Student Q&A's with Dirk

Can you explain me the profit maximization when firm is the price taker?

This question asked by simran . from university of arizona

The profit-maximzing rule (MR = MC) is the smae for price takers and price makers, The key thing to recall is that there is second part to the rule that a lot of students forget, it is a rule for stopping prodction. This means that you find the point where MR = MC and MC is is also rising -- this guarantees that you stop at the point where the firm makes the most profit.
