MARKET EFFICIENCY ch 3,4 7(skim) (“market efficiency” posted under extra readings tab on Bb) Prelim: measuring efficiency - Recall that we evaluate actions “at the margin” o The issue is not whether an action is “good” ro “bad” but whether a little more action will generate more benefits than costs - Consider a patent, an exclusive right to sell a product for 20 yrs o The benefit of a patnt is that it provides firms and induviduals with the incentive to develop new and better products o The cost of a patent is that it reduces competition, and thus allows patent holders to charge higher prices - Would it be efficient to have longer patent protection o If extending the duration of patents would generate additional benefits of $35 billion and additional costs of $20 billion, we would judge the action to be EFFICIENT (MB>MC) - An action is efficient only if the marginal benefits are greateer than the marginal costs - The MOST EFFICIENT action is one that produces the biggest net gain (i.e. biggest postivie difference between MB and MC) The social welfare consequences of markets - What purpose do markets serve o Markets are a medium which allows buyers and sellers to efficiently allocate resources - Trade in markets (and specialization) are big reasons why people are so much better off today than 200, 100, 50 years ago o Greater caloric intake o
