Product and Factor Markets

households demand the good or service produced by that firm. • Inputs are demanded by a firm if.Derived demand • It is demand for resources (inputs) that is dependent on the demand for the outputs those resources can be used to produce. and only if. .

• Inputs can be complementary or substitutable. This means that a firm‟s input demands are tightly linked together. .Inputs: Complementary and Substitutable The productivity of an input is the amount of output produced per unit of that input.

Labor Supply Labor supply is the willingness and ability to work specific amounts of time at alternative wage rates in a given time period. .

MPL.Marginal product of labor (MPL) It is the additional output produced by one additional unit of labor The marginal revenue product (MRP) MRP of a variable input is the additional revenue a firm earns by employing one additional unit of input. times the marginal product of labor. PX. • MRPL equals the price of output. ceteris paribus. .

Wage Rate (dollars per hour) The Classical View of the Labor Market The labor supply curve illustrates the amount of labor that households want to supply at the particular wage rate. The labor demand curve illustrates the amount of labor that firms want to employ at the particular wage rate. Labor supply w2 w1 B A 0 q1 q2 Quantity of Labor (hours per week) .

• Higher wages represent more goods and services and thus induce people to substitute labour for leisure. • A worker might also respond to higher wage rates by working less. . not more • Income Effect of Wages – An increased wage rate allows a person to reduce hours worked without losing income. • Substitution Effect of Wages – An increased wage rate encourages people to work more hours (to substitute labour for leisure).

Classical economists believe that the labor market always clears If labor demand decreases. . Everyone who wants a job at W* will have one. the equilibrium wage will fall. There is always full employment in this sense.

Elasticity of % change in quantity of labor supplied = labor supply % change in wage rate .The elasticity of labor supply is the percentage change in the quantity of labor supplied divided by the percentage change in wage rate.

Labor Demand The demand for labor is the quantity of labour employers are willing and able to hire at alternative wage rates in a given time period Derived demand is the demand for labor and other factors of production resulting from (depending on) the demand for final goods and services produced by these factors .

• The quantity of labor demanded also depends on its price (the wage rate). Wage Rate (dollars per hour) Demand for labor W1 W2 A B 0 L1 L2 Quantity of Labor (hours per month) .The Labor-Demand Curve • The number of workers hired is not completely dependent upon the demand for the product.

Marginal physical product (MPP) is the change in total output associated with one additional unit of input Marginal change in total output = physical product change in quantity of labor .
