Market Structures When considering a market and the market structure that distinguishes the type of market system, the infrastructure of each system is separated by several criteria. Factors such as size and actual number of consumers and producers, various services and goods in the market and the relationships of the parties involving the freedom of information and how freely the information flows in the market, distinguish the type of system and business relationship.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
