Re: Microeconomics Simulations

 

Introduction

 

This memorandum report identifies and explains key microeconomic principles using a set of simulation games. The outcome of these games illustrate how microeconomic principles can be applied within real-life situations to help us make better business decisions. This report is a summary of the simulations I played and their results, which include the key takeaways and their significance, for your review and reference. It is divided into the following sections:

 

  1. Comparative Advantage
  2. Competitive Markets and Externalities
  3. Production, Entry, and Exit
  4. Market Structures (including the Price Discrimination and Cournot simulations)
  5. Conclusions
  6. References

 

 

Comparative Advantage

 

[Replace this area with the Comparative Advantage Simulation Results.]

Figure 1.1

 

 

[Insert your responses to the following questions: How does this simulation demonstrate how individuals evaluate opportunity costs to make business decisions? Explain what role the production-possibility frontier (PPF) has in the decision-making process.]

 

[Explain how comparative advantage impacts a firm’s decision to engage in trade. Would a business’s decision to trade cause a change to its PPF? Provide specific reasoning to support your claims.]

 

Competitive Markets and Externalities

 

[Replace this area with the Competitive Markets Simulation Results.]

Figure 2.1

 

[Replace this area with the Externalities (with Policy Intervention) Simulation Results.]

Figure 2.2

 

                [Insert your responses to the following questions: What impact do policy interventions have on the supply and demand equilibrium for a product? Provide specific examples from the simulation to illustrate.]

 

[What are the determinants of price elasticity of demand? Identify at least three examples. Based on the outcome of the simulation, explain how price elasticity can impact pricing decisions and total revenue of the firm.]

 

[Based on the results of the simulation, can policy market interventions cause a change in consumer or producer surplus? Explain why using specific reasoning.]

 

 

 

Production, Entry, and Exit

 

[Replace this area with the Production Entry and Exit Simulation Results.]

Figure 3.1

 

                [Insert your responses to the following questions: Analyze a business owner’s decision making regarding whether to enter a market. For example, what factors determined the driver’s entry and exit into the market in the simulation? Use economic models to support your analysis.]

 

[How does a business owner apply the concept of marginal costs to decide how much to produce? For example, how did the driver determine how many hours to drive each day? Use economic models to explain.]

 

[How does the impact of fixed costs change production decisions in the short run and in the long run? Use the average-total-cost (ATC) model included in the textbook to demonstrate this impact.]

 

Market Structures

 

[Complete the table by selecting the appropriate response from the drop-down select menu within each cell, except for the final column in which you will enter your text-based response.]

 

Market Structure Number of Firms Type of Product Sold Price Taker? Price Formula Freedom of Entry? Short-run Profit? Long-run Profit? Industry Examples
Perfect Competition Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. [Insert two to three example industries that meet the criteria of the market structure.]
Monopolistic Competition Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. [Insert two to three example industries that meet the criteria of the market structure.]
Monopolies Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. [Insert two to three example industries that meet the criteria of the market structure.]
Oligopolies Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. Choose an item. [Insert two to three example industries that meet the criteria of the market structure.]

Table 4.1

 

                [Insert your responses to the following questions: Explain what market inefficiencies derive from monopolies and monopolistic competition. Use examples from the textbook to support your claims.]

 

[How do firms in an oligopolistic market set their prices? Use examples from the textbook to support your claims.]

 

[Explain how firms that compete in the four different market structures determine profitability. Use examples from the textbook to support your claims.]
