  So I had a economics quiz today and this question puzzled me: It's a True or False question: In the circular-flow diagram, firms own the factors of production and use them to produce goods and services. The answer is False. My professor explained to us that firms do not OWN factors of production, but rather HIRE factors of production. I was confused by this. ADVERTISEMENTS: Cost Theory: Introduction, Concepts, Theories and Elasticity! Introduction: The firm’s costs determine its supply. Supply along with demand determines price. To under­stand the process of price determination and the forces behind supply, we must understand the nature of costs. We study some important concepts of costs, and traditional and modern theories of cost.

New firms embody innovative approaches in production, goods, or formats. Additionally, new technology allows firms to do. Supply schedule. A supply schedule is a table which shows how much one or more firms will be willing to supply at particular prices under the existing circumstances. Some of the more important factors affecting supply are the good's own price, the prices of related goods, production costs, technology, the production function, and expectations of sellers.

Other firms increased their prices or cut back on their marketing and advertising expenses. A firm has to remember, however, that prices signal value. If consumers do not perceive that a product has a high degree of value, they probably will not pay a high price for it.

They, therefore, set prices in relation to cost. They may consider it desirable to .Long‐run average total cost curve. In the long‐run, all factors of production are variable, and hence, all costs are variable. The long‐run average total cost curve (LATC) is found by varying the amount of all factors of r, because each SATC corresponds to a different level of the fixed factors of production, the LATC can be constructed by taking the “lower envelope.LEARNING OBJECTIVES After reading this chapter, you should be able to: x Explain the nature of the business environment, and the relationship between the fi rm and its environment.
