Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. 29) What are the most important differences between perfectly competitive markets and monopolistically competitive markets? 29) Answer: In both perfectly competitive and monopolistically competitive industries there are many firms and low barriers to entry. However, while products are identical in perfectly competitive markets, products are similar — but not identical — in monopolistically competitive markets.
