However, the livable wage presents a dangerous precedent in social reform because it is an anti-business policy which is caused from limiting free market capitalism. The livable wage tells companies what they must pay their employees, and the costs of the mandated wages are often many times higher than the federal Mininum wage. This regulation is unnecessary and hurts American business which then hurts the economy as a whole. Instead of a social reform that goes against business, politicians should use reforms that do not have unintended costs on business like lowering the taxes of low income families. Instead of a social reform that goes against the American ethos of supporting business, a policy lowering taxes for would be more efficient in helping low income families.
Government regulations to help prevent monopolies can actually make it more difficult for small businesses to survive. People portray monopolies as greedy businesspeople who want to take all the money away from consumers. Despite that, people often forget that monopolies are still disciplined by market forces. It does not make sense for a monopoly to set prices so high that consumers cannot purchase the product or to create a useless product that no one will buy (“Monopolies,” 2015). This is an easily understandable, but quickly forgotten fact.
Consumers do not voluntarily pay higher prices, but through protectionist policies, governments force them to pay more. Trade barriers give politicians control of the market and allow them to determine where their constituents spend their money. This bastardizes the laws of property rights and impedes liberty. Trade barriers allow the government to take from consumers for the benefit of producers. Fair trade assumes consumers rights are an injustice to the producer.
This in turn means America is losing money that can be income for another, or a source of investment that contributes to the growth of the country. The purpose of a protective tariff is to place a tax on foreign goods that are imported to a country as a way to protect domestic industries from international competition. The downside that has been stated is that it is damaging to the consumer since they aren't given the option to purchase the less expensive foreign goods. The benefits of the tariffs is that more money is going into the economy which places the tariff, in this case it is America. This disproves Rothbard's claim that inter-national tariffs are as absurd as inter-state tariffs; inter-states tariffs are absurd because they don't help the national economy, while international tariffs do.
(a) Deadweight loss, or as termed in the question, ‘welfare loss’, is the loss of consumer and producer surplus as a result of inefficient market activity, including monopolistic competition. According to the Theory of the Firm, monopoly power includes a much higher barrier of entry, which further impedes competition by increasing the start-up cost, which essentially creates high product prices, compared to the firms, which hold the monopoly power of production, and have already established production. As a result there a loss of productive and allocate efficiency, thus encouraging welfare loss, by decreasing consumer surplus due to limited competition and subsequent monopoly powers, which enable profit-maximization at a small production output, creating a deadweight loss. (b) By using anti-monopoly legislation and price regulations, two different forms of government interventional policies that are utilized to offset the market inefficiency, and subsequent loss of welfare, which monopoly power encourages, governments are able to reduce monopoly power in a sector of economy. The diagram below compares monopolistic competition and perfect competition: As the diagram above illustrates, the monopolistic profit maximization lies at the average market cost, representing a large deadweight loss in the triangle formed by ATC, AR and Monopoly Output.
However, this creates a problem in the host country, as there are fewer jobs. This impacts the economy because it increases the unemployment rate. Outsourcing financial services is unethical because it raises concerns relating quality, security and cultural differences. When discussing company activities and controls, the first ethical implication that arises is quality of service. Outsourcing results in low-quality output.
Consumers obviously benefit if this is the case since P=MC implies P=Marginal utility so that consumers are maximising their total utility(Under monopoly P>MC and therefore arguably, not the optimum). In the long run under monopoly, supernormal profits persist. Under perfect competition complete freedom of entry leads to the elimination of these profits and forces firms to produce at the bottom of the long run average cost curve. Under monopoly however, there are barriers to entry so as to prevent new firms from entering the industry and reducing the monopolist's profits to the normal level. Higher prices and lower output thus continue to persist in the long run.
The film explores a maze of illegal activities and provides evidence supporting the idea that the sale of counterfeited goods results in government instability, money laundering, corruption and a host of other problems around the world that globalization has brought upon today’s society. The wealthier countries exploit innocent people for economic growth and create unequal distribution of wealth, which leads to a decrease in over economic productivity and slows economic growth. Low-skilled workers in developed countries who will see a decrease in wages due to the competition that they face from low-skilled workers in developing countries who will see an increase in wages. Economists have come up with an idea that trade liberalism is the force behind the rise of inequality in the United States and Western Europe, because of the boost in trade with poor countries and fragmentation of means of production, that has caused low-skilled jobs to be outsourced. Where treatment of the workers are inhumane and the unequal distribution of wealth will lead to an increase in poverty because the inequality leads to harmful for development that is generated because too he pressure that is created by inequality, this is directed the states having to adopt to redistributive polici... ... middle of paper ... ... of individuals competing for low-skilled jobs.
A deadweight loss on the other hand is a case created by a decrease in supply due to market power and by this causing an increase in prices (Vatiero, 2009). There is always confusion between market size and market power. These two don’t mean the same thing however. Market powers sometimes engage in bad behaviors like setting prices to curb influence of other firms, creating barriers and overcapacity. Several countries have come up with useful legislation for example the antitrust so as to prevent organizations from gaining market power.
One of the oldest complaints against monopoly is that a monopolist will annex a competitive market by using the monopoly profits from his other markets to subsidize a price that his competitors cannot meet because it is below cost. An economy of scale is only one purpose behind the presence of monopolies. Monopolies likewise exist in view of sole access to some asset or innovation and due to the utilization of non-market intend to wipe out rivalry, including purchasing up rivals etc. Once a solitary firm winds up plainly settled in an industry that is described by natural monopoly, it is extremely troublesome for rivals to develop on account of the high expenses for
