    Perfect Competition Perfect competition is the market structure in which there are many sellers and buyers, firms produce a homogeneous product, and there is free entry into and exit out of the industry (Amacher, R., & Pate, J., 2013). The model of perfect competition is defined by many buyers and sellers to the extent that the supply of one firm makes a very insignificant contribution to the total supply.

    One of the common example of a market with perfect competition within the United States is agriculture. Since the introduction of farm subsidies in the United States many smaller farms find this to disrupt the perfect competition that they would face with the larger farms. Having the government’s support and financial advantages makes a huge difference within the competition, letting larger farms get ahead within the competition. Smaller farms are then forced to work themselves to death…

    With these characteristics, economists have broken firms into four different categories based on market structures. First of the four markets is a perfect competition market. One of the defining characteristics of this structure is that the firms can sell identical products, meaning there are many sellers of the same product. Because of this, each seller from each firm holds a very small portion of the overall market. Quite like perfect competition, monopolistic competition also has many sellers…
