I don’t think that we are making decisions based on a price. I don’t think that a company like S&P has an incentive to put their product in the same price as a competitor. The same is true for small-cap services like Amazon.com. That said, I think they are more likely to get your product in the same price as they are to get it out of the market.
There are two types of oligopoly in the market. There are those that dominate because they have the largest market share. That market share does not necessarily equal high prices. It is possible for a company to have a low price but a good product. For instance, Apple has low prices, but the same product can be sold at a high price, or at the lower end of the price range. There is a third type that is known as a “tragedy of the commons”.
In the last few years, oligopolistic companies have been able to break free of the market, and go out into the open market, sell directly to consumers. They have found that their prices are lower than what they would have to pay for the same output from a third party. That is the tragedy of the commons. They are able to sell to consumers who are willing to pay for this output.
The tragedy of the commons is the possibility that there could be situations where the supply of a product or service is so tightly controlled by a few companies that the price is set so low that even if the company itself could make the output cheaper, it doesn’t matter.
The price of the services that are on the supply side, on the demand side, and the price of a product or service is the total cost of that product or service that was sold to the consumer. The answer is “Yes.” It’s an easy way to understand how people are buying products and services to pay for them.
I’ve always viewed this as a huge, important question, and I’m looking for a more nuanced understanding of the question.
A more detailed answer: I’ve looked into the relationship between the price of a service and its service’s cost to the consumer, and there are many studies and reviews on this topic. All of these studies and reviews are good, but there is no evidence that the price of a service (i.e., the cost of it) has any direct correlation with the consumer’s cost of that service (i.e., the price of it).
It’s impossible to be a customer yourself, but Ive found that if you have a company that does something and you are the customer, then you are the customer.
