AQA A-level Economics (new spec) Market Structures/Objectives of the Firm Revisited

AQA A-level Economics (new spec) Market Structures/Objectives of the Firm Revisited

This is a Powerpoint (and accompanying Notes/Key Terms sheet) that I created for my own teaching of the new (linear) AQA A-level Economics specification (7135). As I was also using the AQA-approved textbook (Powell & Powell, 2016) the two follow a similar route through the material. Topics covered in this Powerpoint:4.1.5.1 Market structures• The spectrum of competition ranging from perfect competition at one end of the spectrum to pure monopoly at the other end of the spectrum.• Factors such as the number of firms, the degree of product differentiation and ease of entry are used to distinguish between different market structures.4.1.5.2 The objectives of firms• The models that comprise the traditional theory of the firm are based upon the assumption that firms aim to maximise profits.• The profit-maximising rule (MC=MR).• The reasons for and the consequences of a divorce of ownership from control.• Firms have a variety of other possible objectives.• The satisficing principle.• Students should recognise that firms have a range of possible objectives including survival, growth, quality, maximising their sales revenue and increasing their market share.• Students should be able to discuss how the divorce of ownership from control may affect the objectives of firms, their conduct and performance.
