WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF MONOPOLY?




Meaning: -The term “MONOPOLY” is derived from two Greek words “Mono” which means “Single” and “Poly” which means “Sellers”. Thus Monopoly refers to “market structure in which asingle seller controls the entire market”. And therefore the seller is a price maker and not the price taker.

4.      Technological monopoly: -Big firms enjoy technological monopoly due to their superior technology and economies of scale. Other firms do not have the access to such technology cannot produce the quality goods produced by big firms.

6.      Discriminating monopoly: -In a discriminating monopoly, the firm charges different prices to different buyers in the same market or in different markets fir the same product.
