Economies of Scale *Law of diminishing marginal returns DOES NOT apply since there are no fixed resources Increasing Marginal Returns:
MP increases as
L (quantity of labor) increase Diminishing Marginal Returns:
MP decreases as L increases Production Function - the mechanism for combining production resources, with existing technology, into finished goods Short-Run Costs Total Fixed Costs (TFC) - cost that do not vary with the level of output, even if at zero Unit 3: Cost of Production and Pure Competition by: Ying Liu, Esai Orozco, Amy Sanchez, Michael Rios, and David Gayosso Chapters: 22 and 23 E-Commerce "Electronic Commerce" a type of firm that buys and sells products online What Are Your Cost? storage $12/month Explicit Costs $12 + $50 + $100 = $162 - the "out of pocket" payments for other
people's resources. Internet Speed $50/month Website Design Software $100/month Toby only accounted for his explicit costs! Economist look at both Explicit and Implicit Cost. Implicit Cost - are the opportunity cost that firms pay for using their own resources. + = Implicit Costs Economic Cost = Explicit Cost + Implicit Cost Economic Profit = TR - Economic Cost Accounting Profit = $1000 - $444 = $556 Toby's Total Revenue (TR) = $1000 $20/hour * 144 hours/month ($2880) $10/hour * 60 hours/month ($600) $3480 + = $12 per seller * $ 6 per buyer = $18 per deal Economic Profit = $1000 - $444 - $3480 = -$2924 Short-Run - a time period when at least one production input is fixed. Fixed Input - cannot be changed, to respond to a change in product demand Long Run - all inputs are variables 3 production measures Total Product (TP) - the total quantity, or total output, of a good produced at each quantity employes Marginal Product (MP) - the change in total product resulting from a change in labor input. Average Product (AP) - a measure of average productivity and is total product divided by the amount of labor employed AP = TP/L MP = TP / L if labor is changing one unit at a time MP = TP Law of Diminishing Marginal Returns - as successive units of variable resource are added to a fixed resource, beyond some point the marginal product falls (does not apply in the Long Run) 3 stages of Returns-Stage I Stage II Stage III Negative Marginal Returns:
MP becomes negative as L increases
TP is decreasing because workers get in each other's way. Total Variable Costs (TVC) - costs that change with the level of output. If output is zero, so are variable costs. Total Cost (TC) - sum of total fixed and total variable costs at each level of output TC = TVC + TFC Marginal Cost (MC) - the additional cost of producing one more unit of output Average Fixed Cost (AFC) - total fixed cost divided by output Average Variable Cost (AVC) - total variable cost divided by output Average Total Cost (ATC) - total cost divided by output MC = AFC =TFC/Q AVC = TVC/Q ATC = TC/Q Variable Inputs - inputs that can be adjusted to meet changes in demand Units of Labor Total Product 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 0 packages 5 15 30 40 45 40 30 Units of Labor Total Product 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 0 packages 5 15 30 40 45 40 Marginal Product - 5 - 0 = 0 10 15 10 5 - 5 - 10 7 30 Units of Labor Total Product 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 0 packages 5 15 30 40 45 40 Marginal Product - 5 - 0 = 0 10 15 10 5 - 5 - 10 7 30 Average Product - 5/1 = 5 7.5 10 10 9 6.67 4.29 TP is increasing at an increasing rate due to SPECIALIZATION TP is increase at a decreasing rate because with fixed resources, each additional worker adds less and less -When MP increase, MC falls
-MP and MC are "mirror" images of one another
-When MC is below ATC, it is pulling the average down
-MC intersect the ATC at its lowest point
-MC falls and rises again because of the Law of Diminishing Marginal Returns Production Costs Graphic Representation Change in Total Cost/Change in Q Quantity

How do we Shift Cost Curves? By shifting the FC or VC -Change of FC ONLY affects
-Change of VC affects MC, AVC,
and ATC In the LONG RUN~~~ -All resources are variable
-Plant size is changeable
-Long run ATC is made up of all the short run ATCs' *Economies of Scale-long run average cost decrease due to production techniques *Constant Returns to Scale-long run average cost is at its lowest point *Dis-economies of Scale-long run average cost increase because the firm becomes unmanageable Price Quantity Economies
