F If a new entrant came into this industry with exactly the same product as the original ﬁrm,
was also able to produce with MC = 1, and competed in prices with the original ﬁrm, the Nash equilibrium price charged to consumers would be P=1. T 4. At the local fair there is a large container of change consisting of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. The
