Example text

For q > 0, average cost is C(q; P )/q = 200−18q +q 2 . 1, for selected output quantities. 1. Now suppose q = 9. What is the incremental cost of one additional unit at this point? C(10; P ) − C(9; P ) = 1, 200 − 1, 071 = 129. Likewise, what is the incremental cost of ∆ = 3 more units, if q = 5? C(5 + 3; P ) − C(5; P ) = 960 − 675 = 285. 2. Notice how average cost is 183 for q = 1, declines to 119 (for q = 9), and then rises again. An economist interprets this as a region of economies of scale followed by diseconomies of scale.

Notice how the marginal cost of either product depends on how much of the other product is being produced. For example, at the point q1 = 2 units, the marginal cost of the first product is 20 if none of the second product is produced, but systematically declines when output of the second product is produced. The reason is the first and third factors are substitutes in producing the first product, but the third factor is also useful in producing the second product. Think of the third factor as a machine, and the first as labor.

1 What is a Good or Service But what is an output market, or what is a good or service? In economic terms, a good or service is defined by its what, where and when. A lecture on the economic theory of cost is a service (no comment necessary), but we must also specify where this lecture will be delivered and when. The same lecture delivered at another location or time is a distinct economic service. Similarly, a Corvette produced this month is economically distinct from a Corvette produced next month, just as a Corvette offered for sale in Los Angeles is distinct from one offered for sale in Miami.
