Discussion

  This week we shall face at Monopolistic Competition.  This is where you, as a consumer, bestow most of your term.  In Monopolistic Competition, there are numerous companies selling congruous but not point results.  Put unequally, the result are bar, but not ripe substitutes. Because of the appealring-to enjoyment of superabundance, companies generally rival by advertising, services (for funds), disgrace indicates, disgrace faithfulness and result irrelativeiation past than by expense.  Thus, expenses of competing results incverse to be bar, but not point as they are in Ripe Competition. Since this dispense is where you - as a consumer - bestow most of your term and a lot of your currency, this week you are going to face at this dispense in possession in your daily animation.  When you go shopping this week, pay bar remarkfulness to result expenses and what notification they divulge you about how the results rival. A grocery fund is a amiable sample.  Look at the soda aisle and by viewing the expenses and the result locations on the stifles, which results are bar substitutes, sufficiently irrelativeiated that they own disgrace faithfulness (i.e., a conspicuous expense), etc.  Do the corresponding delay canned vegetables.  Or embark the corresponding observational trial in another cast of fund you generally general.  Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VRxhN7ajcY#action=share  Assignment: Watch the video overhead and underneathneath the Week 4 Videos, remark all videos, distinctly videos 7, 3 and 6.
