Table 14.11 shows levels of employment (Labor), the marginal product at each of those levels, and a monopoly’s marginal revenue.

1. What is the monopoly’s marginal revenue product at each level of employment?
2. If the monopoly operates in a perfectly competitive labor market where the going market wage is \$ 2 0 , what is the film’s profit maximizing level of employment?

The table shows levels of employment (Labor), the marginal product of each of those levels, and a monopoly's marginal revenue. What is the monopoly's marginal revenue product at each level of employment? If the monopoly operates in a perfectly competitive labor market where the going market wage is \$20, what is the firm's profit maximizing level of employment?
Consider the graph at right for a monopsonistic labor market. The competitive wage is \$750.00 per hour, and the competitive labor use is 62.50 workers. In a monopsonistic labor market, the amount of labor used will be 41.7 workers and the wage will be \$ per hour (round your answer to the nearest penny). (Round all of the following answers to the nearest dollar.) In a monopsonistic labor market, consumer surplus will be \$ ; the monopsonistic labor market producer surplus will be area \$, and the monopsonistic labor market producer deadweight loss will be \$ w, wage per hour 1400.00- 1200.00- 1000.00- 800.00- 600.00- 400.00- 200.00- Monopsonistic Labor Market 833.33 0.00+ 0.0 41.7 40.0 L, Workers per hour 80.0 ME S D Q
