Pricing options


Setting price to achieve specific business objectives is one of the most significant decisions a firm will make. Under conditions of perfect competition individual firms are price takers and have no influence on price. In this case the industry as a whole sets the price. When firms operate in less than perfectly competitive markets they can make their own price.
