Document Summary

1. the following is a total-product schedule for a resource. Assume that the quantities of other resources the firm employs remain constant. If the product the firm produces sells for a constant per unit, the marginal revenue product of the third unit of the resource is. 3 labor unions may attempt to raise wage rates by increasing the supply of labor. forcing employers, under the threat of a strike, to pay above-equilibrium wage rates. decreasing the demand for labor. increasing the price of complementary resources. A price increase of the product increases mrp and demand for the resource. B technological advances increase marginal product and therefore mrp/demand. C mrp eventually falls because of diminishing marginal returns. 5 the graph below shows a local labor market. Suppose mechanics in this local labor market collectively form a union and bargain for a. 6 use the same graph above to answer the following question.
