly come from; what conditions are necessary; what are the public policy responses? d. Excise tax on a monopoly E Only one supplier. Entry to market is blocked. E Single seller faces entire market demand curve (price maker, not price taker) What about Marginal Revenue (MR)? MR = dTR dq or dTR dQ TR = P x Q. To PC firm, P was a constant (price taker) To monopolist, P is a choice variable, so we must treat P as a function of Q So, MR = [(dP dQ) x Q] + [(dQ dQ) x P] or MR = P + Q (dP dQ) For a linear demand curve P = a b Q, MR = (a b Q) + (Q [-b]) = a 2 b Q So MR has the same intercept and twice the slope of the linear demand curve Algebraic example of monopoly industry Market Demand: P = 100 - .02Q So, total revenue = TR = P x Q = 100Q - .02Q 2 Marginal Revenue = dTR dQ =
