These two combined are referred to as forgone costs Important Terms: Marginal Product of Labor: The change in total output of (1) additional Total Product Curve: Curve that represents a relationship between quantities of labor & quality of output Law of Variable Proportions: Eventually Diminishing Returns Y will increase at an increased rate Before it increases at a decreased rate, and before it decreases at an increased rate Marginal Product: Where you currently are at financially-> where you were Average Product: Total product divided by # of units of labor 3/23/16 Law of Variable Proportions-> Diminishing Returns (Y is output) Y will increase at an increases rate Before it increase at a decreases rate Before it decreases at an increases rate Want to produce at a line tangent to axis, right by negative 3/25/16 Fixed Costs: Costs that do not change as output changes (ex. salary, rent/lease agreement) Total Variable Cost: Cost that changes as the BF’s change output (ex. hourly wages, electric, cost of goods sold) Total Cost: FC + TVC (Fixed + variable cost) Marginal Cost (MC): Change in TC from producing (1) more (g) &/or (s) Avg. Fixed Cost: Avg. Variable Cost: TVC / Q produced Avg. Total Cost: AFC + AVC or TC / Q produced ­ The total cost of an item would mirror the TVC ­ Diminishing returns sets in, & it begins to fall ­ Marginal cost will pull the avg. cost ­ MC increases, it will pull the AVC cost up, MC decreases, it will pull the AVC down ­ AVC goes down hits MC, & goes back up ­ ATC starts high, dips low, hits the MC, and starts to come back up again ­ Supply is MC, they are equal. When you see one, it means that the other is there ­ MC/S is production, but diminishing returns sets in ­ Variable costs are changing, fixed stay the same ­ Production factors affect ATC and FC when more is produced (why? Since you’re spreading your fixed costs out) ­ ATC starts high because the FC is being spread thin ­ LRTC: (Long Range Total Cost) The total cost of producing when there is a total flexibility in inputs ­ LRAC = LRTC / Q ­ Economies of Scale: w/ an increase in production the (BF) has decreased in LRAC ­ The real cost for BF does not go up ­ The nominal or face value may, but not the real cost End of Week 7 notes.
