Figure 9.5


Figure 9.5 shows the short-run and long-run effects of an increase in demand of an industry with increasing cost. The market is in equilibrium at point A, where 100 identical firms produce 6 units of a product per hour. If the market demand curve shifts to the right, what will happen to an individual firm's profit?

▸ Each firm earns a positive profit at point B.

▸ The profit of each firm decreases as more firms enter the market and share the benefits of an increase in demand pushing the market from point A to point B.

▸ Each firm earns a zero profit at point B because the market is perfectly competitive.

▸ none of the above
