Economists suppose that there are various buyers and sellers in the marketplace which means that competition is everywhere in the market which in turn allowed price to change in reaction to changes in supply and demand. In Economics, there are some market structures that describes how each structure compete in a different competitive situation. Monopoly is one. Monopoly is one of the market structures whereby there is one producer or seller which means, the industry is the single business.
