“Production Costs and Perfect Competition” Please respond to the following:
- You are the owner of a fast-food restaurant. Given a new item that you recently advertised, you experience additional demand for your business that you do not want to ignore. Identify your fixed and variable costs at your fast-food restaurant, and explain the changes to each of these costs, given the increased demand.
- Examine a perfectly competitive firm that you have recently purchased a product from, focusing specifically on how it relates to the characteristics of the market.
