Hence, individuals will be having limited contribution in the market. Large number of firms leads to competition in the market. 2. Product Differentiation: Each firm is in a position to exercise some degree of monopoly (in spite of large number of sellers) through product differentiation.

I will start by defining ‘Competition’. Competition is the rivalry among sellers trying to achieve such goals as increasing profits, market share, and sales volume by varying the elements of the marketing mix: price, product, promotion and place. Next we will cover the topic of Imperfect Competition with its advantages and disadvantages. Monopolistic Competition with respect to its characteristics will be the last topic to be covered in the report. Imperfect Competition Imperfect competition is a competitive market situation where there are many sellers, but they are selling heterogeneous (dissimilar) goods as opposed to the perfect competitive market scenario.
His model is essentially used to decide the "engaging quality", or productivity potential, for firms inside an industry (Roy, 2011). Every force depicts an alternate arrangement of impacts on the organisations of that industry. For EPL, the industry being referred to is proficient games; be that as it may, every alliance does not really experience similar forces to similar degree. This examination addresses how the Five Forces influence the English Premier League. Threat of Entrants The first of these forces is the threat of new entrants.
The assumptions of monopolistic competition are as follows: • The industry is build of large number of firms • Firms are free to enter or leave the industry • All firms produce slightly differentiated products • Price maker Like perfect competition, there are no barriers to entry or exit. Though unlike perfect competition the products are not identical, competitors sell products that are differentiated from one another. More like Monopoly, in Monopolistic Competition the firms are price makers thus the producers decide the products’ prices. Oligopoly is a market structure where its challenge is between monopoly and monopolistic competition. The market is dominated by a few firms; firms either sell identical or differentiated products.

Theoretical perspectives in regards to advantages and disadvantages of consumer credits There are a large number of borrowings that people can obtain and each type may have distinct advantages and disadvantages. The types of borrowings that will be examine here are those considered as contentious. First of all, one of many form of consumer credit that seems to have more drawbacks as compared to the benefits are subprime lending. According to Hendry (2007), subprime lending is a type of lending given to people who does not meet the lenders criteria such as small risk of default or delinquency. Therefore, considering the bank is bearing a higher risk, it seems fair that the borrowers are getting the chance to borrow even with higher interest
At first glance, commodities and gifts appear to represent two unique entity as the forms and functions of exchanging them are fundamentally distinct. In the last few decades, as the competition in the market becomes increasingly cutthroat. Companies begin to employ different strategies to differentiate their products from their competitor. Consequently, this blurred the distinction between previously defined concepts of commodity and gifts. This paper will provide a detailed analysis of the characteristics which distinguish gift-exchange from commodity exchange and reveals that the commodity, like the gift, can be used to create certain types of social bonds and mutual obligation between parties and also possess a quality of the giver as well as manifest a form of inalienability from the giver.

This can be achieved through many avenues such as providing consumers with greater value by either lowering prices or providing a product or services that justifies a higher cost .Prevailing attitude on this subject matter would suggest that factors like labour cost, interest and exchange rates and economies of scale are principal factors in determining national success. However, we learn from Porters article that real Competitive Advantage is developed by innovation applied to the Diamond Model or The Diamond of National Advantage, which in essence are four characteristics that both individually and as a system collectively form the Diamond of Nations. These Characteristics are: Factor conditions, demand conditions, related and supported industries firm strategy, structure and rivalry. Factor Conditions: This is a nation’s position on factors of production such as skilled labour force or infrastructure that is necessary in order to compete in a given industry.
