Oligopoly did come up last year so perhaps it won't this year.

hate oligopolies... can do everything else apart from that and the odd competition policy q that for some odd reason confuses the heck out of me.

Hope price discrimination, monopolies, perfect comp, labour markets/ income inequality come up. they will literally be a gift from god lmfao

it was a essay question in 2014 but probably in a global or european context it will come up maybe if you look at past reports whatever wasn't done well they're most likely going to bring that topic up,

the game theory is to do with ologopolies and colluding where if firms act against each other they both will not win and will just lower their own prices down and thus revenues and profits as a result.
however, if they both decide to work together and collude, they can raise prices together, this means that customers will not benefit, only the firms benefit. the firms will benefit from higher revenue and profits.

however, as somebody mentioned above, oligopoly came up last year.
so it is unlikekly that this will come up again

I really hope a question on competition policy or CBA comes up, they're the only things I'm properly learning about. The rest is extremely vague to me, I couldn't talk about anything else in detail. Still predicted an a* though lmao

I got 100 UMS in Unit 1 and 80 UMS in Unit 2. I honestly don't know how, I think its because I did every multiple choice ever so could answer every possible question. I've been the worst in my class all year, hopefully if these two things I'm revising come up I can do as well as last year hahaha

Hm that's slightly odd .. The only thing I could possibly think he's referring to is that in the short run in perfect comp for example where normal profits are made... If you shifted away from that level p= mc or MC= AR.. Then you'd experience a fall in profits because either you'd lower your price or if you raised it consumers would switch to the cheaper producers ...

My thoughts on it - could be wrong

If MC>MR then they are not maximizing there potential revenue. and if MR>MC then prices will be very low. therefore in the short run MC=MR is the profit maximizing point
