To quickly review: the characteristics of Monopolistic Competition
tell us the following:
- Many Firms
- No single firm is sufficiently large enough to affect the demand
curves faced by other firms.
- Product Differentiation
- Each firm sells a product that differs in some way from that of
all of its competitors, so each firm faces a downward sloping
- Free Entry
- Long run profits are zero. Firms enter the industry when it is
profitable until profits return to zero, losses lead to exit until
profits return to zero.
