Regarding this, what happens in long run perfect competition?
In the long run, we assume that all Factors of Production are variable, which means that the entrepreneur can adjust plant size or increase their output to achieve maximum profit. Perfect Competition Long Run equilibrium results in all firms receiving normal profits or zero economic profits.
Beside above, when a perfectly competitive firm is in long run equilibrium price is equal to? If a perfectly competitive firm is in long-run equilibrium, then it is earning an economic profit of zero. If a perfectly competitive firm is in long-run equilibrium, then market price is equal to short-run marginal cost, short-run average total cost, long-run marginal cost, and long-run average total cost.
Considering this, how does long run equilibrium differ in a monopoly than perfect competition?
ADVERTISEMENTS: Monopoly price is higher than perfect competition price. In long period, under perfect competition, price is equal to average cost. In equilibrium, monopoly sells ON output at OP price but a perfectly competitive firm sells higher output ON1 at lower price OP1.
What happens in short run perfect competition?
When price is less than average total cost, the firm is making a loss in the market. Perfect Competition in the Short Run: In the short run, it is possible for an individual firm to make an economic profit. When price is less than average total cost, firms are making a loss.
