Firms operating as a monopoly and others which operate in a monopolistic market are very different and you will learn what makes them different, the different market structures, and the production quantity for profit maximization. With great practical examples, this course will ensure you understand the importance of different market structures, the impacts this will have on product pricing and the impact on a firm’s profitability.
