II) PROFIT MAXIMIZING FOR A MONOPOLISTICALLY COMPETITIVE FIRM

▪ Since the monopolistically competitive firm has some price-making power, we know it can affect its profit by controlling both its level of output Q AND its price P. ▪ As a result, the monopolistically competitive firm will produce a Q where profit is maximum (Q* or profit-maximizing level of output) and THEN find out the maximum price P* it can charge for that output. A) Choosing Q* using the MR = MC approach: THE PROFIT-MAXIMIZING RULE

B) Pricing decision: After deciding what the profit-maximizing level of output is, the monopolistically competitive firm will set the highest price the market will allow for that level of output. This is exactly what the demand curve tells us.

...personality differences between Mike and Marty Scanlon? Freud would explain the personality differences between the Mike and Marty Scanlon by stating that Mike Scanlon encountered some type of conflict or fixation during one of his psychosexual stages in life, most likely the phallic stage. The phallic stage of personality development results when a child identifies with the same-sex parent in order to resolve internal conflict. If problems occur during this stage, they might produce an adult who fails to develop a conscience and has improper sex-role behavior.

Psychoanalyizing Mike Tyson

...MIKE TYSON PSYCHOANALYTIC REPORT PSYCHOLOGY DR WHITELY QUINISE CAMPBELL August 26, 2014 I chose for my subject Michael Gerard “Mike” Tyson. Mike Tyson is an American retired professional boxer. What attracted me to pick Mike Tyson was that I felt that he was a gentle giant that has been misunderstood in this life. So with this psychoanalytic study we are going to break down the myths that people think about him. I know this is not supposed to be a biography about the life of Mike Tyson; but to give some insight on which of the 7 psychology’s major perspectives I chose you have to know a little about his background. At an early age Tyson’s parent separated, leaving him to be raised by a single mother, he witnessed a horrific and gruesome atmosphere of crime, drugs, and violence. He had never had a physical altercation at that point in his life, but after continually being bullied Tyson finally stood up for himself when another boy grabbed his pet pigeon and broke its neck. Tyson describes that as his first fight, and it was the one that started his continual fighting in the streets and also the development of his criminal behavior. I think that the early stages of his life fall under the Socioculture perspective level. The values and beliefs transmitted from his social and cultural environment played a huge part in all of the trouble that he got into as a child and as adolescent. John Locke once proposed that humans are born with a blank slate (tabula rasa) into the...

However you may avoid eating when you are upset or having trouble coping with your feelings. You may run from food rather than running to food to cope. * I am happy about my scores because I rather not eat with my emotions because I tend to get mad at myself a lot when I play sports and if I were to eat every time I got angry with myself… I would be HUGE!!! How can you improve your eating habits? If you live on campus, how can you improve your eating in the cafeteria? I can improve my eating habits by taking in more fruits and vegetables. Eating in the café has a big disadvantage because I see food that I don’t normally eat but its so tempting that I just want to eat it and its bad for me, so I can improve my eating habits in the café by not being so tempted to eat that bad stuff and lean more towards the healthy side like the salads and fruits. Do you eat when you are emotional? If so, what are some other activites you can do to change this habit? If not, what coping techniques do you use instead of eating? When I’m emotional I do not tend to eat, that is the last thing I want to do. I tend to cope my feelings with music or just thinking about other things to get my mind off of what just happened or what is happening in my life....

The Case of Mike and Marty Scanlon

... disciplined and organized. Marty was quit, sober, and retiring. He was sympathetic, kind and appreciative, stable, calm and secure. Mike was the opposite, preference for variety, careless, impulsive and disorganized. Mike was talkative, fun loving and socialable. 3. Temperament plays a major part in the differences in Mike and Marty’s personalities. Temperament is quite consistent with significant stability from infancy well into adolescence. It is clear that certain personality traits have substantial genetic components, and that heredity and environment interact to determine personality. 4. Marty would be achieving self actualization a state of self-fulfillment in which people realize their highest potential, each in a unique way. People develop a positive regard that reflects the desire to be loved and respected. 5. Each conception of intelligence represents a instance in which more intelligent people are better able to use the resources of their environment that are less intelligent people, a distinction that is presumably basic to any definition of intelligence. It is clear that these conceptions represent very different views of intelligence. Psychologist Howard Garner has taken a different approach from traditional thinking. Rather than ask “How smart are you?” the question asked should be “How are you smart?” Mike and Marty are intelligent in different ways....

Mike and Marty

...1) Freud could explain the personality differences between Mike and Marty Scanlon by saying that he believes much of our behavior is motivated by the unconscious, a part of the personality that contains the memories, knowledge, beliefs, feelings, urges, drives and instincts of which the individual is not aware of. Mike encountered some type of conflict during a stage in his life. It was most likely the phallic stage. If a problem occurred during this stage, they might produce an adult who fails to develop a conscience and has improper sex-role behavior. Marty would be viewed as he passed through that stage with no problem. 2) According to the Big Five personality traits Mike was careless, impulsive and disorganized. He was always in trouble and had absolutely no cares in the world. He would be rated highly in openness to experience and lowly in conscientiousness, highly in extraversion and lowly in agreeableness, and highly in neuroticism or emotional stability. Marty was quite, sympathetic, kind and appreciative, stable, calm, secure, and did not drink alcoholic beverages. He would be rated highly in openness to experience, highly in conscientiousness and lowly in extroversion, highly in agreeableness and in neuroticism or emotional stability. 3) Given that Mike and Marty are twins and share some of their genetic makeup, but I do not believe they have pronounced difference in personality.

Mike Carona: Amercia's Sheriff?

...Carona” (Coker). Michael S. "Mike" Carona is a convicted felon and former Sheriff-Coroner of Orange County, California. According to the OC Register, as a convicted felon, Mike Carona is currently collecting $195,120 annually from his pension. For Mike Carona crime did pay. But how is this possible? Authors Saavedra, Schwebke, and Tillman stated a new state law that only became effective in 2006 denies a public pension to any public official convicted of wrongdoing in office. Due to this law, if Carona is convicted, he would be denied benefits accumulated from January 2006 through his leaving office, which is just one year. This means Carona will still collect the majority of his pension. The thought of anyone convicted of crimes receiving a public pension has not gone unseen. Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors at the time, John Moorlach confirmed that Carona would indeed still receive his pension when asked about it. Moorlach sarcastically stated "I think working for the county is wonderful. If you're indicted, you still get your pension" (OC Register). Moorlach led county supervisors to file suit to repeal the pension. The suit was rejected and is now pending appeal. Furthermore, there was a petition to put Carona’s pension back into OC schools, however nothing was been done yet and Carona is still collecting. In a matter of time Carona went from “America’s Sherriff” to convicted felon. How did this happen? It all started when Mike Carona was appointed......

Big as It Is

...Big as it is, Canepa Design is easy to miss. The discreet boxy building sits just off a busy street in the quiet northern California town of Scotts Valley, just up the winding highway from Santa Cruz. But for car lovers, this place beams like St. Peter’s, an inviting treasure chest stuffed with classic automobiles worthy of pilgrimage. Vintage racing Porsches rub sheetmetal shoulders with iconic ‘60s Ferraris, which sit mere wheel-wells away from the last Shelby Cobra to exit the factory gates. Some vehicles are being restored for their wealthy owners, others are being spiffed up to hit Canepa Design’s showroom, while a few enjoy some mechanical pampering before being returned to their places of honor upstairs in the on-site motorsports museum. “I never get tired of coming to work,” says Bruce Canepa, the racing driver who since 1980 — the heyday of his professional exploits behind the wheel of all manner of Porsche beasts — has quietly turned Canepa Design into one of the foremost auto restoration and classic car sales shops in the nation. “Besides, I’m too obsessed with being in control of all the details to stop coming in.” Obsession and control can be a dangerous cocktail. But not in Canepa’s case. His hands-on personality means the cars coming out of this 70,000-square-foot shop often exceed the exacting standards of his monied clientele. When Canepa leans over the exposed engine bay of the aforementioned 1967 Cobra 427, he points out that “everything on this......

...ways to grow their business. Economists have discussed the two most important issues in International Business are: - What drives firm strategy? - What determine the success and failure of firms around the world? Most of the times in International Business authors rely on two frameworks, namely institution based view (developed by Porter in 1980) and resources based view (exemplified by Barney in 1991). The first one explains that conditions within an industry determine firm strategy and performance, whereas the second one focuses on the firm specific differences. What Mike Peng found out is that these economists were ignoring formal and informal institutions that provide the context of competition among industries and firms (because they based their theories on a relatively stable market-based institutional framework). As a matter of fact, in “An institution-based view of international business strategy”, Mike Peng presents in a first part how institutions are the “third leg in strategy tripod” and what is the key question in international business. In a second part, he develops four diverse areas of substantive research regarding business in emerging economies, which are antidumping as entry barriers, competing in and out of India, growing a firm in China and finally governing a corporation in emerging economies....
