Frequently Asked Questions

Why are monopoly prices always above the demand curve?

Because a monopoly’s marginal revenue is always below the demand curve, the price will always be above the marginal cost at equilibrium, providing the firm with an economic profit. Monopoly Pricing: Monopolies create prices that are higher, and output that is lower, than perfectly competitive firms.

How are demand and marginal revenue related in a monopoly?

To apply that rule to a monopoly firm, we must first investigate the special relationship between demand and marginal revenue for a monopoly. Because a monopoly firm has its market all to itself, it faces the market demand curve.

Why does a monopolist face a downward slope?

The straight line shown in the figure above is the market demand curve for a particular product. The monopolist firm selling the product faces a downward slope, as seen above. This is because the firm will have to reduce the price of the product if it wants to sell more.

What does a downward sloping demand curve mean?

The downward‐sloping market demand curve indicates that the new market price will be lower than before. Because the monopolist cannot price discriminate, it will have to sell all N + 1 units of output at the new lower price.
