44 Production of goods and services Production function in the general Q = F(X1, X2, X3…Xn) where Q is output and X1…Xn represent the inputs and available technology returns to proportion represent what happens when one input changes and the others are held constant - diminishing returns marginal product - change in q for a unit change in an input holding other inputs constant ( 29 1 1 X Q X MP =

88 Production concepts Returns to scale(a long run concept) - when all the inputs are changed by the same proportion (e.g. doubled) constant increasing diminishing we will generally assume constant returns to scale ( 29 2 1 2 ... 2 2 X X f Q = ( 29 2 1 2 ... 2 2 X X f Q < ( 29 2 1 2 ... 2 2 X X f Q

99 Distributing Income to Factors of Production The concept of a competitive firm goal is to maximize profits = revenue - costs small relative to market prices dictated by the market factor prices are given every firm has the same information
