Role of Fixed Costs

Fixed costs did not appear in our discussion of

pricing. Why?

Net loss

Fixed cost determines whether the business is

profitable or not, but not how the pricing

decision should be made

Sunk Cost Fallacy Revisited

Business looks unprofitable. Temptation (1)

close it (2) raise prices to bring in more

revenues. But From the perspective of

relevant (forward looking) costs and

revenues, it is profitable!! And, there is no

way to improve things by charging higher

(or lower) prices.

- Positive profits
- Sunk cost not recovered

Fallacies

- Monopoly power fallacy
- monopolist can charge any price she likes -

Microsoft - Imitation fallacy
- price to match competitors - Eurotunnel
- Fixed cost fallacy
- pass on fixed cost increases to consumers -

Seagram - price to recover fixed costs
- Sunk cost fallacy
- take into account costs that decisions cannot

possibly impact

Lesson so Far

- All questions about pricing have the same

answer (although it may not - always be a helpful one) MR MC.
- The equality of MR and MC gives us a systematic

way to understand - what determines optimal pricing
- For a monopolist MR lt P.
- Cost is a dynamic concept. Make sure you avoid

cost fallacies - The monopolist prices charges a higher price

(lower output) than - that which maximizes revenue.

Summary Solving the monopolists pricing problem

- Option I
- Obtain the inverse demand and the MR curves
- Equate MC MR ? obtain Q
- Plug in Q into the inverse demand to obtain P
- Option II (linear demand, constant MC)
- Use theMidpoint pricing rule
- P (Pchoke MC)/2
- Plug in P into the demand to obtain Q

Wrap Up session 6

- A profit maximizing firm produces up to the

point where MC MR. - The equality of MR and MC gives us a systematic

way to understand - what determines optimal pricing
- For a monopolist MR lt P.
- Cost is a dynamic concept. Make sure you avoid

cost fallacies - Be able to solve the monopolists pricing

problem numerically and - graphically.
- Be able to use the Midpoint pricing rule P

(Pchoke MC)/2 - Monopoly pricing implies substantial consumer

surplus and a deadweight - loss ? Antitrust Law

How pricing depends on the demand curve

- How elasticity relates to revenue
- How elasticity relates to pricing
- Implications of the mark up elasticity formula
- Rule of thumb for monopoly pricing
- How to price in different markets
- Effect of an exogenous demand shift

Evaluate

- After a advertising campaign, the cost of the

advertising is sunk. Hence, the advertising

campaign should have no effect on the firms

pricing. - What happened to airline prices just after

September 11, 2001?

Recall Elasticity

- The elasticity of demand measures demand

responsiveness - Or

Elasticity and Revenue

- If P decreases (i.e., Q increases), what is the

effect on Revenue?

Marginal revenue and elasticity

- What is the effect on revenue from selling one

more unit of output? - Effect 1 You sell one more unit of output for P
- Effect 2 You have to decrease your price by dP/

dQ for all Q units you could have sold at higher

price (the adjustment term) - Net Effect MR P (dP/dQ)Q

Lesson so Far

- For profit maximization we need

- The Mark-up elasticity formula

- How may I use this?

A monopolist operates on the elastic portion of

the demand.

- The effect of exogenous demand shifts on price is

Determinants of elasticity

- The more close substitutes a good has, the _____

elastic is demand. - Demand for a particular brand (Hitachi) or (17

flat panel) is _____ elastic than demand for the

entire category (computer displays). - The more differentiated the brand, the ____

elastic is demand. - Advertising usually both increases demand and

makes it _____ elastic. - Demand is _____ elastic in the long run (after

consumers have time to adjust). - Demand is typically ____ elastic for people with

lower income.

Implications of the mark up elasticity formula

- A monopolist operates in the elastic part of his

demand. - The higher the elasticity the lower the price.
- The effect of exogenous demand shifts on price is

ambiguous.

Wrap up Session 7

- Elasticity and marginal cost determine the price

not supply and demand. - The profit maximizing price satisfies
- Be able to interpret the mark-up elasticity

formula and its implications. - The more elastic the demand is, the lower the

price is. - The effect of a demand shift on price is ambiguous
