Abstract

The analysis of the input markets is a not usual topic in a standard course of microeconomics and there is no explanation about the decisions of the firms when they buy in the input market. In contrast, there are different approaches to explain mechanisms of choice of the firm in the production and commercialization of final goods in oligopolistic and monopolistic context. This note proposes a reflection of the problem using conventionally used tools to understand the firm in the market of final goods.
