muneeb70 I understand choice I but not III
johnowens Premium Price = I

Differentiated Products = III
viannie premium products command better margin but also require more cost in advertising (expense).
Also, differentiated products, need to expense more resources in differentiating your products -> in R&D, niche raw materials that's more expensive etc ...
johntan1979 Agree with viannie. Think of Apple vs Wal-Mart
davcer think about perfect competition and monopolistic competition, in perfect competition there is a perfectly elastic mkt demand so you sell at the mkt price, but in monopolistic competition you can charge higher prices but need to differentiate your products with advertising, marketing, etc etc, thus incurring in more expenses
