Select one real life example from your home country for any two of the four market structures:

i)  perfectly competitive market, ii) monopolistically competitive market, iii) oligopoly, and iv) monopoly. Describe your two examples in sufficient details (with references). Use economic theory to contrast the selected two market structures with relation to allocation of resources for each of your examples.


In answering this question, as a minimum, you need to:


        Describe your examples in sufficient details, provide relevant information, use tables and diagrams where appropriate.

        Use features of market structures such as number of sellers, type of product, entry conditions, profits and losses in the short and long run, advertising, research and development , efficiency, resource allocation and appropriate diagrams to answer this question.

        While your textbook is your first point of reference for the theory, you should consult other references in order to receive full marks.

         Real life examples must be supported by real data and references.

Q2…................................................................................................... (Total 15 Marks)

Define market failure and explain the situation where market mechanism operates inefficiently. Choose one real life example of market failure (negative externality) as your case study. Identify the type of market failure in relation to your case study. Examine your examples on the presence of market failure which involves market outcomes that are socially unacceptable. Discuss how market failures in your example can be corrected. Using an economic theory develop a policy that will mitigate or correct this market failure. Use diagrams to illustrate your proposed policy.

·         This is the analysis of your case study where you need to analyse the effect of government intervention using the theory and real data from your case study.
