sarath It first chooses a level of output by selecting MR = MC ....and then choosing the corresponding price on the market demand curve.
myzec Please explain the difference between market demand and aggregate demand
wundac Aggregate demand is the total amount of goods and services demanded in the economy at alternative income in a given period, including both consumer and producer's good: Total spending. Market Demand is the total demand of all consumers in a market. In this case only the sums of the quantities demanded by each consumer at every price are used to determine the level of demand experienced by entire market at each price.
