Marginal Cost Curve - EconWeb    At very low levels of output marginal cost may actually be falling. At most levels of output, due to diminishing marginal product, marginal costs will be increasing in the short run. It is important to remember that the law of diminishing returns is strictly a short run phenomenon that occurs because at least one input cannot be changed in the short run.
